#DCE: Reconnecting by Covenant
August 14, 2021 @ 8:45 am – 4:00 pm
All Kansas Disciples are invited to Tawakoni for our Disciples Connect and Equip regional gathering. Keynote speakers are General Minister and President Terri Hord Owens and Erin Wathen from Week of Compassion. The day’s theme will be “Reconnecting by Covenant.”
One focus for reconnecting and building for the future will be the creation of an Ebenezer, a stone tower or wall, symbolizing God’s presence in bringing us through the latest tribulations and reconnecting us in covenant. The Ebenezer is a tangible reminder of the Lord’s power and protection. To create the Ebenezer, each church is asked to bring a stone to help build our Ebenezer.
In addition to worship, workshops, and fellowship time, there will be opportunities for fun, renewal and reconnection. The pool will not be available this year. A celebration for Regional Minister Steve Martin’s 24 years of regional ministry is planned for closing worship. Steve is retiring at the end of August.
A catered sandwich boxed lunch is sponsored by Kanas Disciples Women. You will have the choice of ham, turkey, or veggie sandwich. Each box also includes chips, a cookie, and a choice of drink. Pre-registration is requested by July 31 for accurate ordering. Walk-in registrations not guaranteed requested meal choice.
Child care for children 4 years and younger will be available throughout the event. Pre-registration by July 31 is required for adequate staffing.
Limited Friday night lodging at camp is available. Event pre-registration by July 31 is required. Contact the camp office at 316-775-1222 or email [email protected] to make arrangements.
The event will also be live-streamed to the regional Facebook page for those who wish to join from afar.
