2016 Winter Family Weekend
It all begins on Friday, Dec. 23, with a Bible study at 7:30 p.m. and runs through the family dance on Tuesday night, Dec. 27. That’s right—the 2016 Winter Family Weekend in Louisville is not far off! It is a real highlight for our Church families over the winter break. Each year 1,000 or more people gather for four days of fun and fellowship, education and relaxation, athletics, music and family togetherness.
This year’s theme is “Faith and Hope in a Troubled World.” God’s promises about our destiny and mankind’s future give our lives great meaning during troubling times. Jesus Christ stated in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Although we live in a world that is anything but peaceful, with the help of God’s Holy Spirit we can experience a great deal of inner peace. Most people today do not grasp this peace and understanding, but as Jesus Christ makes clear, He provides peace as no one else can. Please make plans to join us and hear numerous messages covering this encouraging topic.
We’ll post full details for this year’s event—including daily schedules, seminar titles, dance themes, sports sign-ups, as well as where to register and when and where to make reservations—following the Feast of Tabernacles at http://members.cogwa.org/wfw.
We hope you are able to join us for all or part of the 2016 Winter Family Weekend. If you have never been, give it a try. By the end of your stay, you’ll find yourself telling others that you are definitely coming back again next year!
