This will be the fourth year for the United Church of God to host the Feast of Tabernacles and Eighth Day festivals in Oceanside, California. The city, located in Northern San Diego County and is known for its wide stretch of beaches and quaint harbor. Right next door is the charming beachside community of Carlsbad.

The weather at this time of year should be in the mid-70s to low 80s, which is just right to enjoy swimming, fishing or sailing. Just 15 to 45 minutes down the coast are all the famous tourist attractions that San Diego is known for such as: Del Mar, Torrey Pines State Park, La Jolla, the Birch Aquarium, Old Town, Seaport Village, the historic maritime district, Seaworld, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Seaport Village, and Legoland. Go 50 minutes to the northeast and you are in the sun-kissed wine country vineyards of Temecula.

We will be meeting at the QLN Conference Center that’s a modern, bright, yet intimate one-story facility. This is located about four miles inland. It is no further than 10 to 15 minutes from any location in Oceanside or Carlsbad. It can be reached by light rail from downtown Oceanside. We will strive to have a wide range of accommodations that make this festival site financially available to all.

We are expecting around 500-600 attendees, offering all the opportunities of a larger festival site, but with the opportunity to get acquainted with one another. Most importantly our main purpose for assembling is to worship God, learn more about His marvelous plan of salvation, and fellowship with like-minded and like-hearted fellow believers. With this focus in mind, we will have spiritually focused education venues for every age, along with special seminars in the afternoon and a night-time Bible study.

We are looking for help with parking, ushering, sound and video, adminstrative office help, and greeting

email FotOceansidecausa@gmail if you want to serve in Oceanside this year.

We are asking for help on Parking Lot Teams at the Feast in Oceanside.
We are looking for as many volunteers as possible to help in directing traffic in the various parking lots.The service commitment requires you to be at QLN Conference center 1 ½ hours prior beginning of services.The goal is to get enough volunteers so that we can limit the amount of days one would need to serve to 3 or 4 maximum. We are encouraging our teens and young adults to step forward also to help in this area.This is an important Team service that helps everyone that attends.

As we are preparing to praise and rejoice before God at the Feast of Tabernacles consider how music is a very important part of our services. If you are attending the Oceanside Feast Site and desire to serve in the choir or perform special music, please let us know. As our musical director becomes ready he or she will have more information available.

As in past years our teens have helped make the Seniors' Banquest a big success. We are asking again for teens to serve at the Senior Citizens' Banquet.
