2021 Inspire FAQ
What is the new format for Inspire? Inspire 2021 will take place on March 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Because of health regulations, lunch will not be served. We are excited about the new format which includes simulcast elements and live elements. Worship with Cory and Stephanie and teaching with Lori will be simulcast on the day of the event to all locations. Live elements include Inspire emcees and a live panel discussion. In addition, you will enjoy opportunities for meaningful conversations with women at your location while following health and safety guidelines.
Why multiple locations? In order to provide a safe environment for the women of Arkansas, we are offering Inspire at multiple locations around Arkansas. Please feel free to register for the location you desire. We are excited about reaching more women as we spread out to destination cities across Arkansas.
Will Inspire offer a safe environment? In keeping with the recommendations of the Arkansas Department of Health, we ask that masks be worn to and throughout the event. The host church will make sure the environment is clean and sanitized.
What does the registration cover? The price you pay covers an Inspire bag of resources, a pre-packed snack, and a bottle of water.
When is the deadline to register for Inspire? Please register as soon as possible so we can be ready to serve you. The last day to register is Monday, March 8th. However, each location has a capacity size due to social distancing. If we sell out at a particular location, we will post that information on the Website.
Is childcare available? Childcare is not available at Inspire.
Can you tell me about the ministry project? We are partnering with Arkansas WMU for our 2021 ministry project. This year we are collecting money for Pure Water, Pure Love. All money donated will help missionaries provide clean water as well as the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Give directly to the ministry project through the Pure Water, Pure Love website or on the day of Inspire at the registration table. Check out all the details at www.absc.org/inspire
