Please bring drink items to share as well. I’ll have extra cups, napkins and plates available but please bring your own dishes and utensils. There will be a place where you can place extra snacks to share so you can nibble throughout the day.

ANGELS AND MORTALS

Every male will write their name on a blue  piece of paper, and every female will write their name on a pink piece of paper.  All of the papers with names will go into a hat and be passed around, with each person taking a name of their same sex. Everyone must keep the name of their person secret for the duration of Sukkot.
 
The purpose of this is to bless the person whose name you have daily, either by writing them a note, or giving them a small gift. Every night at dinner the items will be placed in a designated area and handed out. The person whose name you have is your “mortal” and you are blessed by your “angel”. Above all else, pray for your “mortal” every day. At the end of the week, we will reveal who your angels were.

Corona Protocol

It is important that the health and safety of everyone attending during this ongoing Corona
outbreak is priority. Thus, a protocol has been developed to hep stop the spread during our
season of joy!
First of all, please pray for everyone during this time, that we will all be able to have an
incredible time without any illness of any kind.
If any participant displays any COVID symptoms during their stay at Cherry Creek Reservoir,
the host, Debra Green, will be notified immediately by cell at 720-633-2794 and self-isolate. A
rapid test will be provided and the participant will self administer by carefully following the
directions. The test results, regardless of result, will be called in to Debra’s cell as soon as they
are shown. (The rapid test takes about 15 minutes.) If a participant is shown positive, then the
participant agrees to leave the site immediately and not return during the Sukkot holiday. Those
who have come with the participant may choose to stay as long as they are not exhibiting any
symptoms.
The wearing of a mask during this time is YOUR choice. Everyone should respect an
individual’s decision. Please continue to utilize common sense during this time and wash
your hands frequently, and notify Debra if the bathroom is in need of any supplies to maintain a
clean and healthy environment for all.
General Considerations
Please keep in mind that this is a multi-congregational event with people attending from
various backgrounds, opinions and growth. We are allowed to disagree theologically with each
other, but we are never allowed to not love each other. Please understand that everyone
helping out are volunteers whom have chosen to bless us with their gifts and time. Every one of
them should receive nothing but thanks and appreciation for all they have done, even if you are
not in agreement with them. Please choose to be a blessing by giving positive feedback and
practice giving words of encouragement to everyone. Offer to help where you can to make this
a blessed time for everyone.
Sukkot is during our season of JOY! Keep it that way! I’ve put together a schedule that if you
choose to participate, should give us the right balance of time to have fun, time to study, and
time to be a blessing. Do not think that you must participate in everything on the schedule.
You may have opportunities to minister to other people and the L-rd may be doing awesome
things outside of the set schedule. Please do feel the need to explain to anyone, why you are
choosing to do something or not. We are open to whatever the L-rd has in store for us and we
expect many great things to happen in all of our lives!
