Bringing the 'IF' To Williamsburg
February 23, 2023
Beginning in 2014, “IF: Gathering” was launched in Dallas, TX. It was an all-female event talking about their beliefs in God and how to be a good disciple. The Williamsburg United Methodist Church is bringing the “IF: Gathering” to Williamsburg.
Organizer Cassie Roberts talked about the event and remarked how it changed her life when she watched it with her daughter Haley last year.
The event in Dallas for this year sold out in mere hours, and Roberts was left wondering: how can we bring this event to Williamsburg? Enter the world of virtual live streaming. The UMC Church will be hosting the event, free of charge, to any woman in the community. This will take place Friday evening from 7 to 10:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“It just helps to have women of faith in this area – and it’s great fellowship,” Roberts said.
Registration can be done online or by calling the church office. Reservations are encouraged as there will be a catered luncheon on Saturday. There will also be a light breakfast served Saturday, and snacks on both days.
“Let’s watch God move” is the theme for this year. The event hosts many breakout sessions with speakers and authors as well as musical guests.
“I want to welcome any lady to come into the fellowship as we see how exciting it is to see how God moves,” Roberts said.
