Reading about past FOT
The last feast of 2018 has come to an end. To those who attended, we all made memories that will surely be cherished for years to come, but at the same time, remember that, as always, this was another wonderful, yet solemn gathering dedicated solely to YHWH. Here contains the summary of what occurred on different days of this eight-day observance. We hope to those who did not experience these first hand, will feel more closer with knowledge of what took place.
Each day had a different speaker with a different message to deliver. We sat before Dennis Martin, Bob Widmer, Curtis Holland, and Carlos Serrato Jr. Each of these men took the time to prepare thought provoking sermons and studies to discuss with our congregation.
Tuesday – 1st Day: Dennis Martin takes up the offertory and speaks the morning sermon. After lunch, Bob Widmer had the afternoon sermon.
Wednesday – 2nd Day: The Youth Class was blended again this year, but was cancelled some days due to lack of participation. For the morning sermon, Curtis Holland spoke. During the free afternoon, the children and teens had planned a Youth Hike with Kristin Netters and Amara DeFelice. This was cancelled due to rain.
Thursday – 3rd Day: Dennis Martin held a sermon in the morning. Later, Betty Martin led the Women’s Seminar in the afternoon slot.
Friday – 4th Day: In the morning, Bob Widmer spoke for the bible study. There was a free afternoon to all who wanted down time.
Sabbath – 5th Day: The sabbath began with the morning bible study, led by Carlos Serrato Jr. Curtis Holland spoke for the sermon in the afternoon. Karaoke Night was utilized somewhat, but mostly, there was an excess of glow sticks by the kids.
Sunday – 6th Day: Today was to be a family day, filled with games and other activities, but mostly was a free day. Dinner was grilled by the dads!
Monday – 7th Day: In the morning, the sermon was by Curtis Holland. In the afternoon, the bible study was led by Carlos Serrato Jr.
Tuesday – 8th Day: Two sermons were held on the last great day. In the morning, Bob Widmer spoke. The last sermon with Dennis Martin, closed out our services for the Feast of Tabernacles. Afterwards, we came together and took a group picture in front of the newly constructed dining hall (where we had been holding our services in).
Studying by Fire’s Side
Most of the fireside discussions were held inside or cancelled due to lack of participation. This year, due to the lack of stable connections, we were unable to broadcast any of the held discussions. If you would like to talk with someone who attended, then please email the pastor, Dennis Martin.
In the Company of Food
Food always tastes better when eaten with family, and our congregates, are family. We deeply appreciate all who helped prepare the meals and commend the bellies for happily eating it all. From the exuberant amount of pancakes made for breakfast night, to a biscuit show down on Family Day, there were many fun and interesting events that spawned from the kitchen. In the new dining hall, we all experienced laughter and fun while chatting over great food, so here’s to the anticipation for the meals of next year!
Even with a short summary like this, people cannot get the full picture if we don’t actively discuss it. So, remember, share your memories with everyone!
