You won’t want to miss this ONE NIGHT ONLY event for middle and high school girls!
Purpose will be jam-packed with incredible worship, interactive games, awesome food trucks, and all things beauty related with featured guest and certified aesthetician Emma Blow. Join us as we hear from keynote speakers Mary Margaret West and Lexi Shipp as they bring the Word, providing girls with an opportunity to engage with God’s truth in relation to their purpose. Each girl who registers will receive a take-home bag full of beauty and skin care goodies and a list of small group questions to go through with their mom, group leader, friends, or small group after the conference! Run, don’t walk…the first 100 girls who register will also receive a free t-shirt!
(If your group is among the first 100 to register, we will contact you closer to the event to request t-shirt sizes. Additional t-shirts will be available for purchase at the event.)
In our desire to keep everyone safe and comply with all regulations, we will adhere to all current COVID-19 protocols at the time of the event.
