The Mission Ingathering Committee has determined that this year’s events will be held at all five traditional sites. However, Ingathering will look very different this year because of risks related to the COVID-19 virus.
As usual, each site will collect greatly needed kits and monetary donations from churches and individuals. All other traditional parts of Ingathering (worship, lunch, education, bazaar, youth overnight, quilt, and woodcarving auctions) will not occur this year. Each site will receive gifts OUTSIDE. Volunteers will wear masks and other precautions will be taken to protect both volunteers and donors.
Detailed site-specific information will be sent to all pastors late next week and will be available on the Iowa Conference website about August 24. The date of Mission Ingathering, Saturday, November 7, remains the same.
