Inside United: Realtime

Exciting News & Updates from UCGIA

Fun & Fellowship in the Twin Cities during Days of Unleavened Bread!

February 23, 2014


Please make plans now to join United Church of God families from all over the U.S. at our 17th annual Families for God weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which will be held on the weekend between the Spring Holy Days, April 18 through 21.

Our theme this year is “The Hearts of the Fathers” from Malachi 4:6, and will feature exciting sermons, Bible studies and interactive workshops, with our special guest, Beyond Today presenter Steve Myers.

In addition to our signature teen prom, “Masquerade Ball,” we will also host a fun game show for the young and young-at-heart, a delectable festive dinner, a refreshing ice cream social, an open mic jam session, a young adult activity, and an optional family outing at the ever-popular Nickelodeon Universe Park at the Mall of America.

The weekend will be capped off with two services on the Last Day of Unleavened Bread.

The beautiful Minneapolis Marriott Northwest will again provide an upscale setting for hundreds of brethren who will enjoy specials and discounts in an all-suite environment with a complementary hot unleavened breakfast every morning for those who book rooms.2014FfGProm2

  • Saturday Festive Dinner, Fun Game Show & Open Mic Jam Session: After sunset, we will host a fun game show for the young and young-at-heart, followed by an open mic jam session. So, bring your instruments!
  • Saturday Teen Dinner & Prom: Calling all teens ages 13 – 19 (plus 12-year-olds who will turn 13 in 2014) to this year’s prom themed: “Masquerade Ball.” We expect over 50 teens to join in this memorable event, which includes honoring our graduating seniors. Each participant will receive a decorative mask upon arrival!
  • Saturday Late Night Young Adult Activity: A late evening of fun at Grand Slam in Coon Rapids: After the ice cream social, we will head to Coon Rapids until midnight and enjoy unlimited multi-level laser tag, unlimited mini-golf, unlimited crazy cars, four arcade tokens and one batting cage token. This active late evening is all the more fun with friends to enjoy it with! Since this activity is not at the hotel, every attempt to coordinate rides will be made.
