2019 Fall Pastors Conference

On behalf of the Conference Planning Committee, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the 2018 Fall Pastors Conference: Hope and Healing: Pastoral Care in the Face of Abuse.  Scheduled for October 8-10th.  The venue for this year’s event will be the Holiday Inn in Fond Du Lac.  Please make reservations by calling #920-923-1440.  Be sure to mention the “SWD Pastor’s Conference” when making the reservation to get the reduced rate of $95.00.  Rooms must be reserved by September 10th, 2018.

Our conference speakers for this year will be Sandra Ostapowich, Dr. Stephen Saunders, and Rev. Larry Vogel from the LCMS Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Task Force.  Their sessions will focus on helping pastors understand the prevalence of abuse in our congregations while identifying warning signs and symptoms of abuse.  This will all be framed in the context of pastoral care while also addressing legal liabilities, confidentiality and other practical tools for clergy.  Each presenter will approach the subject from a different perspective with their own unique experiences to help equip us in this very challenging area.  The conference fee is $120.00.

In addition, there will also be a women’s event for clergy wives.  Please encourage your spouse to attend!

Cracking Clays for LuWiSoMo

Experience the scenic beauty of this 100 target course nestled against the Horicon Marsh State Wildlife area. An unpredictable delivery at each station makes some shots easy and some more difficult – appealing to all skill levels.

Enjoy the fun of the flurry shoot, with a team of 4 shooters shooting repeatedly, as fast as they can load, as birds are released in rapid succession.

Gather a team and enjoy a fun day!

Christian Art and History in Italy 2018

 

After a successful tour of Germany in 2016, Mt. Zion Lutheran Church of Greenfield, WI has organized a trip in September 2018 to take in the riches of Italy’s Christian art and history and its many other wonders. Italy’s historic and cultural heritage is so rich and so vast that very few countries in Europe can match its treasure. Our journey has been custom designed to highlight some of the most important sites for Christians and also to savor some of the country’s most delightful and beautiful places. The tour begins with several days in Rome, focusing on important Christian sites, including a morning devoted to Luther’s stay there in 1510. The tour continues to such sites as Assisi, Pisa, Florence, Siena, Ravenna, Venice, and Tuscany, the cradle of the Renaissance.  September is an ideal time to visit this region. For more information, go to Mt. Zion’s website, and be sure to click the links below to view the brochure with all the details of this once in a lifetime trip. We hope you will join us!
