Singles Conference Questions and Answers

What happens if I need to cancel?
Family Life has a "no refunds" policy for all of our events. However, you can transfer your registration to someone else (and have them pay you). If you do this, it needs to be a person of the same gender and Family Life must be notified of the change by the registration deadline of February 3, 2020.

I would love to attend the conference, but my finances are tight, I am not sure I can afford the registration cost. Is there financial help available?
There is a scholarship fund available to help singles who cannot afford the conference. The scholarship fund is the result of a collections that have been taken at previous singles conferences. Singles who have been blessed by the weekend, have generously given so that others and experience what they have. Most of the scholarships are partial scholarships, we do ask that the scholarship recipients have a personal investment into the weekend. There is also an application process. Deadline to apply for a scholarship is November 30, 2018. To find out more about the scholarship program and to get an application, call Debbie Fero at 800-927-9083 or email Debbie.

What time does the conference start and end?
The doors open for check-in at 5:30 pm on Friday. The conference begins at 7:00 pm. We will dismiss at approximately 12:30 PM on Sunday. The Sunday schedule has a later breakfast and lunch is not included in the conference.

What do I need to bring?
Bring your Bible, a pen, a toiletry kit, a box of tissues, an alarm clock, a flashlight to use in the parking lot and an open heart in which God can work. The conference center provides towels, linens and blankets (extras are available for the asking).

Will the speakers all be single like me? Our main goal for speakers is to find people who are good communicators, grounded in the truth of God's Word and have a heart for singles. We always have some workshop leaders who are single and some who are married. However, most of the team who plans the conference are single adults.

I don't do well sharing a room with someone else. Can I have a single room?
In order to take advantage of all of the available beds at Watson and accommodate everyone who wants to attend the conference, there will be no single occupancy rooms available. We will be happy to put you in a room with a roommate who is about the same age. If you need to have a private room, you can register as a commuter and check out these hotel options.

What type of clothes should I bring?
Dress is relaxed and casual for the entire weekend. Keep in mind that since the conference is in the winter, some of the rooms may be a bit chilly. If you have a tendency to be cold, bring a sweater or sweatshirt for your comfort. Bring warm clothing if you wish to do any outside activities. You may need to walk outside to get to some of the sessions or activities.

Will there be others there my age? I don't want to be the only (__young, __middle-aged, __senior) there.
Every year there has been a nice mix of ages representing all the decades. (i.e. 20's, 30's, 40's and so on through the 60's). However, our largest number of singles who attend are typically between the ages of 40 to 60.

Will there be anyone else who doesn't know anybody there? I think it would be good for me but I guess I'm a little nervous about a weekend with strangers.
The conference is a great place to go and meet new people. Many participants bravely come not knowing a soul and make wonderful new friends of both genders.
