A weekend of Christian fellowship for young adults, ages 16-35*, where the gospel is proclaimed, the Scriptures are taught, and the saints are encouraged.
The Winter Congress weekend retreat at Greenwood Hills is not only an opportunity to hear high-quality Bible teaching, but also a chance to reconnect with old friends, form new friendships, and encourage one another in our walk with the Lord. Due to COVID-19, Winter Congress will be held virtually in 2021, and the usual program will be adapted to an online format that will allow for great fellowship in addition to the excellent Bible instruction. Young adults ages 16-35 who have never been married are welcome to register for this free event, held January 8-10, 2021, and take advantage of this opportunity.
Who? Possibly you… young adults ages 16-35*
What? A “young-adult friendly” schedule full of great Bible teaching, singing, fun, games, and friends.
When? Virtual meetings at 8:00 pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and 10:00 am on Saturday.
Program Director: Craig Shakarji
Board Representative: Dan Weaver
