2018 Women's Conference


Friday evening, October 26 & Saturday, October 27
$30 until October 22
$40 after October 22 and at the door

Please join us this year for our annual Women's Conference for a chance to come together to worship God, sit under Spirit-inspired teaching, and rededicate our lives to loving, serving, and glorifying God.

This year we have the blessing of hosting special guest speaker Kate Merrick, wife to Britt Merrick, and the founders and pastors of Reality Church in Carpinteria, CA. We are so grateful for Kate’s love for God and ministry to women. Her beautiful life message is overcoming life’s losses, embracing God’s healing touch, and returning to the “Joy of the Lord being her strength.”

We invite you to set aside the time to attend this two-day conference, and focus on seeking God, waiting on His guidance, and fellowshipping with other sisters who are doing the same thing. There is much comfort and encouragement in harmony and unity, like “precious anointing oil and as refreshing as the dew" (Ps. 133). We look forward to coming together with like-minded sisters in Christ and being touched and refreshed.

This conference is open to the women in our church, as well as to women in the surrounding community.

Kate Merrick is a writer, speaker, pastor's wife, mama of a teenager and toddler, surfer, part-time cowgirl, and self-proclaimed chicken whisperer. She is married to Pastor Britt Merrick and they live in Carpintaria, California, where they founded the Reality family of churches. In 2013 she endured the death of her daughter, Daisy Love, after suffering through cancer treatment for three and a half years. Kate is making her way back toward laughter and is finding life to be filled with good things.
 More than a million followed Daisy's journey and fight for life on, where you can read old posts, watch Daisy's memorial, and get to know the Merrick family. After Daisy's passing, Kate was silent for three years in grief and contemplation. She now blogs at with fresh perspective and newfound freedom to be sentimental or silly or anywhere in between.

Worship By: Krystal Craven

This year we're very blessed to have Krystal Craven joining us from Calvary Chapel Walnut Creek to lead us in worship. Krystal has a soothing yet powerful quality to her voice and a genuine heart for worshipping Jesus that naturally draws listeners toward a posture of worship.
