Unwasted Day is an annual one-day conference hosted by Grace City Church of the Northeast to encourage followers of Jesus to live their one short life for God’s glory and their neighbor’s good. This year’s theme, Limitations and Our Unlimited God, seeks to help Christians live wisely and well within the limits the Lord has assigned.
We’re planning three dynamic sessions with worship through song and teaching, as well as a Q&A session to wrap up the day together. At lunchtime, we hope you will enjoy stimulating conversations as we consider our weakness and God’s strength. We’d love to have you join us!

When: Saturday, May 4, from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM
Where: Grace City Church of the Northeast (8950 Ashton Rd.)
Cost: $25 thru April 21 and $30 until the day of the conference. Registration includes lunch and drinks throughout the day. Additional family members are $15 per person.
