We are in the midst of the most important days of the Kingdom Calendar. Last week, we welcomed Yom Teruah, the Day of Blowing the Shofar that ushers in the 10 Days of Awe culminating in Yom Kippur the Day of Atonement. It’s a season of opening our hearts to rid ourselves of sin, T’Shuva (turning from or repentance), and regathering as the people of God.
Join us this weekend for very special services, as we remember the incredible atonement that Yeshua brought us by the shedding of His blood. Friday, September 29th at 7pm we will gather at Or Chaim for a solemn assembly, our Yom Kippur Kol Nidre service. If you have never attended a Yom Kippur service, come and experience corporate confession, repentance, and blessing, as we recognize and remember God’s incredible grace that came about through His atonement. It is also the beginning of the biblically mandated feast, a fast day of humbling.
On Shabbat, September 30th, we will have our scheduled Torah and worship service at 10:30am as we continue to remember this special season. WE WILL NOT HAVE AN ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE AS WE OBSERVE THE FAST.
On Saturday evening, at 5pm, we will be gathering at the home of Larry and Joyce Larson for our closing of Yom Kippur activities. Their address is: 117 S. ROGERS WAY, GOLDEN, CO. After a short service and time of worship, we will join in the traditional BREAK FAST as we enjoy a potluck meal together fellowshipping with our Mishpacha! PLEASE BRING A DISH WITH ENOUGH TO SHARE with each other (DIETARY APPROPRIATE) AS WE CLOSE OUT THIS WONDERFUL DAY!
On Wednesday, October 4th at 6pm, we will celebrate Erev Succoth at the farm of Tom and Mary Westendorf in Watkins, Co. We will meet in a genuine “sukkah” (primitive hut) so bring some Fall foliage to decorate! ALSO, THIS IS A POTLUCK, SO BRING A FAVORITE DISH AND ENOUGH TO SHARE! Weather permitting we will have a wonderful time of worship around the sukkah, and enjoy this special gathering as the people of Israel were commanded to make Aliyah to Jerusalem on this day! Mary will be sending out directions to their farm. You don’t want to miss this special evening!
As you can see, this is a special season, as we celebrate these “Moadim” (appointed times) a wonderful time of remembering God’s faithfulness and looking forward to His soon return! Invite your friends and family to these special gatherings, and be ready to receive great Blessing!
CHAG SAMEACH AND SHABBAT SHALOM!
