About the word ConneXion: John Wesley developed what he called "connexion," an interlocking system of classes, societies, and annual conferences. We use the word in honor of our Wesleyan heritage.
This event is at Coon Rapids United Methodist Church on the north side of the Twin City area. There are several housing options. You can commute ($75), stay with a church member who has offered space ($100), stay at a local hotel with a roommate ($150) or in a single room ($195).
