Dear Friends

Dear Friends of Cono,

Much has happened in recent months that adds to the drama and the importance of the future of Cono.

In recent days both sides have looked at ways to settle the matter out-of-court, something many would like to see. It would avoid some expense and also would reduce the spectacle of Christians who are grappling over what they think is the right thing to do. To date, no out-of-court settlement has been reached. A request for summary judgement by the other side is to be heard in late March, and the trial itself is set for April 17-29.

All of this reminds us to remain faithful in our support of the cause. This legal phase is nearly over (unless there would be an appeal). The future of Cono hangs in the balance. In particular, we have $32000 that will be matched if we donate. Please help claim this money that will help us end the legal season in a responsible fashion.

Send check (and make out) to:

Iowa Presbytery - Cono
c/o Kevin Schwab
1130 Main Street
Ackley, IA 50601

Please keep praying. Pray that the Iowa Presbytery will prevail, and that the Iowa Presbytery (PCA) can quickly move toward using the property --for God's glory-- in the near future. The PCA's Ridge Haven is the denomination's thriving camp and conference arm, and with input from historic Conoites, the Friends of Cono and the Presbytery, will decide how best to use Cono in the future.
