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.
