Please make 60 items of Agapé for each weekend. Take them to the Chrysalis weekend to be distributed. If you can't make it to the flight, please coordinate with the agapé chair on how to get it to the weekend!
Here are some ideas - please feel free to be creative and think of some of your own ideas! Agapé will be distributed in the conference and dining rooms. Please do not use loose glitter on agape - only glitter that is pre-mixed with glue. This saves cleanup headaches!
Personal Agape - If you wish to give your caterpillar or pilgrim personal agape, please do so on the ride home. Table agape is an expression of unconditional love, therefore personal names are not attached. However, Reunion Group or Church names are welcomed.
