Saturday morning, March 7:  Ladies, come enjoy a brunch and hear from women who are serving around the world. This event is sponsored by Women on Mission (WOM). Gentlemen, while the ladies are enjoying their time together at the church, join our male conference guests at The Main Event for bowling and lunch.
