Set up for Schluchsee Feast site

Filed under UCG-Germany

Today was the day for setting up the hall in Schluchsee where we will have the Feast of Tabernacles 2008.

Most Christians have no idea what the Feast of Tabernacles is, Schluchsee Feast site but Jesus, His apostles and the first Christians all kept this biblical Feast. So do we in the United Church of God. This year is the 10th time we are keeping the Feast in Schluchsee in the southern Black Forest. Today we prepared the hall. An early crew arrived yesterday, and today we set up the translation system for our international guests, decorated the stage area with three beautiful floral arrangements, put up various posters and put out some of our free literature for visitors to take if they are interested. Services are held in the main hall of the "Kurhaus Schluchsee" right in the middle of town. The town is fairly small and compact so nearly everyone can walk to services. The opening service is this evening at 7:30 p.m., and we expect about 250 people to attend the eight-day festival. Of those, some 60 percent will be German-speaking, and the others will be English-speaking, so we offer a simultaneous translation every day. If everyone shows up, it will be the largest group that UCG-Germany has hosted for the biblical Feast of Tabernacles in Germany.
