2nd Annual Singles Conference (Sat. Apr 18, 2015 9:00 am)

Contact Info:

Calvary Church
1730 W. Jefferson St.
Springfield, IL 62702

You are invited to the 2nd Annual Singles Conference. At the conference, we will be viewing the video series, Guardrails: Avoiding Regrets in Your Life by Andy Stanley. Andy Stanley challenges us to stop flirting with disaster and establish personal guardrails.


Guardrails. They're everywhere, but they don't really get much attention ... until somebody hits one. And then, more often than not, it is a lifesaver. Ever wonder what it would be like to have guardrails in other areas of your life- areas where culture baits you to the edge of disaster and then chastises you when you step across the line? Your friendships. Your finances. Maybe your greatest regret could have been avoided if you had established guardrails. In this bible study, Andy Stanley challenges us to stop flirting with disaster and establish some personal guardrails.


We will be covering the following sessions:

1. Direct and Protect
2. Why Can’t We Be Friends?
3. The Consumption Assumption
4. Once and for All


This will be a great time for discussion, life application, and fellowship! We will also be having a working lunch session for all single parents for encouragement and support led by Lori Kolanowski.


Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the sessions will begin at 9:00 a.m. Please call or e-mail the contacts above for more information.
