Special Notice: Because of fraud and asking for money last year when we had the phone numbers and emails included in the Letter, we have deleted them in this online listing. If anyone needs the information, call the office at: 831-637-1875.

Dear Brethren,

Here is the information packet for the Feast of Tabernacles 2014. Listed below are the major feast sites.  In addition to these, there will be many other smaller feast sites scattered across the USA and around the world.  Please carefully follow the instructions. 

Please be sure to return the Feast Information Sheet as soon as possible

Each one is responsible to make his or her own reservations. In all locations, please mention that you are with the Christian Biblical Church of God, as in most cases we have been given special rates.  Remember that the Feasts of God are as important as the weekly Sabbath.  Moreover, through keeping them, year by year, we are able to learn and understand more about God's plan as revealed in the Bible.  As we do every year, we pray that this Feast will be the best ever for you and your family.

General Feast Information:

We need your help.  Over the years it has been our policy to let people go where ever they wanted and change their mind as often as they like.  Some even wait until a few days before opening night of the Feast before making housing reservations, however such late decisions make planning most difficult.  Please let us know where you will attend as soon as possible, so we can fulfill our contractual obligations of guaranteed minimums.

Western Canada

I am pleased to inform you that we have once again secured the feast site this year at Invermere, B.C. for all the brethren to consider attending.  Unfortunately we were not able to negotiate and / or find an alternative suitable new site as we did check out various
different locations but to no avail. 

The dates for the feast this year (2014) are from Wednesday, October 8 / 2014 (evening) through October 16, 2014.

The western Canadian Feast site for CBCG will be once again held at the Copper Point Resort in Invermere, B.C.  Invermere is located in the Columbia Valley, nestled between the Rocky Mountains to the east and the Purcell range to the west.  The Columbia valley lies in the southeast corner of the province of British Columbia, Canada.  Just a scenic 2 ½ hour to 3 hour drive from Calgary, Alberta, the valley is convenient to the US border and easily accessible from Canadian Rockies International Airport at Cranbrook, B.C. With an abundance of sunshine year round, the valley is an all-season, second to none destination for vacationers from all over the world.  They come for the clear, sparkling lakes, some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world, hiking trails, ski resorts, championship golf courses, hot springs, unique shops and cultural festivals. 

Surrounded by stunning views of the Columbia valley, Copper Point Resort is the quintessential of upscale, casual resort experiences.  Designed to accommodate adventure and relaxation, the sophistication of Copper Point Resort embraces you with urban excellence in each vacation style condo from nine foot ceilings to gourmet kitchens, opulent 1, 2, 3 bedroom suites, fireplace plus spacious balconies and patios perfect for bbq.  You can spend a day at the on site spa, the golf course adjacent to the property, the outdoor / indoor pool or linger over a decadent meal at the Elements grill. 

There is a spacious and beautiful meeting room and is a perfect setting for the Feast of Tabernacles to be held.                                                             

We have secured a block of rooms and the negotiated pricing as outlined below for your consideration:  Please note that this facility is rated as a four star facility and the management has been very cooperative and excited to host and make this feast as
enjoyable as possible.  They have maintained the same rates as last year.

Both Denise and I are very excited to once again host the feast site at this facility and hope to see many of you again and we certainly welcome any new brethren from the U.S. and other parts of Canada to join us at this wonderful festival location.  Our site and surrounding area presents many activities and options for all individuals to partake in. 

Remember brethren,  that the Feasts of God are so important for us to keep and with the many things happening out there in this world today and seeing the state of the society around us, we should be making all efforts to keep these feasts as best as we can.  The feasts outline the plan of God and we are an important part of that plan.  Both Denise and I pray that this feast will be available for many of you to attend.

Eastern Canada

Our eastern Canadian site for the 2014 Feast of Tabernacles will once again be Gananoque, Ontario, in the heart of Thousand Islands region on the St Lawrence River.  This year the venue will be the beautiful Colonial Inn & Spa, a full-service resort, which is located at the West end of the town.  This spacious property graced with grass, trees, a tennis court, and two swimming pools, offers us a meeting room big enough to hold up to 60 people.  They may still have rooms available at $55-119 per night; but because they cater to busloads of people for the fall foliage season, they were unable to guarantee room availbility(for the dates of our Feast) past June 1 this year.  They MAY still have rooms available; but to check on the availability at the Colonial In itself, non-Canadians interested in possibly attending at Gananoque should call 1-800-267-9497 as soon as possible.  There are of course many other hotels in Gananoque.  Below is a list of the main ones to check:

We look forward to seeing many brethren at Gananoque this fall.

As we have grown in recent years, we have increased the number of feast sites.  Every year we have sites closer and closer to where the brethren live.  This way it is more convenient for you to travel in order to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.  May God bless you in every way, so this feast will the best ever for you.
