We are looking forward to the Women Of Joy Conference again this year! This is a spiritual weekend getaway only for the ladies. The theme this year is OVERWHELMED. Your job...your to-do list... your family... your life... It can all cause us to be so OVERWHELMED! This theme, OVERWHELMED, is based on Psalm 61:2, "...when my heart is OVERWHELMED; lead me to the rock that is higher than I." I hope you'll join us as we find His peace in the middle of the chaos, set aside the worries of the world, and become OVERWHELMED by the love of Jesus Christ!
It will be in Pigeon Forge, TN, Friday, Oct. 4, to Sunday, Oct. 6, at the LeConte Center. We will be staying at the EconoLodge Riverside 2440 Parkway, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863. This conference sells out early every year and we were fortunate to have purchased 20 tickets!
The cost for the conference and hotel is $270. This includes the conference tickets and hotel accommodations. You can register and pay on the Vive Church App by clicking on "events" then scroll down to find "WOJ 2019". Make your initial deposit of $90 which will hold your spot. Then you can make payments of $45 over the next 4 months. The balance is due August 17! Should you decide to cancel, a refund of monies you've already paid can be refunded up until 45 days before the event; however, $25 of that first payment will be non-refundable.

The dress code for the conference is very laid back and casual, very much like what you'd wear to Vive. Wear comfortable shoes for walking around at the conference center, and/or if you go shopping, and/or if you go walking around town. Bring your swimsuit for free time in the pool/hot tub at the hotel.
We will carpool along to Pigeon Forge so if you are interested in driving please let me know how many people your vehicle will safely accommodate. If you are not driving then we suggest you give the driver of the vehicle you ride in $10 towards gas money.
