You are invited…

… to a Christian convention designed to strengthen, edify, and even entertain the whole family. Come and experience everything from worship and workshops to soccer, rocketry, and quiz bowl. Registration link below!

Families of all sizes, from one to a dozen, are welcome

People of all ages are included, with ministry focused on the family. Please note that this year’s graduates and anyone under 18 must have in attendance a parent, grandparent, or other adult who will be fully responsible for them. 

What’s Happening?

Ministry

Ministry  will include family devotions, family building activities, parent and youth workshops, children’s meetings, ministry directed to the whole family, and plenty of informal fellowship. Our theme this year will be “The Psalms of Ascent.”

Afternoon Activities and Sports

Afternoon activities and sports are open to all convention attendees, with parents encouraged to participate with their children! Some sports times may be divided by age group, while others may include fun and games for the whole family. 

Old Testament Quiz Bowl

We are planning an evening of quiz bowl with questions based on the Old Testament, so be sure to brush up on your people, places, and events from Genesis to Malachi!

Other Notes

Staff  We will have a core staff of volunteers, but everyone’s help will be needed for meals, dishes, cleaning, etc. Help with cleanup after the convention ends Friday is especially appreciated.

Tenting  If any family would like the additional adventure of camping for the week, there are some available campsites equipped with water and electric hookups. Please indicate in your registration if you wish to do this.

Items to bring:  Bible, sheets or sleeping bag, towel and washcloth

Items you may wish to bring:  Notebook, swim gear, fans (our rooms are not equipped with A/C), money for the snack bar
