ALL PLANNED 2020 CONFERENCE AND SYNOD-WIDE WOMEN’S EVENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED OR POSTPONED
Due to recommended precautions re: preventing the spread of Coronavirus, all events initially planned for 2020 remain cancelled or postponed. This includes our 2020 Convention/Gathering planned for October 2020 at Resurrection Lutheran in Oro Valley, AZ.
We encourage all women to practice frequent hand washing, maintain the recommended physical distancing, wear a face mask in public, and follow other recommendations from the AZ and NV Departments of Health as well as the Centers for Communicable Diseases (CDC). We also encourage women to continue to pray for everyone affected in so many ways. We also pray for our pastors. We encourage you to maintain your social connections (phone calls, emails, notes/letters)
We suggest that every Tuesday at noon, all women engage in a community of prayer across our entire Women of the ELCA community. Our churchwide WELCA has written a prayer meditation for your use. You can download it, print it, share it across your community of women.
