Registration for Spring Gathering Open

Freedom is around the corner! Get the tools that you need to make a ROADMAP to your own personal freedom. Get rid of those student loans. Develop and improve your relationships with your parents. Tackle that health issue you've been avoiding. This spring, challenge your own personal limitations through an interactive, insightful, and experience driven weekend.

This year, the Spring Gathering wants to help you build a Spiritual/Emotional, Financial, and Physical ROADMAP! Experienced presenters will share on aspects of Spiritual and Emotional, Financial, and Physical well being. Whether it's creating a healthier body, or a healthier marriage, we'll be talking about how to live our best life for ourselves and God. Presentations are geared towards high school through adult, but don't worry, there's plenty of fun for the whole family!

Laurel Nakai has come on board as the Young Families coordinator. Young kids will have a chance to take part in games and activities, and have a fun and safe place to stay while mom and dad check out a few of the sessions.

We're so excited to bring some fresh ideas and new content, to the place we all know and love. So mark May 19–21 as: "Shehaqua Spring Gathering: Freedom" in your calendar! Find out more about the program and activities on our facebook page. Click "Interested" or "Going" to make sure you don't miss an update! Can't wait to see you there!
