Gather together with women from over 50 churches for our annual Midwest North Regional Women’s Conference! We have found that when we come together and ask for God’s heart for us as women, He is faithful to come, touch our lives, and set us free so we can experience His love and healing.
Here's what you need to know:

SPEAKERS
The keynote speakers this year are Danielle Pathak and Becca Knudsen from Mile High Vineyard in Denver, Colorado. Danielle and Becca are passionate about teaching women how to care for their souls and live abundant lives in the peace of God’s presence, rather than from a place of stress.

Everyone is responsible for their own transportation to and from Duluth. Carpooling is recommended! We will be meeting at LAVC - DL campus at 10:00 AM (PR campus at 11:00 AM) on April 4th to caravan to Duluth together. This is optional, but we would love if you would join us! If you need assistance finding a carpool or are willing to drive and don’t have a full vehicle, please email andi@myvineyardchurch.com or lauran@myvineyardchurch.com.

LODGING
We have 6 penthouses reserved at the beautiful Beacon Pointe Resort along Lake Superior. Please look at the floor plans and decide which room you would like to be in and which bed.

Please place cash or a check in an envelope, write your name and “Women’s Conference” on the front, and drop it into one of the brown tithe boxes on the walls in the lobby.
*Please note that we only have 62 spots available at Beacon Pointe Resort. Beds are filled on a first come-first served basis, so please register as soon as you are able! You are also free to stay at a different hotel if you would prefer or if all the spots at Beacon Point get filled.

Through the month of December, we are collecting donations of diapers, baby wipes, and formula to donate to two amazing agencies in Detroit Lakes. The Lakes Crisis & Resource Center offers professional assistance to those in crisis and violence-related situations. The Health Resources Center provides free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STI testing/treatment and education for pregnancy and parenting families to support them in making life-affirming choices. Donations can be dropped off at the display by the fireplace in the lobby!

Welcome Lunch & Vineyard 101

Are you new to Lakes Area Vineyard Church? Would you like to learn more about who we are as a church family? If so, we would like to invite you to take these next two steps to give you a proper welcome and some more information about who we are.

Step 1: Welcome Lunch, 12:45pm-2:00pm

The Welcome Lunch is a fun, informal opportunity to meet our pastors and staff. You will hear more about our vision and values and enjoy a lunch provided by us! Free childcare is also provided. The lunch will take place after third service in the lobby of our main building.

Please RSVP by October 7th on your Connection Card on Sunday morning, by using the LAVC app, or by emailing andi@myvineyardchurch.com if you are planning to attend so we can plan accordingly for food and childcare. Thank you and we look forward to meeting you in person soon!

Step 2: Vineyard 101, 12:45pm-3:00pm

We consider Vineyard 101 to be the next step after attending the Welcome Lunch because it goes a little more in depth about the Vineyard as a whole. We will cover the history, values, priorities and practices of the Vineyard movement and our local church. Lunch and childcare are provided!

Please RSVP by October 7th on your Connection Card on Sunday morning, by using the LAVC app, or by emailing john@myvineyardchurch.com so we can plan accordingly for food and childcare. We look forward to seeing you there!


These events will take place about every six weeks, so after you have attended a Welcome Lunch, you can attend Vineyard 101 the next time around!
