Each year it is such a joy to gather together as a district to connect and grow in our relationships with each other and to be refreshed at Ministers and Spouses Retreat. This year will look a little different as we combine our District Council business and Credentialing Service with the retreat. 


We are planning this event as if the state will still be in the progression of opening. We will not be practicing social distancing, however, we fully understand if you wish to do so at the event. If things change in South Dakota we will make the appropriate decisions at that time.
