This first event will be held at the Aqueduct Conference Center just outside the city of Chapel Hill from 10am-3pm. Lunch will be provided. The cost for this event is $15 per person or $10 per person for churches who have three or more attending. Registration deadline is Oct. 31. Call the UMF office to reserve your spot at 800-555-4718 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information can be found on the UMF website.
