2018 Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day
Feast Sites

Monday, September 24, through Monday, October 1

Printable Feast Sites 2018 Letter with reservation form - PDF

[NOTE: Feast Sites Letter will be mailed out this week.]

Dear Brethren,

Here is the information packet for the 2018 Feast of Tabernacles. Listed below are the major Feast sites. In addition to these, there will be many smaller sites scattered across the USA. As we have grown in recent years, we have increased the number of Feast sites. Every year we have sites closer and closer to where the brethren live—so that travel to the Feast is more convenient.

Please carefully follow the packet instructions. Each person is responsible for making his or her own reservations. In all locations, please mention that you are with the Christian Biblical Church of God, because in most cases we have been given special rates.

We need your help: Over the years it has been our policy to let people attend the Feast wherever they desired—and to change their minds as need be. Some even wait until a few days before the opening night of the Feast before making housing reservations. However, such late decisions make planning most difficult. Please let us know where you will attend as soon as possible so we can fulfill our contractual obligations of guaranteed minimums.

Please be sure to return the Feast Information Form (Printable PDF) as soon as possible.

Remember that the Feasts of God are as important as the weekly Sabbath. Through keeping them year by year, we are able to learn and understand more about God's plan as revealed in the Bible. May God bless you in every way and make this year's Feast the best ever for you and your family!

With love in Christ Jesus,

Fred R. Coulter

We are pleased to announce that the Wingate by Wyndham will host the Christian Biblical Church of God Feast of Tabernacles for 2018.

Lake George  is a new Feast site which is located in the beautiful Adirondack mountains of NY.  Lake George has been nicknamed the Queen of American Lakes and is a long, narrow lake located at the southeast base of the Adirondack Mountains.  It has no rival in this country for beauty and historical associations.  In the fall, the foilage changes the mountains' colors from green into deep oranges and burning reds. Lake George is known in large part not only for its scenic roadways, but also for its recreational facilities, beauty of the mountains, lakes, and streams as well as lodging, dining and affordability.

Discover family activities and many things to do at Lake George: 

Horseback riding, Zip lining,  Hiking trails, Parasailing, Kayaking, Steam Boat rides on Lake George, Six Flags Great Escape theme park, 14 Mile Biking Trail and Historical museums. Fort William Henry is there to visit as well. Lake George is close enough to travel to Lake Placid, Fort Ticonderoga and Ausable Chasm.

We have reserved a block of rooms where services will be held for those who would like to stay at the Wingate. When making reservations there, tell them that you are with the CBCG conference. The  room rate is $99.99/day + tax for the full eight days, and reservations must be made by August 20th. In addition, there is a large selection of  home rentals, cottages, motels or campgrounds in the Lake George area.  You may go on line to: https://www.tripadvisor.com/https://www.vrbo.com/ or http://www.lakegeorgechamber.com/lodging/ to find additional housing. 

Opening night services will be held on Sunday evening, September 23rd at 7:30 PM.  

The Holy Day service for Monday, September 24th, will begin at 10:30 PMService times for the remainder of the Feast will be at 10 AM. .

Greetings from Malaysia! We will have a Feast site again this year in Penang.

Penang Island, the most populous island city in Malaysia, is in the state of Penang. With a population of 738,500, it is the second largest city in Malaysia (by population). Its capital, George Town, is one of the oldest cities in Malaysia and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2008.

Logistically, Penang Island is well-connected. The Penang International Airport is one of the busiest in Malaysia, with links to major regional cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Bangkok, Taipei, and Hong Kong. The port of Penang serves as the main harbor for northern Malaysia, with connections to over 200 ports worldwide. Penang Island is connected to the rest of Malaysia by the Penang Bridge and ferry service.

Long regarded as the food capital of Malaysia, Penang Island is renowned for its varied street food blending Malay, Chinese, Indian, Thai, and European influences. In fact, the Island was named as one of Asia's top street food cities by CNN, and Time acclaimed Penang as having the best street food in Asia.

Moama—Southern Australia

Rich River Golf Club • Twenty Four Lane, Moama

The 2018 Feast for southern Australia will be held in the town of Moama. Services will be at the Rich River Golf Club (www.richriver.com.au). A number of brethren will be staying at the Murray River Resort (www.murrayriverresort.com.au)—a three-minute drive to the Golf Club for services.

We are meeting each day for services at 10:30 AM, and on the holy days and Sabbath we will also have services in the afternoon. We generally have an activity in the afternoon in order to make the most of fellowship opportunities (such as a relaxing one-hour Paddle Steamer cruise down the mighty Murray River, an enjoyable picnic in the great Australian outdoors under the gum trees, and various other get-togethers). Before each holy day we will have an evening meal together—a lovely way to meet and greet the brethren on the first night (with a vineyard as the backdrop). For each of the holy days and the Sabbath we have lunch together at the Gold Club.

The average daytime temperature is usually about 74 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Echuca Moama Visitor Centre (www.echucamoama.com) provides information on alternate accommodations and other general info about the area. Costs vary greatly depending on the type of accommodation you desire.

Caloundra—Queensland Australia

Kawana Forest Meeting Place

60 Woodlands Blvd • Meridan Plains

Caloundra is located on the Sunshine Coast, north of Brisbane, about one and a half hours from the Brisbane Airport. This year we will be having the Feast at a new venue—Kawana Forest Meeting Place located at 60 Woodlands Blvd, Meridan Plains (opposite Pacific Lutheran College) (See https://sites.google.com/site/sunshine60andbetter/kawana-forest-meeting-place to view more information about the venue.) Parking is available both on-site (limited) and on the nearby streets. The venue is under 10 minutes northwest of Caloundra.

There is a variety of accommodation to choose from at Caloundra. However, given that the Feast falls partially during school holidays this year, accommodation will be in demand and will attract higher rates. Attendees should thus book their accommodation as early as possible.

The venue will open each day at 9:30 AM for early fellowshipping before the 10:30 AM services. The venue has been booked between 9:30 AM and 2:30 PM during the Feast. On opening night, the service will commence at 7:00 PM.

Tea and coffee will be provided each day free of charge. Lunch will be provided free on the first and last holy days, as well as on the Sabbath. For the remaining days of the Feast we will be having pot luck lunches.

To assist in planning, and especially for catering purposes, it is important for you to contact the Feast co-ordinator for the Caloundra site. Please contact Paul Siddle at + 61 7 55 306 888 or by e-mailing him at paulsid231@gmail.com.
