2015 Feast of Tabernacles Report

Branson, Missouri, United States

An average of 466 happy brethren attended the Feast in beautiful Branson, Missouri.

God’s blessings were evident throughout the festival. Inspiring sermons and uplifting special music were given on a daily basis.

The Friday night Bible study was presented by Anthony Wasilkoff, comparing the building of the Old Testament tabernacle with God’s Church today.

A special seminar was presented by Merna Eppick on the topic of addiction recovery.

The spirit of service was evident throughout the Feast. There were volunteers for youth instruction, ushering, special services, choir, special music, family day, as well as other areas. Dozens of personally made greeting cards signed by the attendees were sent to brethren who were not able to attend the Feast this year. Cards to prisoners were sent as well.

One of the highlights of the Feast was the giving away of stuffed animals to all of the children who attended the Feast. Each child walked to the stage area after services and took one stuffed animal home as a Feast present. Since there were many more stuffed animals the brethren purchased, the remainder of the animals will be given to local children’s shelters.
