Homer, Alaska

Site Summary

Join us in scenic Homer, Alaska on the shores of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet for a small Festival gathering.  Homer is a community nestled next to the ocean with scenic vista views of ocean, beaches, extreme tides, wildlife, glaciers, and snow capped mountains.  We can expect cool weather, with average temperatures between 25°F and 51°F.  Rain, wind, sunshine, frost and snow are all possible during the Alaska Seaside Feast in October.  

Locations and opportunities are available for fellowship, casual activities, games, discussion, Bible studies, and shared meals.  Weather permitting, we plan an on the water day when we will ride across the Bay to hike the Grewingk Glacier Lake Trail. Homer has a great variety of restaurants to choose from.  We look forward to having you join us seaside in Homer, Alaska.
 

Location and Style/Format of Services

All group meetings will take place at the Aspen Suites Hotel  in the meeting hall located on the right side of the building when driving into the parking lot.  We want to create an atmosphere of community and fellowship to truly enjoy our time together.  In scripture we are instructed to bring an offering to the festivals, and we hope you come prepared to share ideas, testimonies and blessings, Bible Study facts and inspirations, special music, prayers, dances, Feast treats, willing hands to help as well as watchful eyes and alert spirits. 
 
Official Feast meetings to begin with shofar blowing, praise, worship and dance, followed by presentations. All presentations are interactive, with everyone invited to respectfully participate.  All speakers will be expected to answer questions about their presentation.
