October 3-4 – Retired Pastors, Wives & Retreat

If you are a retired pastor, be sure to save this date on your calendar now! You and your wife will surely want to attend this year’s Retired Pastors, Wives & Widows retreat at the Ramada Grand Seasons Hotel in Waupaca, Wis.

We will celebrate God’s blessings to us through Luther’s Reformation with a personal look at the lives of Martin and Katie Luther through historic research of David Wiedenkeller and his wife Mary.

Dr. Dan Paavola, of CUW, will lead a Bible study that focuses on the life of faith Luther showed, especially through his home and the spiritual  vitality of his relationship with his wife Katie. And through Luthers’s Bible translation, catechism and other works, he gave the tools for such a life of faith in the home of all believers.

Steven Gruenwald (CPS-Worker Wellness) will speak to the group about health and wellness, sharing ways to better enjoy the years of retirement.

Tuesday night’s entertainment will feature Rev. Alan Boeck on his guitar with a sampler from his vast collection of music.

All retired pastors and wives living in Wisconsin, along with our pastors’ widows, are invited to come.
