Let’s Go to the General Conference!


All Israel was summoned to take part in three annual worship assemblies at the sanctuary. The people were to leave their houses and properties under God’s special care so that they could fellowship at Jerusalem.


God also has special plans for His people today, and one of them is to gather together to worship Him.

A momentous anniversary, a solemn thought

October 22, 2014. One hundred seventy years have passed since the great disappointment happened, when more than 50,000 believers in the Advent message were expecting the second coming of Christ to purify the “sanctuary” (which they believed was the planet earth).


Many had abandoned their employment, their harvest, their business, believing that October 22nd would be their last day on earth. In preparation for that event, there was reconciliation, payment of debts, and gathering of the family and friends foreseeing Christ’s arrival to take them to the heavenly home.

A blessing with an international flavor!


On October 11, 2014, the Roanoke Church received a wonderful blessing. For several days in September and October, the brethren from the General Conference Council, Doctrinal Council, Regional Secretaries, and Departmental officers were meeting at the GC headquarters to consider various points in preparation for the 22nd GC Delegation Session to be held in Virginia in 2015. So, while these officers were in town, we were able to enjoy a high Sabbath with them together with the visit of brethren, sisters, and friends both from here and from neighboring states.
