Women, please mark your calendars for a one-day retreat on April 29,2017 at St. Mary-on-the-Lake Peace and Spirituality Center in Bellevue. This annual retreat will again be led by Pastor Van Kley and three other pastors from area churches (including former PRLC vicar, Rev. Debbie Boyce). Our theme is “The Word Made Flesh,” and we will explore it through several hands-on activities. Along with worship and presentations from the pastors, you’ll also have options to bake bread, practice yoga, study Scripture, walk the labyrinth, and much, much more! The retreat will be from 9:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and the cost is $40. Watch your bulletin for registration details in coming weeks, and contact Pastor Van Kley with questions.
