Immanuel women to host mini-retreat

Let’s think about this together during the Women’s Mini-Retreat on Saturday, April 27, at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Waterloo.

Deaconess Rosie Adle will share humor, enthusiasm, care and, most importantly, God’s Word as she leads attendees in a reflection on the bond of peace.

“...Walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” — Eph. 4:1b-3

The event is hosted by the women of Immanuel, located at 522 S. Church Street. This refreshing and renewing morning will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. and will also include a delicious breakfast and beautiful music in addition to Rosie’s inspirational message. Call 618-939-6480 or visit for more information or to preregister.

While pre-registrations are appreciated, walk-ins are always welcome too! Donations of non-perishable food items and arts/crafts supplies will be welcomed for the Bi-County Backpack Program and Christian Friends of New Americans.
