Time: 6:00PM to 9:30PM
Coordinator: Dorothy Oxier

Friday Night Out (FNO) has been and continues to be an excellent opportunity for parents involved in Cross Church small groups. Participate in a Small Group the weeks prior to the Friday Night Out date desired to receive childcare. Childcare is provided to individuals with children fifth grade or younger between the hours of 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Registrations must be in by midnight the Wednesday prior. Sorry, no exceptions to the rules!

With the rising costs associated with this ministry we have made the decision to charge a very small fee to reduce cost overages. This new fee will be $10 for the entire evening, per family, whether you have one child or multiple children. This means for $10 your family receives childcare from 6:00-9:30 p.m.

It is our desire to be the very best stewards we can with what God has given to us. This change will allow us to continue to offer this great opportunity to small group participants while still offering an incredible value when compared to the childcare alternatives out there today.

If you have any questions prior to registering, please email Dorothy Oxier at the Springdale Campus.

This year’s conference will feature Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times Best-selling Author and President of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Lysa is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. In “The Best Yes”, she will help you:

  • Cure the disease to please with a Biblical understanding of the command to love.
  • Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no.
  • Overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom-based decision-making process.
  • Rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your best yes today.

As president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lysa and her team saw over 4,000 women make a personal commitment to Jesus last year. They reach nearly 700,000 women daily through their online devotion, Encouragement for Today, and thousands more through the Proverbs 31 radio program playing on 1,200 radio outlets daily. In addition to speaking at Catalyst and Women of Faith, she accepts a limited number of speaking engagements at churches where she is passionate about helping women connect the messy parts of life with the miraculous hope of God.

Your day begins with a rollicking good adventure when you step into a tradition- al Irish jaunting car. Once aboard, traverse the wild Gap of Dunloe. Marvel at the red sandstone cliffs, narrow road and gorgeous lake views as you make your way through this glaciated valley to Killarney National Park. Then visit Muckross House, the Folk Mu- seum & Gardens. We will drive through the Killarney Lake District. Departing Killarney we will take a short drive to KILLORGIN on Dingle Bay, the setting for “Ryan’s Daughter.” At the east end of the peninsula we will find Macgillicuddy’s Reeks towering above the Killarney lakes and see the “Ring of Kerry”, which runs around the peninsula, keeping close to the coastline most of the way. In County Kerry we will pass through scenery of plunging cliffs and spectacular lakes, between granite mountains beaches. After Killorgin (of Puck Fair fame), the route passes Daniel O’Connell’s CAHIRCIVEEN, the fishing village of WATERVILLE and MOLL’S GAP in the heart of the Black Mountains.

Near the end of our circuit, we will arrive in the attractive town of KENMARE at the head of Kenmare Bay, founded by William Petty in 1670. One of Ireland’s most impressive stone circles, the Druid’s Circle, is on the left bank of the river Finnehy near the site of an ancient Abbey in Kenmare.

Today will be a day of beauty, history and castles! Setting off first for Adare and discover why it is called “Ireland’s prettiest village.” With its neat, thatched cottages and broad main street, Adare is likely to come closer to the romantic image of the “quaint little Irish village” than any other in the country. Picturesque Adare Manor stands on the northern edge of town. Next will be a journey to the stunning, 700-foot- high Cliffs of Moher where awe-inspiring views reveal the mighty Atlantic and the Aran Islands below. Then, travel through the Burren – a vast limestone landscape known for its stark beauty and Neolithic tombs. Upon arriving in Limerick, view the mighty King John’s Castle, a 13th century pentagonal fortress with a main block, three round corner towers, a bastion and a two-story gatehouse. In Old Irish Town, St. John’s Cathedral has the tallest tower in Ireland (280 feet). Finally on this day, step inside the beautiful Bunratty Castle for an exciting Medieval Banquet. Traditional song and dance set the scene as you enjoy this unforgettable adventure during a four-course meal.

This morning we will drive east toward Dublin, into horse racing country. We will drive across the Curragh, to visit the Irish National Stud Farm at Kildare, whose fine thoroughbreds command respect on the race courses of the world. While in Kildare, we will also visit the Museum of Horses and the Japanese Gardens. The Irish National Stud’s Japanese Gardens, renowned throughout the world and the finest of their kind in Europe, will be a delightful treat for the eyes. The gardens were created between 1906 and 1910. Among the most beloved of all Ireland’s gardens, the Irish National Stud’s Japanese Gardens are a veritable feast for the eyes and ears to behold. See the sights and hear the sounds of trickling streams perfectly complementing the greenery and vivid colors that provide a tranquil backdrop to the beautiful Bridge of Life and Tea House. Dinner will be in Dublin. You may wish to take a walk at dusk around one of the fine Georgian Squares as lights illuminate the decorated plaster ceilings.

DAY 8 Wednesday, October 8 – Dublin

Our first stop will be to the famed Saint Patrick’s Cathedral where Jonathan Swift was dean for 32 years. Built in honor of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous well where tradition has it Saint Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin. Today the Cathedral is open to all people as an architectural and historical site, but principally as a place of worship. Next will be a visit to Oscar Wilde’s Trinity College, Ireland’s oldest University. Located in the heart of Dublin City, a walk through the cobbled stones of Trinity College Dublin will bring you back to the 18th century, when the magnificent Old Library building was constructed. Inside is housed the Book of Kells - a 9th-century illuminated manuscript of the gospels - famous throughout the world. Also the first edition of Dante’s “Divine Comedy” is located here. Following will be a tour of Trinity College, we’ll drive back to city center and our hotel. In the evening you will be joined with your fellow travelers for a traditional Irish dinner and Irish Cabaret entertainment and singing. A great way to end your tour of the Emerald Isle.
