Dear Brothers,

Our joint Pastors’ Conference/Retreat will be held at the Dunrovin Retreat Center on September 13-15, 2020.  The center is located at: 15525 St. Croix Trail North, Marine on St. Croix, MN 55047  See their website for more details and directions: www.dunrovin.org/.  We will gather together to worship, study, fellowship, and relax.  Please note: registration for each person must be made online at www.welsmn.org.  You will need to pay using your bank account info (electronic transfer).

We are arranging to have Professor Allan Quist present on various aspects of Christian apologetics.  An agenda will be posted at www.welsmn.org once it is ready.    

Accommodations for this retreat include 4 meals, refreshments, snacks and 2 nights of lodging (all included in the listed rate).  There is only one choice for lodging accommodations.  Each person will get their own private room with a twin size bed and share a bathroom with several others.  For the safety of all guests, the retreat center has removed all comforters, pillows and blankets from the rooms.  You will need to provide your own linens, bedding, and towels.  Also, all guests must bring a face mask.  You will not be required to wear it when you are with the rest of our group, but will need to wear it while interacting with the retreat staff or getting coffee.  Guests are also asked to do a health self-check before their arrival.  More details about that will be sent out in the week leading up to our conference.  All meal times are scheduled for an hour in case we need to eat in two shifts.  Our group will be advised of any additional safety precautions Sunday evening.  The cost per person is  $190.00. 

→ If you have any further questions or special needs, especially dietary needs, please contact me.

What you need to do!!  1) Reserve your spot asap! Registration for each person must be made online   2) Check the box if you would like to go golfing.  We have some free time planned for Monday afternoon.  Arrangements for golfing have been made at Stillwater Oaks Golf Course.  Cost is $20 for 9 holes with a cart.

Please get your registrations completed by August 25th.  DO NOT wait until the last minute.  We need to send in partial payment for our accommodations at the beginning of September.

We plan on having fellowship both evenings with refreshments and snacks.  A variety of beer choices will be available.  You can bring additional beverages and snacks for yourself or to share.  However, please be discreet and clean up empty bottles and containers.  Thank you.  We look forward to seeing you there.

In Christ,

Martin Bentz
