National Family Conference
Lake Williamson Conference Center
August 2-5, 2017
We all know the great cities of the world—London, Rome, Shanghai, Bogota, Charleston — but have your ever heard of Carlinville, IL?
What is in Carlinville? Lake Williamson Christian Conference Center, which will host the Growing Families 2017 Family and Alumni Conference, (August 2-5, 2017). We emphasize the word “family” because, unlike anything we’ve planned in the past, this conference center can house everyone in one place with motel-style rooms and full RV hookup sites. Sitting just one-hour Northeast of St. Louis, this lovely conference ground contains incredible onsite fun amenities.
Similar to past conferences, mornings are set aside for parent and leadership training while the children receive age-appropriate lessons corresponding to our conference theme. Afternoons are a time for our families to mingle and enjoy the many lakeside activities, including swimming, boating, fishing, zip line and an incredible water slide. There are more options, including an indoor or outdoor pool, rock wall climbing or the incredible high ropes course. Outside the conference center, you might have an interest in visiting the quaint little township of Carlinville or play a round of golf on the municipal course. After sharing dinner together, parents will regroup for additional teaching, while children enjoy some fun activities with their Children Program leaders.
The entire conference will be a family experience you, and your children will be talking about for years to come.
