2015 Feast of Tabernacles Report

Panama City Beach, Florida, United States

More than 1,200 Feast of Tabernacles attendees enjoyed outstanding spiritual food as well as great weather, picturesque sunsets and an incomparable sugar-sand beach during the 2015 Feast in Panama City Beach, Florida. The days were comfortably warm; the nights pleasantly cool. More importantly, the daily messages were uplifting and encouraging, focusing on the coming Kingdom of God.

This special Feast site is perfect for families since a lot of activities are available on site, including an incomparable beach that stretches on for miles, caressed by endless blue green waters. Other readily-available family activities included on-sight tennis and basketball courts, a nine-hole golf course, a modern fitness club and 11 swimming pools.

Registration was over 1,000, yet our high attendance was 1,234 and, unofficially, it stayed very close to 1,200 over eight days. Harmony and peace were palpable and pervasive throughout the Feast.

The messages were well structured, well researched, and delivered in understandable, heartfelt ways that closely identified with the brethren’s needs. The positive seminar “Win With Your Strengths” helped brethren to focus on their God-given talents and strengths.

All family-oriented activities were well-attended, including family day at Rock-it! Lanes, the family dance and the teen dance. The Australian Card Program netted $1,812. The children’s choir was a delight to see and hear. And finally, the seniors luncheon at Captain Jack’s was a Feast highlight.

The Feast of Tabernacles at Panama City Beach is a great family Feast site, and its tropical setting helps to portray, in part, a future Garden of Eden environment.
