Cross Church of Northwest Arkansas invites you to attend the 2014 NWA Women’s Conference "The Best Yes", on August 24, at our Pinnacle Hills Campus in Rogers, Arkansas. This year’s conference will feature Lysa Terkeurst, New York Times Best-selling Author and President of Proverbs 31 Minisries. 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.

Conference Price

Adults - $25
Students (thru college) - $10

LysaAbout Lysa

Only 1% of books ever sell over 100,000. Yet Lysa’s last four books have done that. Lysa TerKeurst is the New York Times best-selling author of Made to Crave and Unglued as well as 15 other titles. 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. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, Art, their five kids, three dogs and a mouse that refuses to leave her kitchen.

Friday Night Out - FAY Friday Night Out - FAY Sep 5th 2014 - Dec 5th 2014

Time: 6:00PM to 9:30PM
Coordinator: Jill Langham

This is an opportunity for parents to re-connect with each other on Friday nights. Participate in a Small Group the weeks prior to the Friday Night Out date desired to receive a voucher for childcare. Childcare is provided to individuals with children fifth grade or younger between the hours of 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Follow the instructions on your voucher to register your children. 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 Jill Langham at the Fayetteville Campus.

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.
