Friday & Saturday, February 6th & 7th
The “IF Gathering” is an annual gathering where thousands of women from all over the world gather in Austin to examine their lives in the bigger context of God’s story, to study the bible together, and to be in community with each other. It’s a fresh, deep, honest space for a new generation of women to wrestle with the essential question: “IF God is real… THEN what?” This 2-day gathering brings women together to focus on how to live out the calling God has placed on our lives.
Watch this 90 second introductory video.

These four, unforgettable, three hour sessions will be rich in testimony, rich in scripture, and will plunge the participant into pursuit of an answer to the group’s signature question, “IF God is real…THEN what?” (each session is unique...there are no repeats)

February through May 2015
If you’d like to enjoy food, fellowship and fun with others from our church community in a small-group setting, read on:
The “DINE IN” groups consist of 8 individuals (couples or singles) who will share meals in each other’s homes with the HOST couple providing the Entrée, and each guest bringing something to share, veg, salad, dessert, bread, appetizer. They will set their own dates through mutual contact and consultation and meet once a month.
The "DINE OUT" option works by having 6 people (Couples/Singles) matched up, and they pick the restaurant they want to go to and set their own schedules just like the “Dine out” groups (or “DINNERS FOR EIGHT”...or the short version “D-4-8”.
To register, simply complete this form. For more info, contact Ken or Bonnie Moyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
