"Inside Out" is the theme for the 2012 Old Fort Church's women's conference. This year's event is slated for a.m.-2 p.m. Sept. 22 in the Great Hall at Heidelberg University. Registration and a light breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m. Music and worship are to open the conference at 9 a.m. Conference team member Nola Murray is to give an overview of Morrison House, the agency that is to receive proceeds from the conference.
The keynote speaker is Erin Alice, wife of Pastor John Alice, and mother of five children. She is to expand on the conference theme, which is based on Psalm 139: "Oh Lord, you have searched me and you know me." Testimony by a church member is to follow her talk.
