Dear Church Family
The North Texas Fellowship extends a warm welcome to join us in celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles in beautiful north Texas at Lake Texoma beginning Sunday evening, October 13th, 2019. We have a wonderful facility and accommodations at the Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center in Pottsboro, Texas. Pottsboro is 75 miles North of Dallas, Texas. It is a region full of Texas lakes and plains and numerous activities.
It is our hope for this Feast that we worship our Creator, giving glory, honor and praise to Him; to rejoice with our spiritual family and grow in the image of His Son Jesus Christ; and to be strengthened that we may return to our communities with deeper love for people and deeper knowledge and understanding of the Word of God.
This year’s Feast theme will be focused on the book of I John 4, but specifically on verse 19, “we love Him, because He first loved us.” We are thrilled about this location by the fact that the accommodations and meeting facility are all very near each other which, along with having group meals, will lend us the opportunity to grow our relationships with each other, our Creator and His Son.
This will be a family-friendly, open festival site – a site where all are welcome if they come in peace to share experiences and to worship together.
We will plan to have multiple group meals, plenty of fun activities, great fellowship opportunities and eight (8) days of reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. Great care and planning of the meals are a priority and more information will be provided as we draw closer to the Fall.
We ask you to bring your spiritual gifts and your praise and worship to Tanglewood Resort this Fall.
To help us plan, please go to our Feast website http://northtexasfot.org register. It will make our planning so much easier. We are looking to use your gifts whether they are serving behind the scenes, teaching, singing, playing an instrument, or encouraging the brethren. We have also created a Facebook event as a means of spreading the word.
Tanglewood Resort offers a variety of premier accommodations that are relaxing, comfortable and amenity-rich. Choose from guest rooms with beautiful views of Lake Texoma to villas that are spacious and fully equipped with all the amenities of home. All accommodation choices are peaceful, convenient and truly offer a unique lodging experience.
The resort has 3 primary choices for accommodations: hotel style rooms offering King and 2 Queen Beds each with mini fridge and microwave; onsite villas and tower suites. PLEASE go to their website https://tanglewoodresort.com/rooms/ for descriptions of the various rooms available, as there are several to choose from.
$69 King or 2 Queen, 1-4 people hotel room
$119 Tower Suites, Themed Rooms with King (Only 6 available)
$99 1-bedroom, 2-Queen villa suite, sleeps 4 with kitchenette
$135 1-bedroom Master villa, full kitchen, 1-4 people
$165 2-bedroom, 1-King Master, 2-queen 2nd BR, full kitchen, 2-6 people
Features: same location as services, condos are upscale.
To reserve a room at the hotel please call:
(800) 833-6569 – Use code: #10C3W1
Note that the 2-bedroom villa is a combination of the master and 2-queen villas. There is a connecting door between the two. For those that would be interested in a Master villa, would you consider booking a 2-bedroom villa and then allowing us to sublet the 2nd double queen. By itself that room goes for $99. The difference between the master and the 2 bedroom is only $30. This could be a huge blessing to someone. Contact John Snyder for more info (email@example.com)
There are no camping or RV sites available on the property. However, there are several campgrounds/RV sites in the nearby area.
SABBATH OCT. 12TH
Some have already expressed interest in arriving early for the Feast. Please consider joining us for Sabbath Services on Oct. 12 at the Tanglewood Resort. Details to follow.
Our website, http://northtexasfot.org has two main purposes. The first is to provide you with all the information you need to plan your trip. The other is for us to understand how many of you are hoping to come, what your needs are and how you may be willing to volunteer your gifts, skills, and time. The information you give us by registering is essential for us to provide enough for everyone without being wasteful. The website is a work in process and will continue to be updated as we get closer to the Festival – so please check back often!

As this is going to be a new Feast site hosted by a relatively new group our resources are limited for the moment. We know God always provides, and we will strive to be good stewards of all His blessings. Our hope is that this Feast site will be a blessing to all who desire to attend. For a few, we know going to the Feast can be a strain no matter how diligent the preparations. It’s our hope to make the Feast as affordable as possible for all. We are planning a handful of group meals and ways to set aside a few housing units at much lower prices than others. If you would like to help in advance with making the Feast more affordable for others, please contact John Snyder.
Located in a quiet cove, Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center along Lake Texoma will provide a tranquil Feast setting near the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. Lake Texoma is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States and is well-known for some of the region’s finest freshwater striped bass fishing. One benefit is that Feastgoers will basically take over the resort.
If you want a relaxing Feast with nice views of the lake or would like to engage in multiple activities, Tanglewood Resort can accommodate your preference. Tanglewood features 248 guest rooms including condos and hotel rooms. Amenities include fine dining to a casual pool-side restaurant and bar, plus three pools or hot tub, volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, lighted tennis courts, Nautilus fitness center, hiking trails, fishing, boat cruises, wave runners and pontoon boats and an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer. There will be ample activities geared towards the youth and young adults. Other activities include kayaks, sailboats, stand up paddleboards and dinner cruises.
Nearby towns of Denison and Sherman provide additional restaurants and shopping. Downtown Dallas is less than ninety minutes away for those wanting to explore other options. Sunny days and moderate temperatures in the upper 70s during the day to upper 50s at night are normal for October.
Maritime Ballroom, Tanglewood Resort, 290 Tanglewood Circle, Pottsboro, TX 75076.
