Feast of Tabernacles 2020 Advisory

For the vast majority of members, this has been the most challenging year to plan for the Feast of Tabernacles. The same is true for church administration which has considered many options, suggestions and recommendations for operating the Feast during this COVID-19 trial. All input has been considered and appreciated, knowing we all want what is best and to be led by God's Holy Spirit.

Each Feast site will abide by state and local regulations in arranging social gatherings--whether it be Church services, smaller Bible studies, luncheons or teen events, etc.

Please carefully read the arrangements at the site you will attend in terms of wearing masks and social distancing (some of that planning is not finalized). Be aware of interstate travel requirements for anybody leaving their state and returning home, too.

The Church advises all members to prayerfully consider their own individual situation and make decisions for yourself on whether to attend the Feast or any gathering at the Feast. It is a personal choice and the United Church of God is not pressuring anyone to attend the Feast and expose themselves to health risks.

The United Church of God recognizes your personal decision, and for those not attending live services there will be daily live webcast services from the central and mountain time zones.

    Very much appreciate the balanced approach during these unprecedented times, and may we all come through it more firmly rooted in the ways and promises of our Creator than when we entered into it!

    Yes! Like Randy above, I too, appreciate the balanced approach—especially several months ago when UCG said that those who go are no holier than those who cannot go and visa versa! May ALL who keep the Holy Days become closer to our Father and soon coming King!
