More than 400 members of the Living Church of God are attending their church’s annual Feast of Tabernacles at the Ramada Inn and Suites in Glenwood Springs, which began on Wednesday evening, Oct. 12, and will run through Thursday, Oct. 20.

Minister Rodger Bardo, festival coordinator for the Charlotte, N.C.-based church, explains that members will take part in daily worship services, family-oriented gatherings and social activities that will bring them to many of the Glenwood Springs area’s recreational facilities, restaurants and natural attractions.

Though many are familiar with the Feast of Tabernacles by its Hebrew name, Sukkot, Living Church of God members keep the Feast as a Christian observance, following the example of Jesus Christ and the early Christian church. Along with observing the “annual Sabbaths” God revealed in Leviticus 23, members also adhere to the weekly seventh-day Sabbath.
