Family Dinner Dance Tickets on Sale Now!

One of the activities we are planning for this year’s Feast in Wisconsin Dells is a Family Dinner and Dance on Monday evening, October 13. This activity will be at the same location as last year, the beautiful Glacier Canyon Lodge Conference Center. This dinner and dance will provide you with an evening of great fun, food, fellowship and relaxation with your spiritual family. Seniors, this activity will replace the seniors luncheon we have had in year’s past and include all of you in with our larger Feast family! Dress for the evening is dressy casual.

You may begin fellowshipping from 4:00-5:00 with the dinner beginning at 5:00 and running until 6:30. The buffet dinner menu will include sliced roast beef served with a mushroom beef demi, pasta primavera with steamed vegetables, green salad, garlic mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, coffee, iced tea, and milk. Dessert as well as snacks will be provided throughout the balance of the evening after dinner has concluded and will include such items as cheese and fruit platters with crackers, fresh baked cookies, brownies, potato chips, pretzels, and party mix. A special treat is an ice cream sundae station that will be made available at 9:00! During most of the evening there will be a cash bar and unlimited free soda.

From 6:30 until 10:00 we will be providing a wide range of  music for you by our own DJ, Dan Lausted. Dan will be playing music from many different eras for your enjoyment. So get out on that dance floor and dance to your heart’s content! Dan will do his best to ensure that the music volume will be low enough to allow for conversations at the tables throughout the room.

One admission price will get you all of this and you will be provided a wristband to allow you to come and go as you please. Costs for the event are $22 for adults (ages 11-64), $17 for seniors (age 65+), and $14 for children (ages 2-10). There is no charge for children two and under who may eat from their parent’s plates. Should you desire to come to the dance only your admission is $10 per individual and $30 per family. These costs are significantly reduced from the actual costs in the hopes that everyone who wants to come will be able to. We welcome donations to help cover the costs and to help others attend.

We have a limit of 350 people for the buffet, so reserve your seat now by filling out the attached form and sending that in with your check or money order so that it is received by me no later than September 29. Please contact me for your ticket order form at randymary080104@comcast.net. Randy D'Alessandro, Wisconsin Dells Festival Coordinator

Greetings once again,

We're now 6 weeks away from the beginning of the Feast and we hope you're preparing for it. I want to update you on additional housing that's offered by Edgewater. They now have another property just east of the Majestic Condos called the Grand View. In the Grand View there are 3-bedroom condos (two baths) available for those who wanted a 3-bedroom condo in one of the three towers run by Edgewater but perhaps could'nt acquire one. The cost is a little less than a deluxe 3-bedroom condo at Edgewater. My wife and I previewed them and the two that we looked at were well appointed. The Grand View condos overlook the ocean immediately and directly and you would enjoy an impressive and extensive view west or east along the coastline. These just opened up and there are 19 of them available for UCG.

All the best for a great and joyous Feast of Tabernacles to you all,

Jerold W. Aust

Feast Coordinator, PCB

Update for: USA Oceanside, California

Opportunity to serve at Oceanside Feast of Tabernacles
We are asking for help on Parking Lot Teams at the Feast in Oceanside.
We are looking for as many volunteers as possible to help in directing traffic in the various parking lots.

The service commitment requires you to be at QLN Conference center 1 ½ hours prior beginning of services.

The goal is to get enough volunteers so that we can limit the amount of days one would need to serve to 3 or 4 maximum. We are encouraging our teens and young adults to step forward also to help in this area.

This is an important Team service that helps everyone that attends.

Interested on being on the Parking Team? Please contact Perry Weis
Phone or text to: 310-629-0897 / email to perryweis@gmail.com

Update for: USA Panama City Beach, Florida

Greetings to all Panama Beach Feastgoers, 

The Feast is now only two months away and it will be on us before we know it. Now is the time to begin preparing for the Feast. In Panama City Beach, we now have over 1,000 + members registered and history shows us that we will have more who visit us during the Feast of Tabernacles. This year marks my 53rd Feast of Tabernacles; my wife Mary Ann has attended over 60 Feasts of Tabernacles (although she is younger than I). Our plan is to help you have your best Feast ever so you can help others have their best Feast ever.

Everything is progressing well in planning for the Feast in Panama City Beach, although we still have some important things to accomplish. We are planning for the best messages and music during the 2014 Feast and with God's help, we will. Please pray for the success of the Feast brethren and always remember that we are commanded to come to the Feast to rejoice with God and His saints. Rejoice is the key word here and we have much to rejoice about.

Thank you in advance for choosing to enjoy the Feast at Panama City Beach and remember to pray as well for all of the department heads and their assistants, for without their service, the Feast couldn't come together. Thanks in advance for all of you who will serve at the Feast. For those who are handicapped and need close parking, please see me early on and pick up a special parking pass. For those who plan on playing in our golf tournament, we have better news! Because of a mixup in the Holiday Golf Course scheduling, we now have a new and better entry fee of $20 per golfer, not $35! Register for this tournament at jwaust@comcast.net and include your name, phone number and email address by September 12th. Payment is due by September 19th (the address for payment will be forwarded to you after September 12th).  

Sincerely in Christ's Service,

Jerold W. Aust, Feast Coordinator, Panama City Beach, Florida 2014

Special Seminar: Tuesday, October 14 at 7:30PM - "Youth Development"

The building blocks of healthy adolescent development are also known as developmental assets.  The more developmental assets a child identifies as having, the more likely they will grow into healthy, caring and responsible adults.  We will explore 40 identified developmental assets and discuss how they may be developed within our children. We will look at how parents, neighbors, relatives and a church congregation can be an important part in the development of a child.  Everyone has a role!  Come and hear what you can do.

This seminar will be given by Dr. Keith Tomes. Dr. Tomes has been in public education for 23 years.  He has served as a teacher, principal and for the last six years as superintendent of two different public school districts in California.  Dr. Tomes is a graduate of Ambassador University (1988), received his M.A. from California State Univ. Los Angeles in 1994 and his Ed.D. from the University of Southern California in 2005.  Keith is an elder in the Bakersfield, CA church where he and his wife Christy (Novak) attend.  They have five children: Chris (21), Kyle (19), Stephanie (17), Caleb (14), and Julia (12).

Special Seminar: Wednesday, October 15th at 3pm - "How to Recover From the Ravages of Abuse"

Abuse comes in different forms, including verbal abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse and emotional abuse.  Satan the Devil is the originator of abuse, and its pain, suffering and devastation are his handiwork. Abuse is very prevalent in our society today as a social disease, since it affects not only the one abused, but also his surrounding social environment such as family, marriage and work. The road to healing from abuse is long, hard and challenging. This seminar will give information on how to recover from abuse.  We will also have an interactive discussion about how you and I can help other people who are progressing through the stages of recovery from the abuse they have experienced. The coming Millennium pictures the return of our Messiah to bring about fantastic healing from all types of abuse! Come to the seminar and join our discussion about the subject of abuse – and about opportunities that you and I may be given to assist Jesus Christ as He brings about huge changes.

The seminar will be conducted by John Cafourek. John was born in South Dakota. He attended Ambassador College in Pasadena, California, from 1965 to 1969, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He received a Master’s Degree in psychological counseling from Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in 1978. Mr. Cafourek has pastored churches in Nebraska, North Dakota, Missouri, Mississippi, Washington, and Oregon. He is currently serving as pastor of the Salem, Eugene, and Roseburg congregations. He has given seminars on abuse and addictions, and traveled as an international speaker in Canada, England, New Zealand, Jamaica, and Australia. Mr. Cafourek has been married to his wife Sandy for 44 years, and they have two daughters and seven grandchildren with one on the way.
