With WinterFest just a few days away, here are the details you need for travel and packing.

Travel information
This year we're not taking a charter bus to WinterFest, but are opting for a 15-passenger van and minivan. How awesome is that?!

We're meeting at church at 2:45 this Friday in order to pack and get on the road by 3.  We will be stopping for dinner on the way, so pack a sandwich or bring cash for that.

Sunday, we're shooting to be back to church between 5 and 6, depending on when the last worship session ends. We will stop for a meal during that trip as well, so bring cash for that.

Weather for the weekend looks to be in the low 40's, with possibly some snow on Saturday and rain on Sunday. Pack some good shoes and a winter coat that can handle rain, along with a hat and gloves. Layers are a good way to handle cold outside and warm in the chapel area.

Bring your own bedding, shower stuff, Bible, journal, and water bottle. And make sure you have cash for food on the drives and some extra for WinterFest gear if you want.

Feel free to bring games to play in the car or books to read.
