Branson, Missouri 2016
Brethren attending the Feast in Branson will be holding their services at Presleys’ Country Jubilee. This well maintained, modern auditorium offers comfortable seating and a mezzanine for small group gatherings. There is also a “cry room” for fussy babies, which has audio and window viewing into the back of the theater. The parking lot is level with good access to the building for those needing assistance. Unfortunately, a fragrance free room is not available.
Presleys’ is located in the heart of Branson, a widely recognized, family-oriented resort town located in the hardwood-forested hills of the Ozarks. Fall colors provide a stunning, millennial setting during the Feast. An afternoon drive through the spectacular scenery brings you into close contact with God’s beautiful creation.
In addition to its natural beauty, Branson is home to several museums, including the Veterans Memorial Museum and the Titanic Museum. Showboat Branson Belle and the Branson Scenic Railway present enjoyable excursions into the local countryside. Kids will love the go-cart tracks and miniature golf courses. Music enthusiasts are treated to at least 90 live music shows. This year the Sight and Sound theater presents Moses.
Branson Landing offers waterfront shopping and dining in many upscale shops and fine restaurants. The College of the Ozarks is minutes away and is recognized for its unique values-driven program. Campus services that are open to the public include dining and a gift shop.
The recently opened Top of the Rock Ancient Ozark Natural History Museum explores the rich past of the Ozarks. This venue also includes the Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail. Dogwood Canyon Nature Park is a nature preserve open for hiking, biking and tram tours.
Branson has a wide variety of housing options ranging from first-class hotels to kitchenettes and cabins. Also available are many reasonably priced condos overlooking the hills or lakes.
Weather during the Feast is usually mild, with lows in the 50s and highs in the 60s and 70s.
Location of Services: Presleys’ Country Jubilee, 2920 W. 76 Country Blvd., Branson, MO 65616.
