A United Church of God Feast of Tabernacles site



Greetings Brethren,

The Branson feast site is prepared for your arrival to celebrate God’s wonderful Feast of Tabernacles. I am sending this email to remind you of several things that you will need to know prior to arriving at the feast site.


Our schedule is available on our Branson, MO feast website. Please download it if you wish, and it will also be in our brochure.


We do plan to project hymn lyrics on the screen during our services. Of course, you are welcome to bring your personal hymnals if you prefer.


On Youth Day, Monday, our children's choir will be performing. In conjunction with this we wish to distribute any donated stuffed animals to all the children attending the Feast. This will be done after services. Donations of stuffed animals (preferably a millennial type animal), should be taken to Information by Sunday after services.


The offerings that we give to God on the Holy Days are a vital part of our worship of God. We show our thankfulness for God’s generosity, as well as our spirit of generosity.  In preparation for the Holy Day offerings, please use the special Holy Day offering envelopes which were mailed to you. If you do not have an envelope, you may obtain one from an usher before services. All checks should be payable to the United Church of God. Please be sure your name, complete address, and amount of the offering are on the outside of the envelope.


Seating sections in the auditorium are similar to the past few years. We have adequate seating for everyone and we are keeping the number of reserved seats to a minimum. Please find comfortable seating in the open seating areas and respect any reserved areas. Thank you for your cooperation. Please do not take food or beverages into the auditorium.  Fragrance free seating will be available in the balcony. Please ask an usher for directions to the balcony entrance.

Generally, there should not be a need to arrive before 9 AM to save seating. Unless you have official duties in the auditorium, please remain in the lobby or outside until the auditorium is open around 9 AM.

Please plan to keep our voices very low in the lobby prior to services, as we are conducting teen and youth classes upstairs in the Mezzanine.

After services we need to vacate the facility by 1:30 PM. On Holy Day afternoons, we need to vacate the facility by 5:30 PM.

Your assistance is requested to look around your seating area before leaving for any personal belongings and also please pick up any litter in your area.


God intends the Feast to be a time of spiritual and physical rejoicing.  Although we all have the opportunity for a spiritually rewarding Festival, we would like to make it possible for everyone to enjoy Feast-time physical activities.  If you have extra second tithe, perhaps you might consider making a donation in order to help other brethren and families participate in our group activities including Family Day, the Senior’s Luncheon or teen activities.

A box for donations will be located at the Information Booth. Also, if you need a little help so as to attend the above activities, please contact Joe Dobson or Devin Schulz, so we can help make such arrangements.

This “Family Helping Family” program is being sponsored at all U.S. and Canadian Feast sites.
