AbideCR is a collaborative effort of the churches and leadership community of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We're united in our desire to see the glory of the gospel's impact in our city and beyond. Pastors, worship leaders, guest speakers, breakout session leaders, and teams of volunteers are represented from the following organizations:
The Abide Room is an on-site designated space where you can "just be" in the presence of God. It's a place to process, to pray, maybe write in a journal, meditate in His Word, or simply rest in any way that you choose. You can expect low lighting, space to spread out, soft music, and visual artists quietly creating work inspired by the Spirit. The Abide Room provides a safe, welcoming place in which you can seek a personal connection with God in a way that feels comfortable to you.
Your AbideCR ticket gives you full access to all guest speaker sessions, worship times, break-out experiences, The Abide Room, two catered meals, and a "swag bag" with AbideCR goodies.
The AbideCR Team would like to thank Groundswell Cafe, the Hip-stir, and Crumbl Cookies for their food and beverage partnership this year.
We've created an Abide Guide to help you get into the right mindset for abiding. This four-page PDF contains some thoughts, practices, and Scripture references that will help you in the lead-up to AbideCR. It's a free download; we recommend spending some time working through the Abide Guide material in the days before the conference. Is it required? No. Will it enrich your time at AbideCR? Very likely.
Yes! It's our honor to lift you up in prayer!
The AbideCR Team is united in prayer for the conference in general, for each attendee by name, and for the greater community of believers. If you have a specific prayer request, please drop us an email so our prayer team can lift up your need specifically.
Prayer changes things, and the AbideCR Team has been bathing every aspect of the conference in ongoing prayer -- we're honored to have you join us.
