8/21/2018- The calendar is marching relentlessly onward and that means we here at COI are preparing for our upcoming September festivals. The first observance of a high holy day lands on September 9th, and that is the Feast of Trumpets, Ethanim. Next comes the solemn feastday known as the Day of Atonement, also a high holy day and a day of fasting and prayer, on September 18th. Shortly following that, from September 23-30, we will be hosting our much-anticipated Feast of Tabernacles, which will feature morning and evening services, communal meals provided by the local congregation, and free lodging. We urge you to make this year's commanded feastdays a priority in your life, to the very best of your ability. Call today to reserve your room.
4/19/2018 - The Feast of Passover has officially come and gone, and we can honestly report that by all measures it was a success. We were truly honored to host this decade’s legitimatly record-breaking number of visitors! While the weather vacillated between hot and cold per your typical, finicky Missouri spring, everyone managed to keep their cool and focus on warm adoration and praise of the one true LORD in whose name we convened. It took many hands and the sacrifice of innumerable man-hours to make observing this festival possible, so on behalf of all at COI, we are grateful to the many people who put their lives on hold to attend and also are thankful for those who worked tirelessly to make this annual event a meaningful one. May our Father in heaven continue to bring forth a harvest of blessings from the lessons learned and the Christian fellowship shared in the intervening months, until we meet again at
the Feast of Tabernacles.

10/01/2017 - We here at COI are very excited to be able to host a celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles, October 3rd through the 10th, for all Gospel of the Kingdom believers per Leviticus 23:33-36.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD. On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
09/26/2017 - The season of High Holy days continues, with the Day of Atonement fast approaching! This upcoming Thursday, September 28th, is the appointed day of fasting and prayer as found in Leviticus chapter 23, verses 26-28:
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.
God's holy, specially anointed feast days are specifically enumerated as occasions He expects His believers to observe. This upcoming Tuesday, September 19th, is one such day--the Feast of Trumpets. Numbers 29:1--"And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you."
Leviticus 23:24--"Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation."
Join us in honor of the Day of Trumpets, Tuesday morning at 9:30.
