Shavuot - The Feast of Weeks
Shavuot is a wonderful Feast of the Lord celebrating both Israel becoming God's nation at Mount Sinai with the receiving of the Torah and the commencing of the wheat harvest in Israel.
Most of us Yeshua-followers know it as Pentecost and much of today's church believes this event began 50 days after Yeshua rose from the dead. The roots of Shavuot actually extend back to the original event at Mount Sinai! In fact, "Pentecost" was not a start, but a FULFILLMENT of Shavuot, where once again God gathered a people for himself (a kingdom of priests and a holy nation - 1 Peter 2:9) and gave them their Constitution, the Torah, now written on hearts instead of stones.
Shavuot celebrates our relationship with the Lord, our commitment to His Word, and promotes global outreach of the Gospel.
Issachar Community is hosting a Shavuot celebration with an outdoor feast at Lakeside Commons Park and Beach. We will have a blast with:
- Worship and Prayer
- Shavuot service
- Swimming, kayaking, and playground activities for the kids
- And did we mention food?
