This will be our 5th year celebrating the Feast at beautiful Honey Creek Resort State Park. Far from any big 'touristy' attractions, the site offers an opportunity to come out of the world and spend time learning, growing, and developing relationships with other members of our church family. We look forward to another Feast filled with meaningful messages, inspirational music, thought provoking seminars and Bible Studies, and fun fellowship focused activities for all ages, and we would love to have you join us.
Honey Creek Resort is owned and operated by the State of Iowa Department of Natural Resources and is first class in every respect. The resort is located on the 11,000 acre Rathbun Lake. The property itself has 850 acres and includes hiking and biking trails, an 18 hole golf course, boating, kayaking, an indoor water park, cottages, suites, rooms, an excellent on site restaurant and much more.
