Whole Woman Conference Jan. 25, 26
SoVaNow.com / January 17, 2013Final plans are under way for the eighth annual Whole Woman’s Conference on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 25, 26.
Once again this year it will be held at the Clarksville Enrichment Center on Noblin Farm Road in Clarksville.
This year’s Conference is different in both structure and length. One major difference is the way in which Conference Worship Leader, Jane Lyon, has formulated her thoughts for the sessions. In prior years, a book or books have been instrumental in conjunction with scripture as she prepared for the Conference. This year, however, it has been music in conjunction with scripture that has had that special influence. Specifically, Generations, by Sara Groves is this year’s theme song and songs from Nicole Nordeman’s CD, Brave, will be shared as part of her sessions.
“Every year we are recipients of new ‘gifts’ from different women” Lyon said. “One of this year’s ‘gifts’ is technology support bestowed to us by Mona Moody. I am so grateful for the remarkable talents of the many volunteers who help organize this Conference each year.
“We believe this year’s Conference will have a unique intensity as we will be exposing the deception and strategy of our enemy (‘lies women believe’ about ourselves and our situation)” she continued. “There is no doubt that God is present & active in the unexpected ways women are becoming aware of and are being drawn or dragged to the conference this year. My best advice is give up, give in, and ‘come and see’ for yourself!”
This year’s Conference begins on Friday at 6 p.m. with registration check-in and heavy hors d’oeuvres followed by the worship session from 7-8:30 p.m. Saturday begins with breakfast at 8 a.m. Saturday sessions begin at 9 a.m. and end at 5:30 p.m. with lunch included.
The cost for the Conference including all meals is $65. Catering is being provided by Carol’s Southern Catering. For those needing overnight accommodations, the Best Western on the Lake is providing special room rates for attendees again this year.
Registration deadline is Friday, Jan 18. Registration can be completed online or by email. For those interested in attending, full details are available online at http://www.wholewomanconference.com or by contacting Vera Jo Springer at 434-374-5256 or Elaine Senz at 434-374-2649.
