2022 Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day

Monday, October 10, through Monday, October 17

Dear Brethren,

Here is the information packet for the 2022 Feast of Tabernacles. Listed below are the major CBCG Feast sites. In addition to these, there will be many smaller sites scattered across the U.S. 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 (last page) 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

The beauty and splendor of Vermont’s autumn foliage is spectacular.

Everywhere you go you are surrounded by the beauty of Vermont’s mountains, lakes, and sprawling farmlands. The area features a variety of historic sites, museums, and hiking trails. The ferry rides on Lake Champlain are especially popular. Vermont is also noted for its many Farm-to-Table restaurants.
