Christian Life Retreat 8-29-2021 Update

The LWML District committee that planned our Christian Life Retreat is excited to have the retreat in Pierre on September 17–18, 2021. We want everyone to be safe as possible as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. We encourage you to wear masks, wash your hands frequently, and be careful about the distance that there is between people. The committee will provide hand sanitizer and is planning to help people have appropriate social distancing. We may need to change the schedule or the arrangement at the church to try to keep people safe. Please be understanding about these measures to keep everyone safe.

If you are registered and change your mind about coming, please let me know. We will try to be fair about reimbursement.

We will also have live streaming of the Bible study so that ladies can watch from home.

We pray for God to bless this retreat, keep us safe, and help us to show the love of Jesus to our sisters of LWML. May the Holy Spirit fill our hearts as we learn more about the Psalms. Please pray daily for the work of our LWML District.

Serving Him with you,
Patt Peters
LWML South Dakota District President 2020–2024
