Utica Illinois, Feast of Tabernacles 2010
in Pictures

by Norman Edwards

The Feast of Tabernacles in Utica, Illinois was attended by over 300 people and was a great blessing. It was held at Grizzly Jack’s Grand Bear Resort. Most of the people attending stayed right at the resort, so it was always easy for everyone, young or old, to attend the events they wanted. When information is available for next year’s Feast, it will be posted at feast2011.org.

The music was excellent with a great variety being presented. Words were always on several big screens, so it was easy to sing along. Most people left services feeling that they had been inspired.

A tabernacle was constructed in the corner of the main meeting room as taught in the Bible (Lev 23:40-42; Neh 8:15). Most of the teaching was done in interactive seminars where everyone could ask questions and participate. There was a variety to choose from—one could spend the whole Feast and never hear the same speaker twice.

About half the people were between the ages of 15 and 25. A lot of friends were made that will be kept for many years. Several engagements and marriages have occurred among people who became acquainted with others at these Feasts and at mid-year retreats hosted by many of the same people. When young people happily marry someone of a certain religious belief, they are much more likely to stay in that belief. May God continue to bless His Feasts! (Lev 23:1-4)


The Utica Feast hosted many activities for all ages. Pictures here are one of the five group meals attended by nearly everyone and an ad-hoc hike in the nearby woods. There were also, sports, dances, crafts, and plenty of good old-fashioned fellowship.
