Catch the Vision: 2017 Global Missions ConferencePosted: 06/10/2017
This year, the Global Missions Committee is excited to have not one, but two internationally known guest speakers at the Global Missions Conference. Our prayer is that hearing from them will inspire you to participate in global missions yourself. Join us. Catch the Vision.

Catch the Vision: Catch the Adventure
Children are very much a part of this year's conference. While it may seem impossible to reach the entire world with the message of Jesus, boys and girls don't have to do it alone. Properly equipped and relying on the strength of the Holy Spirit, Mission: Impossible becomes Mission: Possible! We'll have a children's track teaching the same messages the adults are hearing. Children have their own registration form. Please use the button below.
International Friendship & Food Festival
Having fed your mind and spirit, feed your body with delicious and unique food from around the world! And while you’re at it, make some new friends with internationals from around the globe living right here in Baton Rouge. Our International Friendship friends and partners, along with some members of First Presbyterian, will provide exotic food from Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. Come hungry, and enjoy a relaxing time getting to know these wonderful guests of our country!
Children may be picked up from their workshop at noon and join parents for lunch. Parents whose children will not care for the international food are welcome to pack a lunch.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 19
The conference is free but we do need to know how many children and adults will attend. Appropriate registration buttons are below. Please register by August 14.
