Singles Conference Questions and Answers
What time does the conference start and end?
The doors open for sign-in at 5:30 pm on Friday. The first session begins at 7:00 pm. We will dismiss at approximately 12:30 PM on Sunday. Sunday 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 and an open heart in which God can work. The conference center provides towels, linens and blankets.
Will the speakers all be single like me? Our main goal for speakers is to find people who are 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.
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 will need to be notified of the change by the registration deadline of February 6, 2017.
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.)
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.
