FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who will be able to attend?
Overflow is designed for women raising children on their own. If you are divorced, widowed, never married, have adopted a child without a spouse, have an incarcerated husband, are a grandmother raising grandchildren, or have a spouse stationed overseas in the military, YOU are invited to join us at Overflow. No matter how long or short you have been a single mother or how young or grown your children are, Overflow is for you!
But my situation is unique. Will this apply to me?
There are many kinds of single moms, each with a special story. We welcome any woman raising children alone, if even it has been for a short time. Our breakout sessions will consist of varied topics for women from all life situations.
Can I bring my children?
The Overflow Program and Students (middle and high school) Program will be providing an opportunity for your children - ages 2 months (vaccinations required) through high school - to worship and grow in their faith in a safe and fun environment. We are limited in space and will have to close registration for children when rooms are full. Registration is required so that we can be prepared with enough volunteers and workers to care for your children. We thoroughly screen our volunteers with background checks and provide specific training for our program. Your children will be served breakfast, lunch and snacks on Saturday. In order to allow moms time to learn, pray, connect, laugh, sing, and reflect, children are not allowed in the main sessions.
What will my children do in the Kid's Program?
Your children will be having fun! There are intentional activities planned for the entire day. They will enjoy Bible stories, crafts, games and organized play. You can relax knowing your children are cared for by our trained Kid’s Program volunteers and workers who are excited about loving your kids.
What about my Middle or High School student?
We also have a fun program for your middle or high school students led by our Bayou City Fellowship Cypress Student Ministry. Register your students under the Kid's Program and include their current school/grade. This program is designed for students entering 6th grade through exiting 12th grade.
Do your children have special needs, unique issues or allergies?
Please let us know either on the registration form or by emailing email@example.com so that we can BEST care for your child during the day! We have special partner buddies that we can assign to children with special needs so just let us know if that is something that you would like to request!
What if I register my children and they end up not being able to attend?
Please let us know as soon as possible! We understand that plans can change, and we want to be sure we are utilizing our resources and volunteers well, so please let us know if your kids end up not being able to attend by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can adjust food, workers and supplies and best utilize our budget.
What about hotel accommodations nearby the conference center?
We have blocked out some rooms at a nearby hotel. You will need to contact the hotel directly before October 11th to reserve rooms at the special conference rate and before they are all booked. As many of you live in the Houston area, it is not necessary to stay in a hotel, but these rooms are available for those of you from out of town or if you want to stay closer to the conference center.
