Is there a schedule of the activities planned for the weekend?
Is this a No Greater Joy event?

Who will attend?
Christian families and singles from across North America. The Shindig is a great opportunity to fellowship, build connections and friendships, and be encouraged and edified in the Lord by other like-minded families!

We are predicting a minimum 500 people.
Will singles be there?

What is the Dessert Bake Off?
Dessert Bake off will be held Saturday at 11am at the Lakeside Building. Girls ages 13-17 will enter a dessert of any sort to be judged by a panel of 10 boys within the same age group. A portion of the dessert will need to be cut into 10 separate sample size pieces for judging. The remainder of desserts will be served with the potluck meal that evening at Lakeside.
