Fall Harvest Festival



 Winterfest 2009

Winterfest has come and gone, but the effects will long live with the youth from Faith Tabernacle who attended, along with 20 - 25,000 other young folks from all over the region.  Only time will tell the long-lasting results of their experience in the presence of God as they recommitted themselves to their covenant to serve Him.

With the help of Youth Leaders, Ken and Karen Jacobs, they all worked hard to raise the funds necessary for all the expenses.  They sold candy, pizzas, had a chicken 'n dumplings dinner and accepted donations.  Because of their persistent efforts, they were able to stay at the Black Bear Ridge Resort between sessions of Winterfest.  Look below to view their nice surroundings in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  More pictures will be posted as they come in.

**Hey, Teens!  Do you have any pictures from Winterfest you want to share here?**

It appears that everyone has such a good time, they didn't have time to take pictures!

Youth Camp

Youth camp occurred the week of July 6-10.  They had classes, morning and evening church and lots of fun and activities.  Some pictures are below.  (light was poor in the tabernacle which accounts for the 'grainy' appearance of some).  It was a time of spiritual renewal and connecting again with friends of previous years.

Fall Harvest Festival

Youth leaders, Ken & Karen Jacobs combined all the age groups of our youth for an evening of fun and games for the Fall Harvest Festival.  They began with an indoor campfire service as Karen gave them a Bible lesson.  After prayer, the activities began.  There were various stations of games and activities manned by adult helpers.   The youth earned tickets at each station and collected them in a bag provided by the leaders; the tickets were used to "buy" treats and trinkets.

Pastor Jerry and Lorinda had a "fish pond" where, even without bait, they fishers caught a prize on their line.  They also took them on a hay ride by age groups; even some of the adults had a turn.

It was a night of lots of fun, eats and activities.  Pictures will be added below as they come in.

An overflow crowd attended the Christmas musical program conducted by Ken and Karen.  After the program, the participants, helpers and attendees were invited to the fellowship hall where food had been prepared.  The number of people outnumbered the tables and chairs, but everyone enjoyed the "after-show" time.
