Fall Holy Days 2023
Feast of Trumpets
Join us for a special worship service to commemorate the Feast of Trumpets Saturday, September 16, 2023 at 10:30 am. The Feast of Trumpets is a holy day in which no customary work is to be done. This time of year marks the time when the great summer harvest is being gathered in and God brings His people together to celebrate His fall feasts. A celebration to commemorate Jesus returning as King and Judge of the Earth.
Day of Atonement
Join us for a special worship service for the Day of Atonement Monday, September 25, 2023 at 10:30 am.
In the scriptures, we find that the phrase "afflict your souls" means to fast, to abstain from eating, and also possibly drinking, in order to humble ourselves before God. This humbling of ourselves is tied to the work of reconciliation and atonement found in this feast day. We are to be celebrating that Jesus does this work in our lives, and how much we need it and appreciate it!
The Day of Atonement is such a powerful day, a day of humbling ourselves before God, choosing Him over the things of our flesh and this world. It is a day that celebrates the work of Jesus Christ as our High Priest, who cleanses us from all iniquity and removes our sins far from us.
Feast of Tabernacles/8th Day
Join us as we celebrate and worship God for 8 days from Saturday, September 30 to Saturday, October 7, 2023 for the Feast of Tabernacles. A celebration of the Great Last Harvest that Jesus brings to our Father and the completion of God's plan on earth to bring many sons to glory.
The Feast of Tabernacles is the last great feast in the year. The LORD gives two main instructions about the meaning of this seven-day feast. First, it is to be celebrated when you have gathered in your harvest from the land. Fall is the time of the great harvest of the year, when all the produce of the field is harvested. Second, it is a time to remember that God made His children to dwell in booths (temporary dwellings) after He freed them from bondage.
It is in these instructions that we find much spiritual meaning for which to gather and celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles as believers in Jesus.
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord.
