Saturday March 7 | 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Christ Church Oak Brook | Auditorium
Cost: $40 | Student Cost: $30

Check-in Friday evening will begin at 5:00 pm with dinner being served between 5:00 - 6:30 p.m in the Fellowship Halls. Our marketplace will also be open during the dinner hour in which you can purchase unique gifts that support under-rescourced women both locally and globally. Doors to our contemporary worship auditorium will open at 6:00 pm with the program beginning at 6:30. Please leave yourself plenty of time to check-in, eat and be in the worship auditorium for the beginning of the program (food is not permitted in our auditorium)! We are currently scheduled to wrap our evening around 9:15 p.m. 

We will resume on Saturday with a contintental breakfast served between 8:00 - 8:30 a.m (outside of the worship auditorium) with the program beginning at 8:30. In addition to the worship and speakers, we will have more time to shop, snack and enjoy meaningful conversation, as well as hear encouraging stories from a live panel of women from our own community. Please plan on staying for the duration of the morning -- you won't want to miss a thing!

Lastly, we will be collecting donations of feminine products (tampons, sanitary napkins and wipes) to support our local food pantry throughout the weekend.

All registered guests will receive a "final details" email this Thursday. Look for it in your inbox!

What is IF again? IF is a national, nonprofit organization that exists to equip women with gospel-centered resources, events, and community so they may learn more about who God is and disciple other women right where they are.

What is this year's theme?
IF:Gathering 2020 is going to focus completely, entirely on the person of Jesus. The world is spinning out like crazy and so are the insides of us, so we need the thing that is going to steady us. Across the earth, across every country and nation, we will come together for two days to ignore our feeds, the noise around us and the chaos inside of us and listen to the word of God and the voice of Jesus in our lives.

What will we do at IF:Gathering 2020?
Women from around the Western Suburbs will gather for live worship, be encouraged and challenged by some of today's most most dynamic and diverse female speakers (selected from the live IF:Gathering and streamed via video), enjoy rich conversation, a marketplace supporting under-resourced women, giveaways and more! It is a wonderful way to grow in your faith and connect with friends new and old. Registration includes dinner Friday night, breakfast Saturday morning, snacks and a welcome gift. 

To get the most out of this experience, we strongly encourage you to commit to attending both days, perhaps even grabbing some girlfriends and booking a room at a local hotel. However, we know life is busy! If your schedule permits you to attend only one of the sessions, we'd still love for you to join us. However, we are not able to offer a discount for one-day attendees.

If you'd like to serve as a volunteer, please indicate so on your registration page and our team will be in touch. If you are part of another church and would like more information, please contact Suanne Camfield, Women's Ministry Director.

If you need help with registration or have questions about logistics, please email Sherry Labate or call 630.321.3928

We are looking forward to seeing you!
