Save the Date! Pastors' Wives' and Widows' Gathering
The 2021 Pastors’ Wives’ and Widows’ Gathering will be held the morning of Saturday, October 2, 2021. Please mark your calendar and make plans to join with women who have experienced some of the same joys and frustrations because of their husband’s service to the Lord.

We are blessed to have as our presenter nationally-known author and speaker, Sharla Fritz. Sharla is a pastor’s wife herself, serving in the Northern Illinois District. She will be speaking to us about “God’s Relentless Love,” based on the Old Testament book of Hosea. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to dig deeper into God’s Word and see how much you are valued by the God of all creation. Email Sue Green for information.
