Our seventh Grace Family Conference at the lake will be on August 17th at Cross Pointe Camp & Retreat Center. We are looking forward to our church coming together to worship, fellowship, and explore what the Bible says about our theme: “Family Challenges & Opportunities"

We are excited to have activities for children (walking to 5th grade) and a speaker coming in for the teens (6th-12th grades) during the adult speaker sessions! Cross Pointe is located at the Lake of the Ozarks and there will be opportunities for your family to spend time enjoying each other, the lake, and other activities.

Our speaker is Leandro Tarrataca, who is one of our missionaries from Brazil. He will be using Romans 12:2 to walk us through this time together, see more info about Leandro below.

 We have a wonderful day planned starting at 9am and will be sharing more about the schedule as we get close, but we plan to wrap up by 7:30pm.  Scroll down to get signed up today, adults (over 12) are $30, kids (4-12) are $20, and kids under 4 are free. The cost includes Saturday lunch, dinner, and lake activities for the day. We cannot make special menus for individual dietary needs but we do have a shared refrigerator that you can use to bring your own meals (the cost is $12 for lake activity only).

There is an option to book a room to go down and stay Friday night at Cross Pointe. There will not be a dinner served but there will be a game and snacks night organized by Pastor Denis. For those that stay Friday night, there will be a simple breakfast served Saturday morning before the sessions start (muffins, fruit, etc). If you are interested in this option, select your room option IN ADDITION to the choices of your Saturday options. Check-in starts at 3pm on Friday and check-out is by 11am on Saturday.

*We do have an option to break your total cost up into up to 3 payments. If you are interested in utilizing that, please email Sara at the button below to get that set up instead of using the form.

If you have any additional questions, email Pastor Denis using the button below.
