Oklahoma District Pastors’ Wives’ Retreat
“There is a Season!”
Sullivant Retreat Center, Norman
October 4-5, 2019

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven” (Eccl. 3:1).


Katie Koplin, speaker and blogger at lovedinspiteofself.com, will lead us in a retreat on the topic of “A Life in Balance,” while we take time to retreat into God’s Word and sisterly fellowship. Wives of pastors, wives of retired pastors, and wives of vicars are all welcome! Nursing infants are welcome, too.

President Henke will send a letter to your congregation, asking them to pay your $100.00 registration fee. If that is not possible for your congregation or for you, we have limited scholarships available—simply mark on the form below. Also, please note that retired pastors’ wives’ are eligible for district funding.

The retreat center has very large, many-bedded rooms, so we will generally ask ladies to share a room with several others to keep costs down. Private rooming will cost an additional $30. (The grounds are to be kept alcohol-free!)

All food and non-water beverages will need to come with us, so feel free to bring snacks and beverages to share.

The deadline for registration is Sept. 20th.

Checks must be payable to “OK District LCMS.”
