About the 2015 Families for God Weekend

Our theme this year is "God's Family Dynamics" and will feature a Bible study, Sabbath Services and one dynamic, interactive workshop. In addition to our signature teen prom, "City Lights," we will also host an entertaining game show for the young and young-at-heart, a delectable festive dinner, a refreshing ice cream social, and a family outing at the ever-popular Nickelodeon Universe Park at the Mall of America.

The beautiful Minneapolis Marriott Northwest will again provide an upscale setting for hundreds of brethren who will enjoy specials and discounts in an all-suite environment with a complementary hot breakfast every morning for those who staying at the hotel.

We are pleased to offer a family cap of $100 for Saturday night's dinner and/or prom (for parents and their minor children). Postmark your registration by March 1 to participate in the various activities!

God's Family Dynamics

Activities

In an effort to make the signature weekend as memorable and festive as possible, a beautiful hotel setting was chosen to again serve as a safe haven for our families. In close cooperation with the Marriott, we are pleased to offer the suites as well as each of the catered meals at significant savings over the regular, customary rates. Also, we are encouraged by the compassion and generosity of brethren serving one another by contributing to those who would otherwise not be able to participate in the meals and activities. As we follow the example of the early church, let’s “continue in the Apostles’ doctrine, and fellowship, and breaking of bread, and prayers.” (Acts 2:42) The weekend’s activities will provide ample opportunity to do so.

Location & Housing

Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel

Due to popular demand and wonderful feedback from last years' participants, we are excited to return to the all-suite, Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel (7025 Northland Drive North, Brooklyn Park, MN 55428).

The suites comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests at a most attractive price of $99 per night (plus tax) including a hot breakfast to meet our special dietary needs. The price includes 4 breakfasts per suite. Couples are encouraged to donate their extra tickets to large families staying at the hotel.

The hot breakfast includes: scrambled eggs with cheese; turkey bacon or turkey sausage; fresh sliced fruit, assorted cereal, 2% milk and chocolate milk; orange juice; assorted breakfast breads served with butter and preserves, cinnamon and sugar, coffee and decaffeinated coffee.

We have asked the hotel to set aside 40 suites and we encourage the brethren to stay at the hotel, as many activities run late into the night! Let’s plan to spend extra time together, having our lodging in the evening just steps away from our fellowship!

Please call 1-888-236-2427 by March 1 (subject to availability after that date) and mention group code "United Church of God" to guarantee this special rate.
