Feast Of Tabernacle
The Great Awakening International in conjunction with the family of Great Awakening Assemblies will be celebrating the Feast of the Tabernacles September 29 – October 8. Participants will have the opportunity to observe all 8 days, 4 days, or just 1-day commuter experiences. We observe the feast by not doing any servile work on the 1st or 8th day of the feast (no work) and having Holy Convocations in which we come together with worship service and feast for 8 days. The Family of Great Awakening Assemblies will be celebrating 8 days of the Feast of the Tabernacles together on the Lawhorn Scout Base in between two campgrounds; Flint River Adventure Area and Camp Thunder.
In Hebrew, the word for a single shelter is a sukkah—plural sukkot—so the holiday was called Sukkot in Hebrew. (Pronounced “sue-COTE”.)
Every year the Great Awakening International and its Assemblies get to stay outdoors with our families in temporary shelters (sukkot/sukkahs) and be reminded that all of life is temporary, but that you are heading toward the Promised Land.
