More 1999 Feast Sites

These sites are in addition to the many in our last issue. Please let Feast sponsors know now where you are planning to attend! It is very difficult to plan a Feast when the number of people attending is unknown. Time and money are wasted if estimates are too high. Facilities are too crowded if estimates are too low. Not sure yet? It is still better to let them know now and change your mind later if necessary.


• Unless otherwise noted, dates of the Feast are the evening of September 24 through October 2, 1999.

• Please send info on other sites to Servants’ News (see contact information on page 2 or back cover).

New England Feast

We are pleased to host a traditional Feast of Tabernacles site in beautiful Mystic, Connecticut. Mystic is a majestically restored seaport and village, in the southeast corner of Connecticut. It is right on I-95, about one hour from Providence airport, and also the Hartford-Springfield airport, Bradley International. AMTRAK has a station in Mystic, and with the many operating shuttles, those without automobiles can enjoy the area.

The Residence Inn by Marriott will be our primary host (860-536-5150). They have many facilities, and are offering attractive rates on their suites, which are really complete apartments. The Comfort Inn next door offers regular rooms with breakfast (860-572-8531). Ask for the "Northeast Church of God rates" when you make reservations.

We will have a full schedule of services, with live speakers, and familiar music, with some sampling from the new Mark Graham hymnal. As this site will be relatively small, those with talents are encouraged to participate. The Residence Inn includes several meals in the room rate, so we will have ample opportunity to spend time together as the Body of Christ should.

Multi-Group in Rye, England

This Festival site is affiliated with the Intercontinental Church of God (Garner Ted Armstrong). However, it is supported by people who receive taped sermons from many others: Ron Dart, Don Deakins, Fred Coulter, etc. As in previous years Mr. Frank Scherich and his wife Pat (of the Intercontinental Church of God) from Texas will be joining us as the Festival elders.

Services will be held at the Rye Treasury (of musical Instruments); 20 Cinqport Street; Rye, Sussex; England TN31 7AD. This is a museum, the meeting will be held in a room above the museum. Rye has several first class hotels housed in ancient buildings. There are also many excellent Bed & Breakfast establishments and self-catering properties. We would like people to book their own accommodation. An official Guide for Rye can be requested from Rye Tourist Information Centre; The Heritage Centre; Strand Quay; Rye, Sussex; England TN31 7AY.

[Servants’ News has previously carried articles explaining why we believe that Garner Ted Armstrong does not meet the qualifications in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, but since international sites are few, this site may still be the best choice for some brethren to keep the Feast and fellowship with other believers.] &
