Feast of Tabernacles 2015
Utica, Illinois - September 28-October 4, 2015
Nestled in the wooded natural beauty of Grizzly Jack's Grand Bear Lodge, The Active Bible Church of God will again observe God's Feast of Tabernacles here at Grizzly Jack's!. Located along I-80, Grizzly Jack's is only 88 minutes from downtown Chicago. Yet, it offers all of the peace, tranquility, and natural beauty of the Starved Rock State Park in this lovely setting, contrasting a rustic ambience with all of the expected modern amenities in the cabins, suites, and villas, along with a few extras.
We are a small group, thus this is a small intimate Feast site. But we have a strong belief in going all out to make God's Feast an uplifting, spirit-filled, positive foretaste of the Feast to come in God's Kingdom. As it should be, we plan the feast in such a way that it is the spiritual highlight of your year!!
All Worship services will be held in the Grand Bear Room of the Grand Bear Lodge. We have traditional services consisting of an opening prayer and congregational hymn singing , daily announcements, special music performed by Festival participants (Please let us know what your talents are and what you would like to play or sing during the services), and, at the center of all services, is a Scripture-based sermon designed to uplift teach, and encourage. Interactive Bible studies are planned, and some of these will be held in the cabins during the evenings. Our schedule is full, but not so full that you will have no time to relax or explore the Utica area on your own or in groups.
For your comfort and convenience, you can stay at the Grand Bear Lodge or in one of their comfortable, fully equipped villas or cabins. Your accommodations include free access to the (indoor) water park and amusement park. Call 866-399-3866 or locally call 815-667-3866. When calling the Grand Bear Lodge, tell them that you are coming for the Active Bible Church of God Feast of Tabernacles, your discount will then be applied.

Registration and Contact Information
