Something for Everyone at the Family Fellowship Festival

January 01, 2005 | Jon Dalrymple

Upper Columbia Conference held its annual Family Fellowship Festival at Upper Columbia Academy in Spangle, Wash., Nov. 12–13, 2004.

This year’s special guests were G. Edward Reid, North American Division stewardship director and the keynote speaker of the event; Lee Venden, pastor of the College Place (Wash.) Village Church; and John Lomacang, a professional singer and pastor of the Thompsonville (Ill.) Church.

Many local pastors and speakers also offered seminars on Sabbath afternoon. These seminars covered topics such as writing for the Gleaner, health, prayer, and family life.

The Family Fellowship Festival also offers many youth and children’s programs. During Sabbath School and the afternoon seminars, there is always a full crowd of children and youth in each level of classes from cradle roll through youth. Each class has several dedicated leaders and teachers who put many hours into preparing the programs.

It would be impossible to experience everything that happens at a Family Fellowship Festival. But there is definitely something for everyone.
