Update on collection of Holy Day Offerings for the Upcoming Fall Festivals

In consultation with the president and the administration, we have decided to return to our old way of collecting the holy day offerings—the method the Church used for the past many decades. We will collect the offering at the various Feast of Tabernacles sites by passing the offertory baskets. We will do the same in our local congregations for the Feast of Trumpets and Day of Atonement. 

For many decades the Church has quoted Deuteronomy 16:16 to encourage the giving of an offering at services. While during the worst of the pandemic, we were unable to physically pass a basket for health reasons, we realize most brethren still prefer to give their offering in person on the holy day.  

Unless things change, it is our plan to collect holy day offerings in person at the various Feast sites and in our local congregations. The option to give one’s holy day offering online is also available to anyone who would prefer that method.

As always, the Church deeply appreciates the holy day offerings given by the members and ministry.
