Chartering a bus for Columbus 09?
Local charter bus agencies are ready for your business! Make your reservations soon with the company of your choice as the high number of persons traveling from southeastern Pennsylvania in particular may make buses hard to find closer to the summer gathering dates. Don’t have enough persons to fill a bus? If you are interested in connecting with other churches who might be traveling, Franconia Conference is willing to broker those relationships and connections. If you’d like to travel by bus, but can’t fill your own, contact Melissa Landis at Franconia Conference at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registrations for Columbus have begun in full force with numbers expected to exceed last year’s gathering at San Jose by the hundreds (maybe thousands). Register and make your travel plans soon!
