We are excited about the High Holiday season coming up in October! We are preparing to celebrate God’s moadim (“appointed times”), particularly Rosh Hashanah (Biblically referred to as Yom Teruah, the Day of Trumpets), Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), and Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles). Each has great end time significance, teaching us of the great redemptive work of Yeshua the Messiah and pointing us to His Second Coming. We are assembling a full band for all 3 meetings and are anticipating a great time of worship together. Please remember that these events present significant opportunities to invite Jewish friends that might not ordinarily respond to other invitations!
All events will be held at:
Dane Street Church Fellowship Hall
10 Dane Street
Save the Dates:
Rosh Hashanah / the Day of Trumpets:
Sunday, October 2 @ 6 PM
Also known in the Hebrew Bible as "Yom Teruah" (Day of Trumpets), Rosh Hashanah (literally the "head of the year") is considered as the "spiritual" New Year. The purpose of this holy day may be summed up in one word - regathering. As we blow the shofar (ram's horn), this is the day when the people of God take stock of their spiritual condition, looking forward to the final trumpet blast, accompanied by the return of Messiah. Please bring a friend, and a snack to share. Check out this page for some authentic holiday recipes: http://www.food.com/recipes/rosh-hashana-desserts
Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement:
Tuesday, October 11 @ 7 PM
Considered the most holy day of the Biblical calendar, Yom Kippur (the "Day of Atonement") commemorates the day in which the High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies to make atonement for the people of Israel. It is on this day we look to Yeshua, our Great High Priest, in whom we find atonement for sin and an eternal hope. As New Covenant believers we worship and rejoice in the completed work of atonement brought about by our Lord Yeshua, who died once for all when he offered up himself (Hebrews 7:27).
Sukkot - the Feast of Tabernacles (candle light celebration):
Sunday, October 16 @ 6 PM
Join us for a candle light celebration of Sukkot (literally "booths"), also known as the Feast of Tabernacles. We rejoice before the Lord together for all of his goodness to us, his hand of providence in our lives, and the work that he is doing among us. Sukkot points us to the immanent presence of the Lord Yeshua, who "tabernacled" with us as a man some two thousand years ago, and who is coming again soon to establish his eternal Kingdom. It was on Sukkot that Yeshua made several memorable statements, and we gain deeper insight into his person and work as we review each in their ancient Jewish context. Come, let us sing and rejoice before the Lord together!
