Abundant Life Tres Dias

Serving Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin 

Fall Weekend 2020

It is with sincere regret to inform you that our fall weekend scheduled in October of 2020 will be postponed until the Spring of 2021. Your secretariat spent much time discussing what would be in the best interest of our community in regards to hosting a weekend this fall and the overwhelming majority of the votes were to cancel due to the current global pandemic. This decision did not come lightly and was surrounded by prayer and discussion.

It is our hope and prayer that our society will have a better handle and grasp on how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic in the near future.  Tres Dias International stated the other Tres Dias communities are also postponing their fall weekends for the same reasons, thus we are not alone in this decision.

Secretariat would like to encourage each of you to look for other ways to be building up the community such as attending reunion groups and inviting others to be a part of your group; this may prepare the path for new Pescadores to attend a weekend. We are still trying to host secuelas for fellowship and gathering together, so please be on the watch for announcements in regards to the secuela dates. We can still spread God’s love to those around us in our daily lives and can take purposeful steps to renew our walk daily with the Lord; whether that be through daily bible reading, time in prayer, bible study groups (in-person/online) or meeting in small groups with other Christians for fellowship and accountability (reunion groups). Please be in prayer for our Rector (Todd Hunt/Ken Templeton), Rectora (Kirsten Ackmann/Karen Oldenburg) and head chas as they cope with this delay. May God hold them firm to His truth and grant the patience to wait on His timing. Continue to make your 4th day honoring to God our Father. 

God Loves You and So Do I,

Jeff Ingersoll ALTD Lay Director 

August Secuela
We have a secuela coming up!  Please join us on August 22, 2020 at 1:00 p.m at Mt. Zion Church in Lake Geneva, WI.  Due to COVID still being around, we will be keeping with the same basic set up that we had at the last secuela to help protect the health and safety of all individuals in our community.  We are kindly asking each person/ family to bring their own food/meal to eat while enjoying the company of others in the community. We won't be serving food, which will help avoid lines.
We want everyone to feel comfortable with coming together as a community and as such we do recognize that everyone is at a different spot of how they practice social distancing. In order to try and respect each individual's distancing practice and also with trying to follow current recommendations, we are asking that during the group gathering we refrain from hugs/abrazos/handshakes. That being said, I am sure some of you creative folk will create a new "air hug"!
Please bring/have a mask available for this secuela, in keeping with the current recommendations and also because Wisconsin has now mandated masks inside buildings and when safe social distancing cannot be practiced outdoors. If you are feeling ill or under the weather, we ask that you try to stay home to take care of yourself and also to help keep others in the community safe and healthy.

We are so pleased to announce that Dale Dykstra will be speaking at our August secuela!  We will also be blessed with music and fellowship at the secuela. Please bring a chair and there will be access to bathrooms inside the church building. The event will be outside at Mt. Zion Church:
2330 WI-120
Lake Geneva, WI 53147

The event is planned to be outside but if there is rain we will move everything inside the church.
We can't wait to be able to spend time with our community!  Colossians 3:16 tells us " Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts."  May we come together this day with gratitude in our hearts for who God is and may we sing our praises to Him alone!
