Feast of Tabernacles 2017 - Registration



IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • If you do not plan to spend the night at the campground, please fill out our Day Visitor Registration form instead. To ensure security, all visitors to the campground must register.
     

  • All payments and reservations for your campsite, meals and activities are done through this web site or by calling the ministry at 1-866-435-4924. Do not contact the campground to make your payment or reserve your campsite since it will all be handled through EliYah.com. However, if you have any specific questions about their accommodations, you can call them at 1-800-367-8945.
     

  • After you complete this form, you will need to reserve your accommodations at http://www.eliyah.com/securessl/camping/. There, you will choose your camping/lodging option, pre-order any meals and sign up for the float trip and/or horseback riding.
     

  • You must prepay your site to get the guaranteed rate of $5 per night per person 13 and older. If you wait until you arrive, the price may increase.
     

  • Check-in time is 1:00PM and check-out time is 11:00AM. 
     

  • This form is a bit long but since we are spending 10 days together it helps to ensure all things are done decently and in order (1Cor. 14:40). You will be given an opportunity to change the activities you sign up for upon arrival and check-in.

SHUTTLE SERVICE

If you are planning to arrive by bus, train or plane and will need someone to pick you up at a terminal in St. Louis, a shuttle service is available.

HOWEVER, this year we are requiring everyone who needs shuttle service to arrive ONE DAY EARLY. This means that shuttle service will offered at 1-3pm on October 4th and then again at 8-10am on the October 15th.

We are requiring this because we have found it is too hectic and stressful to pick everyone at the airport, stop at the store on the way in, and still set up everything before sundown.

We will not be able to pick anyone up or drop anyone off at any other times so plan your travel accommodations accordingly.

Will you be needing the shuttle service?

If yes, supply arrival/departure information, flight number etc. If you don't have it, write "To be Determined":

Activity

Hebrew Class - Daily lessons on the basic Hebrew Alphabet and vowel points. Teaches you to how read and pronounce the Hebrew letters so that you can read the Hebrew language. Attend every class OR pass the final exam to get a free book on Hebrew grammar! Children encouraged to participate!

 

Men's Meeting - Men get together and learn from one another on how to be better husbands/fathers, and encouragement in overcoming the challenges we have at work and home. Often the highlight of the feast for many! A great time of fellowship and developing friendships in Messiah. Mature teens may attend if parents approve.

 

Daughters of the Light - Ladies will get together and learn from each other on how to be better wives, mothers or singles. Bring a dish along with your favorite tea, sweetener and teacups. Bring cookies to share if you like. Mature teens may attend if parents approve.

Build the Wilderness Tabernacle - A replica of Yahweh's tabernacle in the wilderness will be built on the 3rd day of the feast. Children and teens welcome to be a part of this project. Check the box if you have skills in carpentry  electrical

Shofar Making  - Learn to drill & sand down your own authentic Kudu horn, then bring it home! Limited to one free Shofar per immediate family. Larger shofars (up to 39" will be available this year through the reservation system. Children encouraged to participate!

Tassel Making class - Learn how to make Tassels (Tsit tsit) per the command in Numbers 15:38 and Deut. 22:12. Children encouraged to participate!

 

Singles Class & Activity - Offered for unmarried teens and adults. For some, the feasts are the only time of year that unmarried believers of our faith can get to know each other. We'll be sharing a teaching on purity, the biblical method of finding a spouse, and doing a group activity to help break the ice and learn what each of us are expecting in a marriage partner.

 

 

Scripture Treasure Hunt - The scriptures themselves will provide the clues, and a brief teaching will be provided at each stop. Bring your bibles, it's sure to be an adventure!

Special children's activities - During the meetings, children will be given something to do with their hands such as coloring or some scripture related activity.
 

Ministry to the Fatherless - If there is a child or teen with you who does not have an active father in their life, we want to minister to them. We will quietly gather some men together to spend quality time with fatherless children and teens in a group setting. If you sign up, there will be a special note in your welcome packet where the date, time and location is listed.

 

Midnight Midrash for teens - Teens gather in separate groups of girls and guys to discuss today's issues facing the youth. 10PM to Midnight. Parents expected and encouraged to participate!

Youth and Family Night - One of the meetings will be an opportunity for the youth to share music and a special group event. Last year, the young people were a great encouragement to all of us. We look forward to seeing Yahweh work again this year.

# of items you plan to bring:

Auction for Charity / Ministry - We have a plan for speeding up the auction this year. Bring some good quality items that you would like to auction off and the proceeds will go toward the alms fund or the ministry of Eliyah.com (you specify).

 

Midrash at the Tabernacle or Pavilion

Due to the heat, we were unable to do this last year but this year we intend to move this activity out of the tabernacle. At the pavilion or conference hall, we will be having an open scripture discussion (Midrash) on most afternoons, but it will be scheduled at the same time of other afternoon events. Scripture Q & A, reading and discussion of various scriptures/topics, group counseling, or whatever else Yahweh leads.

If you plan to attend, please sign up here

Activity

Oct. 11th Group Float Trip -Canoes, kayaks and rafts available. No fee if you have your own raft and transportation. Always a great time to join other believers and take in the beautiful Ozark scenery. You are required to purchase your canoe/raft/kayak through the reservation system no later than the day before the float trip (October 10th). If you wait until the same day, you will not be able to join us.

11 yrs
& older

10 yrs & Younger

Horseback Riding - The horses actually live at the campground. This 45 minute event will be scheduled at the same time as morning activities so you may miss a Hebrew class or Torah reading. Children 10 and younger will go on a separate ride with an adult and lead rope. Weight limit: 240lb. You will purchase your trip through the reservation system, but you contact the campground to schedule your ride.

 

VOLUNTEERS
"..he who is greatest among you shall be your servant" (Matt. 23:11)

NOTE: Yahweh expects everyone to come with an attitude of serving and edifying others. With rare exception, no one should leave all the below fields blank. Find the joy in serving and you may just discover gifts you didn't know you had.

Watchmen on the Walls


During the night we have at least 2 men quietly praying together and watching over the camp during 3 hour shifts (watches).
This is also a great way to get to know another brother in Messiah. Many friendships between brothers have started here!

Note: If a shift isn't available on a particular night, it means that we have enough volunteers for that particular shift/night.

Rules & Guidelines

The rules below are simply common sense guidelines to help everyone enjoy the festival without distractions and problems.

We haven't had any major problems in the past, and we just want to keep it that way. Please indicate your agreement by clicking the "We agree" checkbox. If you have any questions about them, feel free to contact me.

 
*
 Attendees must firmly believe in the inspiration of scripture (Genesis to Revelation), and believe the Sabbath day is on the 7th day of the week, commonly called 'saturday'. However, if you normally attend a congregation on the 1st day of the week, commonly called 'sunday', you are welcome to join in and learn about the blessing of the Feast of Tabernacles.

* There is a Dress Code requiring modest apparel for both men and women. Please do not bring see-through clothing, clothes which draw attention to, or reveal the shape of, the private parts of the body such as low necklines and tight fitting garments. Shorts, skirts and dresses should not expose the knees when sitting down. If you wear pants (whether male or female), please wear a loose long shirt (or skirt/dress) to cover the area between the waist and thighs. See this picture for an example (Popup window).

Thanks for your understanding; we want those who have weaknesses to enjoy the feast without having to constantly engage in spiritual battle. If you can't afford long, loose shirts, let me know and we will provide some for you at no cost.

* Pets are permitted as long as they are leashed and supervised at all times.

* Alcoholic beverages are not permitted. The campground is a tobacco-free environment.

* Parents are held accountable for their children and teens. Children in the play areas and elsewhere must be supervised.

* Quiet time is enforced after 11pm local time. If you bring a dog, you will be held responsible for any barking that occurs.

* In the interest of purity, unmarried males/females should refrain from physical affection, and from going together to private locations, away from public view.
