Breakout Sessions

Morning Options

BLESS: Intentional Evangelism Initiative (Led by Meagan Gillan)

What if you could find a way to share your faith with people? A way that feels normal and natural while still being intentional? The Covenant Church is introducing a new way of thinking about evangelism. God’s way of reaching and restoring the world has always been through blessing. These five missional practices make up the acronym BLESS and are a way to participate in the strategy God gave Abraham to reach the world. “And I will bless you…and you will be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2).

International Justice Mission (Led by Jocelyn White)

Come learn more about the issue of modern day slavery and International Justice Mission (www.ijm.org). Discover what the Bible says about injustice. Hear one boy’s story of slavery, rescue and redemption. How are we to respond to such injustice? How does God feel about all this? There is freedom from oppression because of the work of God’s people following in the footsteps of Jesus. We can be a part of the solution, we can be a part of this miraculous transformation. We can be witnesses to the Kingdom of God as it shatters the darkness! – Until all are Free.

Botanicals of the Bible (Led by Jan Hiner)

Spring is in the air! Join floral design instructor Jan Hiner as she gives us an overview of plants and botanicals found in the Bible. We will discover which of these plants grow locally and then learn how to make a simple ‘Ikabana’ style arrangement using plants from our own backyards. Ladies will not only leave with their own small arrangement to take home but will also be inspired to create more from God’s beautiful bounty. No experience necessary!

Levántate, Resplandece, Porque Ha Llegado Tu Luz (Led by Miriam Zamora)

Given in Spanish, this breakout will be an overview of the key passages of Scripture from Isaiah 60 used during the Spring Celebration.

A Faith and Outreach Story (Led by Tammy Allan, 2015 Grant Recipient)

When women in our conference are involved in reaching out with the love of Christ to meet needs in local communities, the Faith & Outreach Grant can provide up to $500 of seed money for new or expanding ministries. Join grant recipient Tammy Allan as she encourages us with the amazing story of how this grant helped begin an AVA ministry in her church. Advocates for Victims of Abuse provides resources for victims of abuse, equips the church to minister to victims through workshops, seminars and training programs, and provides preventative measures against abuse. Come meet Tammy and witness how God is at work in the lives of people in this church and community.

Seeped: God’s Word on Canvas (Led by Alaina Merry)

Art is one of many expressions of worship. God, who is the master artist, paints His story in vivid color through His Word. Artist Alaina Merry will lead us in meditating on God’s Word and allowing the Spirit to lead in this comfortable and creative style of worship using paints and canvas. All supplies are provided and no painting experience is necessary.
