As a deacon at Redeemer, I get to help out with all kinds of things.

Three times, one of those things was the annual Redeemer Women's conference, which is scheduled for November 13-14 this year. I haven't helped at this one yet. But I will be.

I've helped cook. I've helped clean. I've run around looking for what needs done and I've sat behind the sound booth for a few sessions.

Every time, I felt weird being a dude in my mid-twenties hanging out at a women's conference, trying to serve and stay out of the way. But every time I've learned something, something either spoken or in service.

We try not to do a bunch of event stuff on the blog these days. But every once-in-awhile, we've got something we really want to make sure people know is happening. And since the registration deadline is this Sunday (November 7), we wanted to plug it one last time before we finally shut up about it.

So, like I said, I'll be running around this year, too. And while I try to be invisible, I'm looking forward to eavesdropping just a little bit; your speaker this year, Kendra Dahl, is coming in from North Dakota (read about her here and here), and will be digging into Romans 8 and how we are set free in Christ.

So ladies, if you haven't done so, sign up for the women's conference.

All the details are right here, including how to sign up. If you'd rather do so in person, you can sign up Sunday morning, but don't forget, because, again, Sunday's the deadline.

One last thing: Don't let money be an issue for you, because it's not an issue for us. We want every woman that wants to be there to be there. Just let us know, and we'll work something out to make sure that you're there. Remember that because of Jesus, you can ask for help without letting your need define you.

And men, (Dads, in particular) take the kids to free Mom up for a couple days. Or, you can sign up on the City if you're available to help out with set-up / clean-up or meals. Older kids are welcome to help out, too!

Again, the registration deadline is this coming Sunday, (November 7), so don't forget to sign up.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
