Mark your calendar and register a.s.a.p. The 2018 Getaway is scheduled for October 7-9. Our guests generally arrive on Sunday afternoon. We join together for a meal Sunday night and a "get acquainted" time. On Monday morning, we have a guest speaker and some small group time, followed by lunch and free time in the afternoon. Later, we gather for a meal and an activity. On Tuesday morning, we have a session with our speaker and then enjoy lunch together before dismissing.
The cost for the entire event is $100. We ask for a $50 deposit to reserve a spot and then $50 upon arrival. This fee pays for two nights lodging (two people in a hotel room), all speaker fees, craft or activity, and all meals. We do offer some scholarships on a first come, first served basis. Most wives come alone, so we try to put them in a room with another gal who will connect. If they come with a friend, we certainly will put them together.
We are excited to announce author and pastor’s wife, Aubrey Sampson will be our speaker this year. Aubrey and her husband pastor a church in the Chicago suburbs. She brings a young, fresh face and perspective in her enthusiastic teaching. Women say that the richest time of the Getaway is not just the teaching, but the connection with others who are walking in in their same steps. We love to pray for wives and encourage them to take advantage of the time to 'be real' with other sisters who understand.
We are now taking registrations and have several women already signed up, although the Getaway is in October. Space is limited, so we encourage ladies to sign up when they know they are able to come. Once a registration thru this website is made, we will be in contact by sending out a reservation packet and staying in touch via e-mail.
