Update: Winter Family Weekend
November 10, 2011
A very lively organizational meeting was held last Sunday in preparation for the United Church of God Winter Family Weekend. We began with discussing the purpose of the WFW and took suggestions on solidifying our mission statement for it. We had many valuable contributions. You’ll see the finished mission statement shortly.
We are excited to host this event in the Cincinnati area at the Great Wolf Lodge. Reservations are coming along nicely. Please be sure to register at wfw.ucg.org to ensure you have a room at the Great Wolf Lodge. If you are interested, an additional housing location that we are using is the King’s Island Resort, which is across the street.
We are thrilled to know that all is coming together nicely. We will soon be announcing the seminar titles and presenters, as well as the times and locations of all events. Recently, we were able to secure for Monday and Tuesday an additional sporting facility for flag football, speedaway and soccer. It will be just across the parking lot from our main sports facility being used for basketball and volleyball. These sporting facilities are a mere 5 miles from Great Wolf Lodge, so travel will not be time-consuming to and from the sport facilities and the Lodge.
Three dances are being planned and we will announce their themes shortly. Two will take place on Saturday evening. Sunday evening is the free pizza and drinks at the Family Fun Night with the Waterpark. Games for all ages will be organized for those who do not go to the Waterpark.
To assist in our planning, please go online and register for the events as well as for your lodging so we may have an accurate count of who is attending each activity. Please note, you can also volunteer to help with a number of activities, so please login and check the boxes for any areas where you can serve. This will be very helpful.
We have over 30 staff and their assistants eager to help you have a great experience and build strong relationships in a godly and positive atmosphere.
We look forward to seeing you on December 23-27!
