Dear Feast Goer
The North Texas Fellowship, once again, extends a warm welcome to join us in celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles in beautiful North Texas at Lake Texoma beginning Monday evening, September 20, 2021. We have a wonderful facility and accommodations at the Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center in Pottsboro, Texas. Pottsboro is 75 miles North of Dallas, Texas. It is a region full of Texas lakes and plains and numerous activities. We are very pleased to report that, thanks to feast offerings, Tanglewood Resort added the wonderful luxury of heating their pools.
It is our hope for this Feast that we worship the Father, giving glory, honor, and praise to Him; to rejoice with our spiritual family and grow in the image of His Son Jesus Christ, and to be strengthened that we may return to our communities with a deeper love for people and deeper knowledge and understanding of the Word of God.
We are thrilled about this location by the fact that the accommodations and meeting facilities are all in close proximity, along with having group meals, which will lend us the opportunity to grow our relationships with each other, the Father, and His Son.
This will be a family-friendly, open festival site – a site where all are welcome if they come in peace to share experiences and to worship together.
We will plan to have multiple group meals, plenty of fun activities, great fellowship opportunities, and eight (8) days of reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. Great care and planning of the meals are a priority and more information will be provided as we draw closer to the Fall.
The previous two years of hosting the feast at Tanglewood have truly been blessed and this year we hope to host a feast with whatever our Creator provides for us. What this means is that it is yet to be determined the details such as the number of messages, formal and interactive, music, children’s classes, meals, and other activities. The services provided will be determined by what God provides and who will be involved to assist in providing those services. Needless to say, we start our planning prayerfully with humble and simple beginnings.
We ask you to bring your spiritual gifts and your praise and worship to Tanglewood Resort this Fall.
To help us plan, please go to our Feast website http://northtexasfot.org to register. It will make our planning so much easier. We are looking to use your gifts whether they are serving behind the scenes, teaching, singing, playing an instrument, or encouraging the brethren. We have also created a Facebook event as a means of spreading the word.
Tanglewood Resort offers a variety of premier accommodations that are relaxing, comfortable and amenity-rich. Choose from guest rooms with beautiful views of Lake Texoma to villas that are spacious and fully equipped with all the amenities of home. All accommodation choices are peaceful, convenient and truly offer a unique lodging experience.
The resort has 3 primary choices for accommodations: hotel-style rooms offering King and 2 Queen Beds each with mini-fridge and microwave; onsite villas and tower suites. PLEASE go to their website https://tanglewoodresort.com/rooms/ for descriptions of the various rooms available, as there are several to choose from.
$69 King or 2 Queen, 1-4 people hotel room
$119 Tower Suites, Themed Rooms with King (Only 6 available)
$99 1-bedroom, 2-Queen villa suite, sleeps 4 with kitchenette
$135 1-bedroom Master villa, full kitchen, 1-4 people
$165 2-bedroom, 1-King Master, 2-queen 2nd BR, full kitchen, 2-6 people
Features: the same location as services, condos are upscale.
To reserve a room at the hotel please call:
(800) 833-6569 – Use code: #10E7X9
Note that the 2-bedroom villa is a combination of the master and 2-queen villas. There is a connecting door between the two. For those that would be interested in a Master villa, would you consider booking a 2-bedroom villa and then allowing us to sublet the 2nd double queen. By itself, that room goes for $99. The difference between the master and the 2 bedrooms is only $30. This could be a huge blessing to someone. Contact John Snyder for more info (firstname.lastname@example.org)
There are no camping or RV sites available on the property. However, there are several campgrounds/RV sites in the nearby area.
Our website, http://northtexasfot.org has two main purposes. The first is to provide you with all the information you need to plan your trip. The other is for us to understand how many of you are hoping to come, what your needs are and how you may be willing to volunteer your gifts, skills, and time. The information you give us by registering is essential for us to provide enough for everyone without being wasteful. The website is a work in process and will continue to be updated as we get closer to the Festival – so please check back often!

As this is going to be the third year for this Feast site to be hosted the groundwork has been laid, but there’s always room for improvement and growth. We know God always provides, and we will strive to be good stewards of all His blessings. Our hope is that this Feast site will be a blessing to all who desire to attend. For a few, we know going to the Feast can be a strain no matter how diligent the preparations. It’s our hope to make the Feast as affordable as possible for all. We are planning a handful of group meals and ways to set aside a few housing units at much lower prices than others. If you would like to help in advance with making the Feast more affordable for others, please contact John Snyder.
Located in a quiet cove, Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center along Lake Texoma will provide a tranquil Feast setting near the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. Lake Texoma is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States and is well-known for some of the region’s finest freshwater striped bass fishing. One benefit is that Feastgoers will basically take over the resort.
If you want a relaxing Feast with nice views of the lake or would like to engage in multiple activities, Tanglewood Resort can accommodate your preference. Tanglewood features 248 guest rooms including condos and hotel rooms. Amenities include fine dining to a casual poolside restaurant and bar, plus three pools or hot tub, volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, lighted tennis courts, Nautilus fitness center, hiking trails, fishing, boat cruises, wave runners and pontoon boats and an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer. There will be ample activities geared toward youth and young adults. Other activities include kayaks, sailboats, stand up paddleboards and dinner cruises.
Nearby towns of Denison and Sherman provide additional restaurants and shopping. Downtown Dallas is less than ninety minutes away for those wanting to explore other options. Sunny days and moderate temperatures in the upper 70s during the day to upper 50s at night are normal for October.
Maritime Ballroom, Tanglewood Resort, 290 Tanglewood Circle, Pottsboro, TX 75076.
