Chester County C.E.
Weekend of Worship
Dear Youth Leaders,
The Chester County Christian Endeavor Pinebrook Committee has been planning for our February 2021 retreat since March. We were hoping that Covid-19 cases would be diminishing through the Fall but unfortunately, that is not the case. We know God is in control and we trust him to accomplish his perfect will through whatever may come.
Retreats, camps and conferences are a vital ministry to our youth but after much prayer and discussion, we feel at this time it is not wise for us to have our full Winter Retreat at Pinebrook. Instead, we would like to offer a one-day event on Saturday, February 6 at a local facility. Our preliminary plans are to meet from 10am – 5pm. During this time we will have activities, food, fellowship and study all offered using Covid protocols. The cost would be $5 per person. Below is what we are asking of you, the youth leaders.
Talk with your church leadership and parents to see if your youth will be able to participate
Contact me by Sunday, December 13 to let me know if your group will be participating and if so, the approximate number
Give us some ideas of a local church, Christian school or other facility that would be able to offer us the space needed (we would love to have a gym or large space so we can social distance)
Pray for wisdom and discernment
Our committee will be meeting on December 15 to see what interest we have in this one day event and to begin working out all of the details, if this is something the youth groups would like to do. We will confirm with all of you, once we know what the plan will be. Thank you for all that you are doing for the youth during this challenging time.
Peg Dombach, for the Pinebrook Committee
