FAQ

What is this year's theme?

There is a sense of “coming home” that we all long to experience. Sometimes we have achieved this with our family of origin—coming home being what we hope it will be. Others of us have rarely experienced this. Have you found your home? Are you settled and know where you belong? Christianity says that followers of Jesus are sojourners and orphans in this world, but we are also promised a better home, both now and in the future. Come learn more about finding this place of home.
