The Lake Geneva Summer Conference presents you with the perfect opportunity to grow in your Christian walk. All week long you'll be learning daily from the Bible on a variety of topics that affect us all, helping you to integrate your faith with your daily life.
Nursery services are provided for infants so parents can go to the teaching services while a series of age-appropriate classes are available for pre-school kids up through teens. You can relax knowing your kids are well looked-after and having fun while learning Biblical truths.
