Ministry Expo - 5:30 PM

You're invited to join us for the "Ministry Expo"
All Christians have a common ministry: to proclaim the good news and make disciples. We all have a unique collage of life experiences, talents and spiritual depth. That means that while we all share in the common ministry goal, how it is played out in our personal lives differs greatly.
At the Ministry Expo you will be able to see:
- Some of the many ways God is ministering to the world through your fellow brothers and sisters.
- Ask questions of each ministry featured: How to get started, how to help, prayer needs etc.
- Most importantly, you may be inspire to launch into a personal ministry of your own, as the Spirit leads!
The "Expo" will take place on Friday evening in the pre-assembly outside of the main ballroom at the Marriott. Stop by to learn various ways of fulfilling the commandment given to every believer and reach out to the world for the sake of the Savior.

Being a mom of small children, especially a new mom, can be overwhelming and isolating at times (even if you've already had one or two.) Join us for some precious "you time" with fellow moms and moms-to- be as we connect with one another and recharge with God's word and prayer. Nursing infants that can't be left with Dad are welcome but please give Dad some bonding time with busy toddlers. (Who can pay attention when they're poking each other in the eye?)

Concessions - 9:00 AM

So, you think you might get hungry while you're at the Winter Weekend? Wondering what in the world you'll be able to eat? Have we got a treat for you!!!!
How about Greek pitas, pita bowls, salads w/ feta dressing, tzatziki and hummus? We'll have quinoa and beans as a gluten free option for pita bowls. Perhaps you prefer a good old fashioned flame grilled hamburger or chicken fingers and fries. Maybe homemade chili is more to your liking. We'll even have gluten/dairy free pumpkin-cranberry muffins and gluten free brownies again this year. And of course, a trip to the Winter Weekend wouldn't be complete without the breakfast of champions... eggs incognito! All of these items and much, much more will be available all day Sunday and Monday at the gym. Everything is very reasonably priced making it the perfect place to feed your family. All proceeds from the sale of concessions go towards funding the activities of the weekend.

There are thousands of homeless out there, but it’s not always clear how any one person can help. That’s why we’re making sleeping mats and pillows out of plastic bags. Yeah, you read that right; in this drop-in style class we’ll be teaching you how to craft your old grocery bags into the plastic yarn (plarn) used to crochet the pest-proof, water-resistant sleeping gear that brings those in need some small measure of comfort. If nothing else may it inspire you to devise your own methods to provide for others without allowing a lack of budget or materials to stand in your way!
