Housing for out of town visitors will be handled differently than in years past. All teen boys will be staying at the Alkire Road church building Friday night. All teen girls will be staying with individual members of the Alkire Road congregation. If you plan on staying with us Friday night, we ask that you call us as soon as possible with an estimated number of people who need accommodations. Those needing housing should bring a sleeping bag, pillow and other amenities necessary to stay overnight, You may contact Sharon Justus at (614)277-0305 or (614)309-5684 for housing arrangements. If your group would rather stay in a motel we have found some local places and have provided an estimate of their nightly rates. We have included this information, along with a map and driving directions on this site.
We look forward to fun and fellowship with you this year!
