“And you shall eat before the LORD your God, in the place where He chooses to make His name abide, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, of the firstborn of your herds and your flocks, that you may learn to fear the LORD your God always.” (Deuteronomy 14:23 – NKJV)
I’m very pleased to announce the city selected for the 2017 Feast of Tabernacles. All arrangements have now been finalized. I believe you’ll be pleased with the hotel, surrounding city, restaurants and planned activities. Just as we have in previous years, we will once again have a “Family Day” activity, and Church picnic.
The city is surrounded by rolling hills and a beautiful natural landscape.
The average temperature for the month of October consists of low to mid 70’s during the day, and low to mid 50’s at night.
The rooms available for us are a choice of a double queen bed room or a single king bed room, priced at $82.99 per night. Suites are also available for an extra charge. All rooms include the basic amenities, a coffee maker, mini-refrigerator and microwave oven.
Breakfast is included free of charge each day with your hotel stay, and consists of cereals, muffins, hot cinnamon rolls, toast, bagels, assorted fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, turkey sausage patties, pancakes, biscuits, bagels, coffee, tea, juices, milk, and more.
Three restaurants are within walking distance. Other restaurants are a very short drive away. Two grocery stores are within 5 miles of the hotel, as well as the main area of town, with more restaurants and shopping opportunities.
After the weekly Sabbath, you can begin making your reservations at the hotel. Just be sure to tell the hotel you are with the Church of God, to receive the discounted room rate, as mentioned above.
I will give more details about the Feast site and activities in the coming weeks. For now, I wanted to give you an overview of this year’s Feast site for 2017.
Now, the best part of the Feast is the spiritual aspect. We eagerly look forward to hearing the upcoming sermons and sermonettes, that we may continue our growth in grace and knowledge (II Peter 3:18).
Have a wonderful Sabbath, brethren!
Your Brother in Christ,
