2020 Precious Moments Chapel Family Reunion Event

Carthage, MO

CANCELLED (as of July 31, 2020) see letter below

July 31, 2020

Dear Precious Moments Family,

As you are aware, due to the global pandemic the 2020 Family Reunion Event was rescheduled from June to September. As the September dates draw near, we realize the recovery process of the country, including our local Carthage community, has not been as rapid as we once hoped. Our commitment to your health and safety is paramount. After praying on this topic, His guidance led us to the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 Family Reunion Event.

While we are unable to see each other in person this year, a modified Event is made possible through our Event In A Box!

What is an Event In A Box?

Each Full Packet registrant will receive their Event Figurine, a Bingo prize, an Event pin, t-shirt and tote, event exclusive gift plus special Gift Shoppe offers, and more!
Each Guest Packet and Youth Packet will receive an Event Pin, a Bingo prize and an event exclusive gift.

When will I receive my Event In A Box?

In approximately 3 weeks, we will notify you, via mail, of when you will receive your Event In A Box goodies. If you provided an email address on your registration form, we will also email you directly. Be sure to follow us on the Precious Moments Chapel and Gift Shoppe Facebook page and watch for updates on the Events pages of PreciousMomentsChapel.org and PreciousMoments.com.

What do I need to do?

Nothing! Sit tight, our Event staff will take care of all of the details. Even though we cannot be together in person, we will still share in the fellowship and friendship of our Precious Moments family! Kindly note our Event Hotline staff is limited. Responses to messages left on the Event Hotline may be delayed.

While we are apart, let’s all join together to pray for our country, our Precious Moments family members, and for good health and safety.

Despite all of the uncertainty in today’s daily life, the Precious Moments team’s commitment to you will never change….even in the midst of a pandemic, we will give our all to delivering the very best Family Reunion Event experience possible. After all, With God We Can Do It!

Blessings, Terri and Mishell
