Come to the County Fair!
Dates: September 13 to September 21, 2014
Scripture: "Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story." Psalm 207:2 (NIV)
Two years ago, the theme of City Church's annual Missions Conference was "Impossibilities." One year ago, it was "Opportunities." This year, it is "Stories." God allows impossibilities to come into our lives, provides us with opportunities to overcome those challenges, and then we have stories to share with others of our journey to victory.
Last year, our over-all theme was a cruise ship and, after a formal banquet, we set "sail" and went from port to port each night throughout the week. This year, the over-all theme is A County Fair. We will begin the conference with a fair in the gymnasium, including game booths for the children, food vendors, a pie tasting/judging contest for adults, and a cupcake decorating contest for children, a foot stomping/hand clapping time of welcoming our visiting missionaries, and a brief program.
The fair will continue throughout the week with story tellers (visiting missionaries) in the sanctuary at 6:30 p.m. and a fair in the Fellowship Hall at 8:00 p.m. The fair will include booths with items for sale from around the world and, yup, you guessed it, more fair food.
