FEAST OF TABERNACLES 2016 Pinellas Park, in Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida

We are very pleased to announce that the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center, at 4951 78th Ave. North, in Pinellas Park, will again be the location of eight days of services dedicated to praising God and enjoying the education and fellowship opportunities with God's people that comes with observing the Feast of Tabernacles during the days of October 17–24 this year. 

The Church of God International, in cooperation with the Church of God Miami, and the Church of the Sovereign God, will again co-sponsor this wonderful event for the edification and enjoyment of all those who choose to come and visit the variety of shops and entertainment facilities in conjunction with the gorgeous beaches, where so many ocean front accommodations are available for your enjoyment and relaxation.

Over the years, this Feast site has become known for providing a wide scope of activities that will include sermons (that are “web-cast” in real time every day, including 2 combined Bible studies with our Australian brethren half way around the world), seminars, Bible studies, Sabbath school for the young, and teen classes designed for them. A variety of special music will be planned, so if you have some talent, don’t “sit on it”; come on down and share it with the rest of your brethren!

There is also a broad range of things to do, including boating, deep-sea fishing, putt-putt golf, and “real golf,” too—even bowling and softball can be arranged. Additionally, a BBQ party, volleyball, and a family dinner dance is planned, along with many more things to do. And we haven’t even mentioned the large selection of restaurants that offer a wide range of superb“eateries.” From the “beach-bum food shacks” to the 4- and 5-star dinning classics—they’re all here, at the Tampa/St. Pete, Florida Feast site!

Accommodations are available throughout the area. from condos to hotel rooms and suites. They are located inland or on the beach and can accommodate even the most fastidious tastes. The Holiday Inn Harbourside will again have discounts rates available for standard rooms and suites, but not until sometime after June. More information will be forthcoming on that.
