Program for kids and teens at Worldwide Conference
Our primary heart and goal is for you to be able to fully engage Worldwide Conference this year, confident that your kids are safe and taken care of. While that is true, we are also blessed to have a great program team lined up that is passionate about your kids having a ton of fun and learning more about who Jesus is. Teams have been recruited and the planning is just about finalized!
Separate programs for babies, toddlers, kids, and teens are in the works! A form will be going out to you in a few days that will help us know more about your child's specific needs (allergies, medications, restrictions, etc.) and provide you with specific information you will need in order to plan for their stay. Please look for that email soon!
