The deadline to sign up for the Student Ministries trip to the Planet Wisdom Conference is Friday, November 23. Families with students in grades 7-12 who are interested in going should notify Student Ministry Coordinator Kyle Helder. He can be reached at or via cell phone at 651-285-3613.

The Planet Wisdom Conference is scheduled for the weekend of November 30 - December 1 at Grace Church in Minneapolis. The theme for this year's conference is titled "Relate: Biblical Wisdom on Relationships." Featured speakers include Mark Matlock, Crystal Kirgiss, Heather Flies and The Skit Guys. The Digital Age will provide music for worship.
The conference consists of five sessions. Two sessions will be held Friday, November 30, with three sessions on Saturday, December 1. Among the topics that will be covered include looking at horizontal relationships with parents, friends, future spouses and the church.

Helder said that there has been a change in the event schedule. The group will not be going to the Water Park of America on Sunday. Instead, the group will eat at the Mall of America Saturday night after the conference and return to Sioux Falls late that night.

"I have had multiple parents say that because students will have to miss school on Friday that it would be good for them to be back Saturday night so they can make sure their homework is done on Sunday," Helder said. "But we still are going to have fun and make sure that there are fun elements included in the trip."

The cost of the trip is $130 per person. That cost could decrease if there is no need to rent a van. This cost includes registration for the conference, meals, lodging and transportation.

Helder indcated that the group will leave from the Sycamore Center at 1 p.m. on Friday, November 30.
