The highlight of each year for members of the United Church of God is the biblical Feast of Tabernacles. Among the sacred feasts God revealed to ancient Israel, this festival, which falls in autumn in the northern hemisphere, lasts seven days and is immediately followed by a separate but related festival on the eighth day (Leviticus 23:34, 36, 39). This eight-day period remains an occasion for God's servants to come together for spiritual instruction and renewal.
Meeting in regional locations around the world, families gather to picture the "world to come" (see Hebrews 2:5-7), which will begin immediately after the return of Christ to earth. The theme of the Feast of Tabernacles is Jesus' millennial reign.
