Sunriver, Oregon is a non-aligned Feast of Tabernacles site. It is not sponsored by any corporate organization.
Sunriver is a recreational and retirement community located about 15 miles south of Bend, off of US Highway 97 in south central Oregon. The elevation of Sunriver is approximately 4,000 feet. The climate is mild with generally warm days and cool nights. With the Mt. Bachelor ski area located nearby, the area is beautiful and has hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, and sightseeing activities available to all.
Meetings are held at the Thousand Trails campground Lodge located a few miles south of Sunriver. Some of the brethren choose to stay at the campground in their RVs. Most, however, rent homes and condos in Sunriver. A couple of rental agencies have reduced rates due to the off-season period (4 nights for the cost of 2 nights). One such agency is Sunset Realty. Their phone number is 1-800-541-1756 . There are many motels located in nearby Bend.
We meet in Sunriver: to worship our Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ, through celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles, to learn to fear Almighty God, and come to a greater understanding of His way of life and Plan for mankind. We welcome all who choose to join us. For more information, please write to Al Murrey, 2160 SW 2nd Ave., Ontario, OR 97914; or call (541) 881-8600.
So. Calif. Feast Plans Canceled
The Church of God, Southern California regrets to have to inform you that we have to cancel plans for a feast site this year, 1998, in beautiful, idyllic Arrowhead Springs Conference Center. We were late in making plans for 1998 and Arrowhead Springs was already booked to near full capacity in the main hotel on the weekends. Nevertheless, the manager thought he would be able to give us all rooms in the main hotel during the week daysfrom Sunday to Friday.
However, we now find out that there are only a very few rooms available (10) during the weekdays and only 2 during the weekend. The accommodations in the "Village" area where we would have to move are decent except that the rooms all have been made for a youth camp and have a king size bed surrounded with three sets of bunk beds which the manager is not sure he would be able to move at feast time.
Considering the lateness of our plans, and the changes from Arrowhead Springs Conference Center, we decided to plan now for 1999! So, we would like to invite all of you to join us for a most marvelous feast of Tabernacles in 1999 here in Southern California at the Arrowhead Springs Christian Conference Center with all its beauty and seclusion from the world.
We apologize for the disappointment so many will feel but we want this festival to be very special, edifying, relaxing and enjoyable to all. We feel that by starting now for 1999 we will have our pick of the best rooms and facilities.
Thank you for your encouragement and understanding in this venture. Please let us hear from you what you think.
