Our Schedule will look a little different over the next 5 weeks!!! Please SCHEDULE your appointments and make sure you get TEXT or EMAIL reminders, if your normal adjustment time is effected.
This Fall, we are celebrating the Feasts or Holidays listed in the Bible! These are holidays way older than any on our American Calendars; to find these holidays, you have to look into the Bible and to a Hebrew Calendar. This may be freaking some of you out already, but actually these holidays are some of the most fascinating and wonderful ways to get to know God and His purposes on earth even better. Surprisingly, most Christians don’t even know a whole lot about these Biblical days! So, if you care to learn, I’ll share some neat things about these Feasts that God set up for His people to REMEMBER Him and to REMEMBER His goodness. Exactly like the Spring feasts of Passover, First Fruits, Unleavened Bread and Shavuot (Pentecost) were fulfilled with the first coming of the Messiah (Jesus Christ), the Fall feasts really seem to point to the prophecies that will be fulfilled when He Returns!
Below are the days we’re CLOSED over the next 5 weeks, on the other side of this page, you will find a calendar that also lists dates and times we will be OPEN.
Monday, September 3 – Labor Day(The good, old fashioned American Holiday we all love)
Tuesday, September 11 – Feast of Trumpets (“Yom Teruah” in Hebrew, also known as the day of “sounding the shofar” or “blowing the trumpet”) found in Leviticus 23:23-25 and Numbers 29:1.This feast has been known through the ages as one you “don’t know the exact day or hour” because it’s announced on the new moon…some Bible students my recognize that phraseology…Look up Matthew 24:29-39, Matthew 25:13, Mark 13:28-37, Revelation 16:15, and 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11.
Thursday, September 20 – Day of Atonement(“Yom Kippur” in Hebrew, the one day in the year when the High Priest went behind the curtain in the Temple into the Holy of Holies) This day reminds us that the High Priest was only allowed 1 day per year to offer blood of sacrifices to atone for or redeem the peoples’ sin. We all have sinned and fallen short, but the glorious truth is that our sins can be forgiven and completely washed away by calling upon the name of Jesus! There is a day coming in the future, called Judgement Day, and if our sins are not covered we will have to answer. Praise God there is a way to stand free of sin and guilt by accepting forgiveness from God through Jesus! Leviticus 23:26-32, 1 John 4:10, Heb 10:1-16
Tuesday, September 25 & Tuesday, October 2 – Feast of Tabernacles (Days 1 & 8) (“Sukkot” in Hebrew meaning “booths”) This Feast is the great celebration lasting 8 days! It represents a time of renewed fellowship with God, remembering His sheltering provision and care for us whether we are in a desert-place or in a place of abundance, either way He is the source of all we need. It’s celebrated by feasting, rejoicing, giving thanks to God for His provision; it’s a time of celebrating the bringing in of the last harvest of the year. Leviticus 23:33-43, Deut 16:13, John 7:1-24, Zechariah 14:16-17
