Cost:

The cost for the retreat, if postmarked on or before January 31, is $100.00. All final registrations must be postmarked by February 15. The final registration cost is $110.   We cannot accommodate walk-ins.

Hotel reservations are separate from the retreat registration. That information is listed below under “Accommodations”.

Although we hope that all ladies attending the retreat will be able to come for the entire weekend, we realize that for some, scheduling presents a problem. So that we can make it possible to share in this enriching experience with as many ladies as possible, we are again offering several options for attending the retreat.  Please circle the option you plan to attend on your registration form. You can indicate whether you are coming for the entire weekend, 2 days – Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday, or only Saturday. (Saturday does include the entertainment.) The costs for those options are indicated on the registration form. We stress that these options are available for those who cannot share in the entire weekend retreat. We want to encourage all attendees to share in the full weekend retreat.

2022 Theme:  “Serve One Another in Love” Please see the “Musicians/Speakers tab” for more information on our 2022 theme. 

Reserved Seating:

Because our attendance has been near capacity, all tables have reserved/assigned seating.  This is the only way we can guarantee that seating requests will be honored.   Maximum seating number at a table is eight.  There needs to be a group leader for each seating request.  The group leader must submit all names in her group at the time of registration.  We will still offer a few Mixer Tables for those ladies coming by themselves or with one other person.  There are no accommodations for walk-ins.  For more information on seating, please refer to the tab on the top marked “Seating”.

Clothing: 

This year we are offering a ladies crew neck and a V-neck tee shirt. Please send one check for your registration and a separate check for your clothing order.  All clothing orders must be placed by the January 31 deadline. A colored picture of the clothing along with size information are available on the  “Apparel tab”. 

Banquet Meal (Three Options):

1. Portabella &Quinoa Stuffed Peppers*

2. Chicken Oscar

3.  Bacon Wrapped Pork

The asterisk (*) indicates this meal can be made gluten free. If you want glutten free food for all your meals, you need to indicate that on your form under “special needs”. If you have other dietary needs, please also indication that on the registration form. We will try to accommodate those requests.

Free-will Offering: A free-will offering will be taken for the Seminary Scholarship Fund and MLC. This year we will again be collecting items for the pantry at the Seminary. Gift cards for purchasing fresh food items are also greatly appreciated. We will have a collection box at the retreat for your donations.   

Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary Food Bank Suggestions:

The Seminary Food Bank is thankful for donations of any non-perishable grocery items. We are in particular need of the following:
diapers, paper towels, toilet paper, toiletries, coffee, breakfast cereal
laundry detergent, fruit juice, peanut butter, sugar & flour, canned fruit, pasta items, toilet paper toiletries
Due to many generous donors, the Seminary food pantry has an abundance of certain items. While all donations will be accepted, please limit contributions of the following:
canned vegetables, pasta sauce, instant potatoes, Ηamburger Helper, tea

The seminary food bank has been blessed tremendously with food items. One way to ensure that your gifts are helping families with their individual needs is to give in the form of gift cards.  Suggested cards are: Kwik Trip, Amazon, Piggly Wiggly, and Pick-n-Save. This especially helps students buy items we can’t store in the food bank such as meat, eggs, dairy products, produce, and other fresh food items OR to help people with specific dietary needs such as gluten-free foods or food allergies.  Alternatively, monetary gifts (checks made payable to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary) will be used to purchase gift cards to be distributed to families.

**Please do not send any packages or cans that are damaged or expired!**

Accommodations:

Hotel reservations for the newly renovated rooms are made separately. In order to get the special room rates ($82.00 – $124.00) per night for 1-4 per room, contact Cobblestone Suites and state that you are with the Pathways to Christ retreat. The phone number for the Hawthorn Inn is (920) 303-1133. This is the same hotel that we have used in the past. There has just been a name change. Also, whoever is making the reservation must give the Cobblestone Suites the names of all the ladies who will be sharing each room. If their name is not listed under the room, they cannot check in separately.

Cancellations: Retreat cancellations received prior to February 7, 2022 will receive a full refund for the retreat expenses. From February 7 to February 15 only the meals portion will be refunded. After February 18, no refunds will be issued. If you do need to cancel, you may find your own substitute.  If it is after the deadline, you may also check with us to see if we have anyone on our waiting list.  Please inform us in advance of any cancellations.   Hotel cancellations need to be made with the hotel.
