SHUTTLE SERVICE

If you are planning to arrive by bus, train or plane and will need someone to pick you up at a terminal in St. Louis, a shuttle service is available.

HOWEVER, this year we are again requiring everyone who needs shuttle service to arrive ONE DAY EARLY. This means that shuttle service will offered at 1-3pm on September 12th and then again at 8-10am on the September 23rd.

We are requiring this because we have found it is too hectic and stressful to pick everyone at the airport, stop at the store on the way in, and still set up everything before sundown.

We will not be able to pick anyone up or drop anyone off at any other times so plan your travel accommodations accordingly.

Will you be needing the shuttle service?

If yes, supply arrival/departure information, flight number etc. If you don't have it, write "To be Determined": 
Make sure that the "Total number of persons" below is accurate so we know how many people are riding.

Watchmen on the Walls

During the night we have at least 2 men quietly praying together and watching over the camp during 3 hour shifts (watches).
This is also a great way to get to know another brother in Messiah. Many friendships between brothers have started here!
Note: If a shift isn't available on a particular night, it means that we have enough volunteers for that particular shift/night.
Each shift will show the number of brothers that have selected that slot (including you).

Rules & Guidelines
The rules below are simply common sense guidelines to help everyone enjoy the festival without distractions and problems.
We haven't had any major problems in the past, and we just want to keep it that way. Please indicate your agreement by clicking the "We agree" checkbox. If you have any questions about them, feel free to contact me.

* Attendees must firmly believe in the inspiration of scripture (Genesis to Revelation), and believe the Sabbath day is on the 7th day of the week, commonly called 'saturday'. However, if you normally attend a congregation on the 1st day of the week, commonly called 'sunday', you are welcome to join us and learn about the blessing of the Feast of Tabernacles, without judgment.

* There is a Dress Code requiring modest apparel for both men and women. Please do not bring see-through clothing, clothes which draw attention to, or reveal the shape of, the private parts of the body such as low necklines and tight fitting garments. Shorts, skirts and dresses should not expose the knees when sitting down. If you wear pants (whether male or female), please wear a loose long shirt (or skirt/dress) to cover the area between the waist and thighs. See this picture for an example (Popup window).
Thanks for your understanding; we want those who have weaknesses to enjoy the feast without having to constantly engage in spiritual battle.
If you can't afford long, loose shirts, choose yes in this box: and we will provide some for you at no cost.

* Pets are permitted as long as they are leashed and supervised at all times, and are not a disturbance to others. If they are a disturbance, you will be asked to house them in a kennel or leave the campground. They are not permitted in the meeting hall.

* Alcoholic beverages are not permitted. The campground is a tobacco-free environment.

* Parents are held accountable for their children and teens. Children in the play areas and elsewhere must be supervised.

* Quiet time is enforced from 11pm to 8:00am local time. If you bring a dog, you will be held responsible for any barking that occurs.

* In the interest of purity, males/females who are not in a consummated marriage should refrain from physical affection, and from going together to private locations, away from public view.

We agree to the above rules & guidelines
