Dear Brethren and Co-Workers,
Yahweh’s Assembly in Yahshua is pleased this year to be able to stay at a beautiful campground for the Feast of Tabernacles 2021, located 19 miles S.E. from the assembly building in Kingdom City, MO., and 8 miles east of Fulton, MO. The first High Day of this Feast will be on September 22nd with an opening service the evening before, at 7pm. We will be keeping The Eighth Day (also a High Sabbath) on September the 29th. We'll be there by 2:00pm on the 21st (rooms will be assigned at that time).
The main building contains a large kitchen stocked with all the necessary utensils. Those who dislike bunk beds will be thrilled to know that each room has two queen-sized beds and its own bathroom with shower. They are motel-style rooms. We may use the main kitchen for individual, as well as daily planned fellowship meals. See overall costs on registration form. If you use the lodge kitchen to prepare your own meals, you are asked to clean up after you are done.
A softball field and volleyball area are available, besides the inside and outside basketball courts. There is also a short trail on the property. Parents with younger children will be able to use an outdoor playground which is gated with fencing all the way around. An outdoor privacy deck for adults is also available approximate to the meeting sanctuary building.
Dress appropriately, as Missouri’s sometimes cool September days and nights demand warm clothing. But these days can also be warm and sometimes rainy. Prepare for any kind of weather. The campground does not allow pets, in addition to no smoking and no alcohol, so please make arrangements prior to attending. The manager of the property lives on site.
Just a reminder, we are extremely busy before the Feast. Those flying to St. Louis should check on the availability of the Greyhound bus line (Toll Free 1-800-231-2222), which makes a stop at St. Louis terminal. If you give us enough notice, we may be able to arrange for someone to come and pick you up. MoX (pronounced: mow-ex) is the shuttle service and they do drop-offs and pick-ups at Kingdom City, MO., for the St. Louis airport. Their toll-free number is 877-669-4826.
Again, please note that the first meeting will be at 7:00 pm Sunday evening (September 21st), which starts the High Sabbath of the Feast of Tabernacles. This date and time are of course contingent on the sighting of the Trumpets new moon the evening of September 7th.
To help us plan for a smooth-running Feast, please complete the enclosed reservation form and return to us by September 1st. Rooms will be reserved as the registration forms are received, so act now. You are asked to enclose a $50 non-refundable deposit when sending in your registration form. The $50 will be deducted from one’s total cost.
If you have never attended a Feast of Tabernacles, make this your year of obedience. Prove Yahweh now herewith and see whether He won’t pour out His blessings. We of Yahweh’s Assembly in Yahshua try to keep Tabernacles much as did ancient Israel. We gather in temporary dwellings such as campers, tents, and lodges where we can be fairly close together. We sacrifice some comforts of home for a week and spend time away from familiar surroundings. We try to be like obedient Abraham, who willingly left behind his friends, relatives, and family at Ur of the Chaldees, not knowing where he would end up. He, like us, have come to Yahweh. We are “tabernacled” here on earth, seeking the celestial city of Yahweh described in Revelation.
Keeping the Feast of Tabernacles helps focus our attention on spiritual things. We hear the Bible explained and prophecy examined so that we know what is coming. We sacrifice our time and energy, knowing that our willingness to set aside our will in order to keep Yahweh’s Feast of Tabernacles will bring blessings now and rewards that are out of this world. We look forward to seeing you at the Feast this year! Yahweh bless you in your willingness to serve Him through your obedience.
Yours in Master Yahshua’s service,
Elder David Brett (2021 Feast Chairman)
