    Information as shared by the Southern Prairie District:
    • This particular year, due to the popularity of both events, District Day is being merged with the ratifying annual work of the District's Local Church Conferences.
    • Participants will have the opportunity to attend two of eight breakthrough workshops that are geared toward the rural church.
    • Local church conference work will be handled in the context of inspiring worship at the end of the day.  (Some churches may choose to hold their local church conference work within their own congregations or parishes - such as we are doing on 11/10/2019 - but all are welcome to stay for the time of worship.)
