 Spring  Conference 2019

 The 2019 WELS-CLO Spring Conference was held on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Marshfield, WI.  With a springtime theme, conference attendees found new ideas for tending their libraries to help others grow in their fruits of faith, were encouraged as they learned about "fertilizing" their libraries to help them grow with new content, and "weed" unacceptable and outdated books from their libraries.  The keynote speaker Pastor Glenn Schwanke explained Bible translation principles and the Wartburg Project.  Members and guests enjoyed fellowship, encouragement, and a great lunch!
