“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” John 1:14
We hope you’ve cleared your schedule and can join us – it’s only a short drive to Myrtle Beach but it’s a world away…filled with biblical teaching, laughter and fun! Please find the REGISTRATION FORM icon located on the left scroll bar to download and print the Registration Form. Start by completing the PERSONAL INFORMATION section
Gather up all your girlfriends, decide who’s rooming with whom and whether or not you want to stay an extra night (Myrtle Beach has great shopping!) – then fill out the ROOM INFORMATION section of the registration form.
ALL ARE WELCOME: Never been to church? Go to a different church? Don’t worry all are welcome! Come and enjoy the conference with hundreds of women from different backgrounds. We invite you to come with your sister, best friend, church or even your high school daughter. Please note: The conference planning team cares deeply about children, however, to keep your weekend free of distractions and as a courtesy to other participants, children younger than high school are not permitted in any session (including nursing infants).
YOUR ROOM & ROOMMATE: The $175 registration fee includes your Friday night hotel stay in a room with double occupancy (2 people per room). The hotel rooms are very comfortable and include two double beds and one bathroom. If you wish, and do not mind sharing a bed, you may choose to add one or two additional people to your room, but your conference fee will remain the same. We request that there are no more than 4 per room. Please note: Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee surrounding room requests.
SATURDAY NIGHT STAY: If you would like to extend your stay, you can take advantage of the group room rate ($112 + tax) and stay Saturday night following the conference. To reserve your room an additional night, you will need to contact the hotel directly at (843) 918-5000 sometime after December 15, 2011.
WORKSHOPS: We know, you’re saying, “it’s too hard to choose, can’t we just go to all of them?” But our goal is to send you home rejuvenated – not totally worn out!
So please read the selections below and complete the WORKSHOP SELECTION portion of the registration form with the two you are most interested in attending, and we will do our best to honor your selections. Don’t forget to bring your Bible!
As little girls, the facts of life meant learning about what happened to us as we became women. It seemed exciting and perhaps a little scary. Today, the Facts of Life are still about what happens when we become women. The facts of change, love, heartbreak and loss. The facts of purpose, destiny and sometimes confusion. This year’s WORKSHOPS will explore some of these Facts.
•What Do People Say About Me? Presented by Kay Hein
