Women's Leadership Conference - Seeking Direction in Life and Service! July 19th & 20th at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary (posted 2/18)
Hosted by WELS Women's Ministry Committee.
Even as God led the Isrealites through the desert after they lerft for Egypt, he also leads us on our journey through this life. Instead of a pillar of cloud or fire, he has given us the Bible, the basic principles he wants us to follow, and ample examples from which we can learn. While the truths of Scripture are constant, a study of the application of those truths will be very helpful for all Christian women who find themselve in leadership positions.
Join us as we come together to better understand God's desire for each of us as laid out in the Bible, with a spcial focus on the unique call God has for women as leaders, and then discuss the application of these Biblical truths to our varied personal lives.

The Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Ministry (IDDM), part of the Commission on Special Ministries, will be hosting the "Give Me a Break!" retreat July 26-27 at the Country Springs Hotel, Waukesha, Wis.
The retreat is intended for parents and caregivers of children with special needs. Mr. Jim Esmeier, IDDM coordinator, says, “We hope that parents are recharged and uplifted spiritually, physically, and mentally."
The goals are to provide time to get together, provide time away from care giving, allow for spiritual growth and personal growth, provide faith-based networking, and develop ongoing support. Respite care will be provided for children.
Rev. Tony Schultz will present the keynote address, titled “Give me a break!” Attendees will be able to choose four of eight additional topical sessions, with topics including “In the beginning—it all starts with God,” “It’s About Time!” (about time management), “Friend me,” “Are you crazy?” and more.Esmeier says, “Our basic theory is that you have to be able to take care of yourself to adequately take care of others, so this is giving them a chance to recharge their batteries.”
The conference is open to WELS and non-WELS families. Learn more and register online at www.wels.net/iddm.
