I would like to personally invite you and your family to join us at Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) hosted by Lion and Lamb Ministries, held in our usual beautiful location at Bell Cow Lake in Chandler, Oklahoma from
This year’s theme is Zealous over Zion, and we will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem and the 70th for the State of Israel. We have invited a number of excellent teachers and worship leaders to join the Tabernacles team to provide new and expanded activities for every member of your family.
The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) is called the “season of joy,” and we are given the double commandment in the Torah to “rejoice before the Lord.” This is time to meet your fellow Messianic brethren from all over the world. Each evening we eat the feast together and then assemble for worship, dance, and teaching. Several evenings will have activities for youth, and College & Career aged groups for extra fellowship. During the day, we have programs for children, junior youth, youth, and adults. I can assure you that you will have a very enjoyable experience.
If you are new to the Messianic Movement, we definitely want you to join us.
We want you to see that this movement is bigger than you thought and to experience rapid growth in your faith.

These are not insignificant expenses; however, we encourage you to bring a designated gift or offering for the LORD as commanded in Deuteronomy 16:16. Consider your decision now and prepare your hearts to join with fellow believers and come worship the LORD! The camp won’t be the same without you!
