"THRIVE: Farmington Valley" Conference
Valley Community Baptist Church is honored to be hosting a two-day conference, in partnership with Vision New England and other churches in the area, September 23-24.
What is it?
Join other Christians from around the region as we gather in unity to worship together, listen to inspiring speakers, and participate in breakout sessions designed to help you and your church to THRIVE. We will unite as we hear fresh ideas and collaborate with other believers, then disperse to our local church bodies with newfound insight and inspiration.
Who can attend?
The THRIVE conference is open to everyone, regardless of whether you attend a church. Our church partners for this conference are Covenant Presbyterian (The Barn), New Life in Christ Fellowship, Valley Brook Community Church, Wintonbury Church, and Trinity Church (Tarriffville).
What's the schedule?
Friday, September 23: Worship at 7 p.m. with live music and a message from Rev. Dr. Michael David Bailey of The First Cathedral.
Saturday, September 24: We'll gather 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to hear about the issues in our communities and what the Church in Farmington Valley can do about them. You’ll hear from pastors, ministry leaders and others from various local churches.
What does it cost?
The conference is free. Lunch is provided Saturday for $7 (please select this option when you register). You can also bring your own lunch Saturday.
