    09:45 - 10:45 Main Hall
    How many times have you sung these words: "And now, O God forsake me not, when I am old and gray"? Have you ever reversed the words in your mind and prayed: "And now that I am old and gray, O God help me never forsake you"? The reward is to those who endure to the end. Let's explore this vital subject.
     
  • "Resumes, Interviews, & Careers, Oh My!" - Tanya Winger (Teens and Young Adults)
    09:45 - 10:45 Crown Zellerbach
    Tips on successfully entering the job market. Whether your 12 or 20, you probably been wondering how to enter the land of grownups and have the job of your dreams. In this seminar, you will learn valuable tips on making the perfect resume, shinning like a rock star in your interviews, and accepting an offer from your future employer. Don't miss it!
     
  • "Approval Addiction" - Fred Reeves (Family)
    11:00 - 12:00 Main Hall
    During this interactive presentation we will discuss the topic of "Approval Addiction". * What is it? * Why is it a problem? * How do I know if I'm addicted and if I am, how can I overcome it? * Who in the scriptures suffered from it? We will have a handout, which is a self survey to help open your eyes to characteristics that can be indicative of "Approval Addiction". You will have 15 minutes to complete the survey and scored to determine your level of addition. You will find this presentation interesting, revealing and thought provoking!
     
  • "Caregiving: Helping Others Remain Steadfast to the End" - Roc Corbett (Family)
    11:00 - 12:00 Crown Zellerbach
    Caregiving is a labor of love. Are you a caregiver, perhaps for a family member or a close friend? Or, do you have a close friend who is a caregiver for someone else? If so, you know that serving in this way can often be physically, emotionally and spiritually difficult. Though given in love, long-term caring for another is real "labor." It is good labor, with great potential for rewards, but sometimes caregivers need encouragement and support to help them to remain spiritually strong while continually giving the care a loved one needs. It's important for caregivers to be spiritually strong, because often it is the caregiver's faith that helps the one who needs care to remain spiritually steadfast, even as they face their greatest trials. Would you benefit from a discussion of biblical principles about caregiving? Do you have some wisdom to share, perhaps gained through experience, about how to remain spiritually steadfast while facing such trials of long duration, and how to help others to do so as well? In this interactive seminar we will consider spiritual principles about caregiving, focusing on the following passages: 2 Cor. 1:3-7; 1 Cor. 12:25-26; Gal. 6:9-10; 1 Thes. 3:1-3; 1 Cor. 15:58; and more. Perhaps you can share a verse that helps sustain you in your service to others. Our goal is that we may realize and comprehend more fully that caregivers who are spiritually strong can help others remain steadfast to the end.
     
  • "The African Work" - Paul Moody (Family)
    13:30 - 14:30 Main Hall
    This will be a slideshow presentation focusing on our brethren in the English speaking regions of West Africa. Ghana and Nigeria provide opportunities for those who have an interest in serving our fellow brethren in that part of the world. We are all God's people, sharing in a common calling, and endeavoring to remain steadfast to the end. This presentation will provide glimpses into everyday life in West Africa.
     
  • "The Dispersion of the Apostles" - Rex Sexton (Family)
    14:45 - 15:45 Main Hall
    "Where did the Twelve Apostles go"? Church Historians provide some clues, traditions, folklore, and indications as to where these men went as they brought the Gospel message to the world. Join us as we make an effort to discern fact from fiction and follow the trails they left behind.
     
  • "Youth Corps Projects and Opportunities" - Ben Light (Family)
    14:45 - 15:45 Crown Zellerbach
    In the world today, our culture rejects any sort of absolute truth. It operates on situational ethics, and what is right depends on the situation. Most people have a price - a certain place in their mind where the reward is enough to fudge on their morals. Our God is a God of Integrity, He desires His people to be the same, to be steadfast... immovable. To be a rock unwilling to compromise on what is true. Are we Steadfast and Immovable?
