FROM MINISTERIAL SERVICES:
YALW TAKING A YEAR OFF
Since this coming year will be extremely busy with the new office building and with conducting training classes for our international ministry this winter, we have decided to take a year off from sponsoring the Young Adult Leadership Weekend in 2018. In place of the usual Presidents’ Day weekend activity, we will have two special seminar presentations at this year’s Winter Family Weekend in Louisville.
The first special seminar is titled “Five Major Messages for the Next Generation” and will be presented by Doug Horchak, operation manager for Ministerial Services. The second is “The Deciding Decade: Why Your 20s Are Important and What to Do With Them” and will be given by Dave Myers.
For those young adults who will not be able to attend in person, each session will be video recorded and posted on the Church’s member website so that everyone can have access to the material.
While we know that not having a weekend retreat in 2018 will be disappointing to some, we are looking forward to revamping the YALW in 2019 to make it more inspiring and effective than ever.
WINTER FAMILY WEEKEND
What is it and when is it?
The Winter Family Weekend runs from Friday evening, Dec. 22, through Tuesday night, Dec. 26, 2017—so it’s more than just a weekend! We start things off with a Bible study on Friday night, followed by Sabbath morning seminars, afternoon services and some Saturday night dancing. From Sunday through Tuesday evening, all attendees can participate in daily educational seminars, basketball, volleyball, organized games for the kids, including bowling. Other activities include karaoke, a jam session for musicians, family novelty Olympics, a clothing swap for families, free pizza dinner, a family dance and of course the family fun fair, which includes large inflatables, putt-putt golf, a mechanical bull and more. The “best costume” winner at the adult dance on Saturday night wins a complimentary night’s stay at the Galt House, and the “best costume” winner at the teen dance wins $20. For most, the highlight seems to be the fellowship time with our spiritual family. There truly is something for everyone.
Additional information was sent to everyone on the Email list yesterday. There should also be a copy of the Flyer on the Information Table.
Registration is open for WFW. Go to the Member’s website to register and to obtain the link for discount price housing at the Galt House.
