A Sabbath Event

You are invited to join us for a special Shabbaton (a special event on the Sabbath). The Shabbaton will begin with a Friday night Erev Shabbat meal and end with Havdalah the next evening. This will be a time of special focus, education, and celebration on the Sabbath. This event is open to all! For some, this will be an exciting opportunity to learn more about this appointed time; for others, it will be affirming and strengthening.

God created the heavens and the earth in six days and then, “...on the seventh day He rested. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work, which God had created and made” (Genesis 2:3). The Shabbat is a blessed and sanctified time. We will experience the goodness and provision of God through his gift of the holy Sabbath and will be learning and discussing ways in which we can, in turn, honor God through this time.

  • Shabbat: A Foretaste of the Kingdom

Let’s Celebrate the Shabbat with Family & Friends!

Together we will learn, sing, pray, discuss, and connect; all of the things that the Sabbath table is intended to foster. The Shabbaton is intended to affirm the good of the Sabbath, underscore its merit through in-depth discussions and teachings, and give individuals and communities some practical steps to honor God through the Sabbath in a meaningful manner. The time will fly by leaving deep impressions, wonderful memories, and a deep passion to bring this service into one’s own home.

This Will Be a Yeshua & Kingdom Centered Celebration!

Yeshua, our Messiah, is the Lord of the Sabbath and the Sabbath is a visible sign of our Messianic Kingdom perspective—the time of complete rest. Strengthening our practice and understanding of the Sabbath today enables us to practice our kingdom destiny. As Isaiah says, in the future kingdom, Israel, along with the righteous of the nations (Gentiles), will be honoring God each Sabbath (c.f. Isaiah 66:23).

Paul says, the Sabbath is a shadow of the Messianic Era and the substance belongs to the Messiah (c.f. Colossians 2:16-17). That means that every time we keep the Sabbath we are partaking in the kingdom, in the Messianic Era, and participating in the body of Messiah. Join us, taste of the Kingdom, and honor the Messiah.
