Breakout Sessions

Project Blue
Did you know that more people have cell phones than have access to clean water? Did you know that lack of clean water is a women’s issue? Obtaining water is a fulltime job for women and children—preventing them from attending school. Learn about how Project Blue is working to provide clean water to communities.
Bible Journaling
If you love to read the Bible—and to draw and journal—welcome to the world of Bible journaling. Make the truth of God’s Word come alive by adding your own artwork and notes right on the page of your Bible. It’s a creative way to meditate and reflect on your reading. Karrie Popa will lead this session to introduce you to this new and expressive way of listening and responding to God.
Missional Moms
What does it mean to be ‘missional?’ Do I have a ‘mission’? How can I have a ‘mission’? I spend all my time shuttling the kids around. Kristine Dreyer, a missional mom herself, shares what it means to be ‘missional’ – for all women, not just moms. Being missional is answering the call to rise and answer God’s call.

I keep hearing all sorts of good things that are going on. Keep it up!

One neighborhood banded together and brought 'Elsa' to visit houses that had smaller children. She stayed outside and sang and danced for the kids. The kids were so thrilled that 'Elsa' came to see them!

We all need something to look forward to in these dark days. These days will not last. We will come out of it.
