Mountain Sky welcomes volunteers to assemble GC2019 welcome kits

February 12, 2019
Mountain Sky volunteers and friends are gearing up to offer radical hospitality at GC2019. Groups throughout the conference are assembling welcome bags to greet all attendees of the Special Session outside the convention center in St. Louis. These bags include conversations starters to help strangers engage in dialogue with someone new, candy and a welcome card. These will encourage people to “Pass the Peace of Christ” while forming relationships that embody God’s perfect love. Through this love we can cast out fears and open up new possibilities during this time of Holy Conferencing.
Ready to assemble kits? Here's how:
  1. Invite a group within the church (youth, UMW, Sunday school) or the whole congregation to participate in this project. Kit assembly should take place the week of Feb. 11 to 18.
  2. Produce 50 to 75 kits per group or church.
  3. Each kit is comprised of:
