New England District LWML Fall Retreat

This Retreat is a time of fun and fellowship with guest speakers! It is not a decision making business meeting as was necessary in the Spring Rally. The Retreat will take place on Friday, November 1st to Saturday, November 2nd, at the Double Tree Hartford, 16 Ella Grasso Turnpike, in Windsor Locks, CT.  Please contact Cheryl Lowman at cheryl.cassady@yahoo.com if you are looking for a roommate/carpool situation to attend both days.  Also, if you would like to attend on Saturday only; we are hoping to arrange for carpools from the church parking lot.  This Retreat will bring refreshment for our souls, boost our spiritual growth in Christ and allow us to be part of the LWML mission focus that has and is touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of those in need.  More details will follow. 

Pastor Manor is on vacation…from Tuesday – Thursday this week, returning on Friday.  If you are in need of pastoral care in his absence, please contact Pastor Mongeau, the church office, or one of the elders.
