Afterward, seminars will be presented, as well as certification for Track 6: Ministering to Families, of the North American Division’s Certification for Children’s Ministries. On Saturday evening, there will be a celebration with food, games and prizes to let our leaders know how much we value them. On Sunday, March 14, our attendees will be provided with several resources and ideas for doing Vacation Bible School in their church during the summer. The Adventist Book Center and AdventSource will be onsite to show attendees the resources that are available.
