Servants' News invites you to the Feast
PERRY, Mich.--Servants' News, the newsletter published by Norman Edwards and friends, plans a Feast site this fall at Port Austin, Mich., and you're invited.
"We believe the arrangements at Port Austin Center will provide wonderful opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy and learn from the Feast of Tabernacles 2000," said Mr. Edwards.
Port Austin Center is a former Air Force base that serves as a campus for a nondenominational "college in the making," he said. Servants' News will rent the site for the Feast.
The facility will lend itself to a "big happy family" Feast, he said. Feastgoers can eat nearly all their meals together and live within walking distance of each other. It also will provide a dormitory atmosphere of a summer camp for teens and singles.
The dates are "the traditional Jewish-calendar dates," which this year fall Oct. 13-21.
Port Austin, on Highway M-53 at the tip of the "thumb" of Michigan, "is not on the way to anywhere," he said, "but that is what helps to make it so uncrowded and unspoiled."
Formats for services will include Bible readings, short messages, prayer, discussion, a variety of music and children's classes.
The center boasts facilities for volleyball, baseball, soccer, bowling, golf and other sports and includes lights for evening activities. Nearby are lake beaches, canoe rentals, fishing, horseback riding and skating.
Per-person rates for nine days range from $90 to $149.
Each floor of four two-story dormitory buildings has 20 beds and a large common bathroom. One building will be for men, the other for women. "We will make sure that there is a responsible adult on each floor among the teens," said Mr. Edwards. "A large extended family or other group may reserve a dorm floor for themselves."
Suites are also available, along with nearby motels and hotels and camping facilities.
