Begin Planning for 1997 Feast of Tabernacles

Servants' News will again be hosting a Feast of Tabernacles this year, October 16-23. We have found a new location this year: Burr Oak Resort in the Southeast corner of Ohio. Burr Oak Resort and Conference Center is in one of the many resorts in the Ohio State Park system.

The location is Glouster, Ohio, 85 miles southeast of Columbus, Ohio and 35 miles northwest of Marietta, Ohio. The resort is situated in the 3,256 acre park in some of the State's most beautiful hill country and includes a 664 acre lake.

If you prefer an intimate and interactive type of Feast, with scenic and serene atmosphere, then this location may be for you. We will have daily meetings of reading scriptures with lively discussion, youth activities, inspiring worship music, a variety show, a women's lecture and plenty of space for fellowship. Our purpose is to provide a place so that the Eternal's people can "rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days" (Lev 23:40) and "that you may learn to fear the Lord you God always" (Deut 14:23). The environment of the state park is conducive to getting to know others, which leads to a greater capacity to love one another. Our Savior said that if we have love for one another, then by this we will be known to be his disciples.

Guest rooms: 1 double and 1 single bed, $55 per night.

Cottages: 2 bdrm, beds for 6, has kitchen, $80 per night.
