Well, it is hard to believe that this will be our final email about information for the Feast of Tabernacles! As you know, we will be hosting Yahweh’s Feast of Tabernacles this year at the Paradise Stream Family Campground, in Loysville, PA. Our family will be setting up on Thursday, October 13th and leaving on Sunday October 23rd.
This will be a personal responsibility feast. Each family should bring enough food and place settings for their family. We will try to meet together as often as we can for corporate meals, with each household bringing a dish to share, and their own place settings, especially for lunch on the High Days.
All activities scheduled are completely voluntary.
Each head of household is welcome to bring their teachings, and family members any specials, talents, etc. This is Yahweh’s Feast, and all are welcome.
Please note, there are two double Sabbaths. Preparation day for them will be on Thurs., and the schedule will be light on Thurs. so that everyone can make their own preparations. (*This reminder is for those observing the Jerusalem sighting of the new moon - if you are on a different calendar, please plan accordingly)
There is a camp store, a laundry room and bath/shower facilities on the premises. The mini golf should be open. The pool will be closed, but if it is warm enough to swim, there is a creek to swim/wade in. There is a play ground, a game room, and a stocked lake with peddle boats.
This is what the schedule looks like.
Some early birds will be arriving on Wed the 12th :)
