Located just 11 miles from the west entrance to Glacier National Park, the fall beauty of God’s creation of majestic mountains, rivers and diverse wildlife provided an inspiring backdrop for worshipping our Creator in peace and harmony.
The auditorium at the new venue, appropriately called the Tabernacle, built with huge beams and natural woods, created an ambiance that promoted both our worship services and long periods of fellowship before and after services. Extended fellowship and visiting was augmented by the delicious onsite meals served by the camp staff in the camp dining hall.
The affordable meals, coupled with many onsite housing options ranging from tent sites to full RV hook-ups to cabins to motel style rooms, makes the Montana Feast site affordable for nearly any budget. Many families “tabernacled” in large nearby vacation homes—often having a Feast reunion with family and extended family from all parts of the country gathered in one home.
The spiritual food was provided by a variety of pastors, elders and deacons from around the country, accentuated by a beautiful diversity of special music each day before the main message. The live Internet transmission of Sabbath services from Lake Junaluska was well received without any technical difficulties and displayed on the twin large screens. Two Bible studies for adults, as well as teen and young adult studies, and children youth instruction rounded out the spiritual diet.
The bowling party, senior luncheon, glacier day, ladies tea, family dance and fun filled family day were all well attended and enjoyed by all who participated. Especially inspiring was how God provided beautiful, sunny weather for the family day when it was forecast to be cold and snowy! Converging around the campfire in the campground in the evenings was also another form of fellowship enjoyed by many.
The attitude of service prevailed from start to finish of the Feast! Many volunteers from different parts of the country worked together to collectively make the Feast a time of edification and encouragement. The nourishing and helping of one another provided a real foretaste of what we envision all mankind will enjoy when Christ returns and sets up God’s Kingdom on earth!
