Wives of Pastors Retreat

chasing-freedom-graphicChasing Freedom: Freedom, Expectations, and Life Together

February 1-2, 2019
Grand Island

God made us for freedom, but we chase it and search for it all around us, always seeking a little bit more, where freedom already exists. We want control over our life, freedom from the expectations swirling around us, freedom from the pain inflicted by others, shallow or deep. Let’s stop chasing freedom together and start sitting in the freedom we have, discovering more of all Jesus gives us, today and each day from here forward, throwing off the expectations of others and resting in the expectations of God and God alone.

Wives and widows of pastors and vicars serving in Nebraska are invited to register and make plans to attend the Wives of Pastors’ retreat on February 1-2, 2019, in Grand Island. Participants will dig deep in their study of the book of Galatians with retreat leader Deaconess Heidi Goehmann, as well as spending time in worship, music, and fellowship.

Registration materials were mailed in mid-October and may be found, along with more information, by following the links on this page.
