DES MOINES, Iowa—The 2019 GARBC Conference local committee is working hard to prepare for the association’s annual conference June 25–28. The committee, represented by eight Des Moines area churches, met on Tuesday, Jan. 8, at the conference host hotel, Holiday Inn Des Moines–Airport/Conference Center. During their meeting, the group members toured the facility, getting an overview of the intended space for the conference. The Council of Eighteen and the GARBC staff are thankful for the local committee members’ commitment to facilitating the conference. By serving others, they are demonstrating the theme of this year’s conference, “Essence of Worship.” When conferees arrive in June, you will receive a warm welcome and excellent care to make it an enjoyable experience for all ages!
