Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
Dear Pastor’s Wives,
Once again we look forward to our Calvary Chapel Assoc. Pastor’s Wives Retreat at Murrieta Christian Conference Center. The date is Oct. 1-3, 2018.
The Lord has always met us and done “exceedingly, abundantly, above all we could ask or think” as we have come aside to sit at His feet and wait on Him. Our hope and prayer for each of us this year is to receive renewed vision, a wonderful refreshing, and a deepened relationship with our Savior. Please invite and include any assistant pastor’s wives and support women in your fellowship. Please ﬁll out a complete registration for each person attending the retreat.
In His love,
Calvary Chapel Association Pastors Wives Board

Check-in time at the retreat begins at 9:00 AM-11:45 AM Monday morning. There will be no check-in during lunch which will be served at noon on Monday.
Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
1 Peter 3:3–4
One of the most popular programs on television today is Extreme Makeovers. The world is fascinated with those who are completely transformed by drastic surgeries, weight loss, hair styling, and wardrobe changes.
As Christians, the temptation is to follow the world’s view of beauty and to seek to be changed externally. Yet 1 Peter 3:4 tells us “the hidden person of the heart” is far more precious in God’s sight.
Proverbs 31:30 says, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised” (emphasis added). True beauty that is lasting comes from a reverential fear of God.
Let Him give you the “ultimate” makeover that will never sag, wrinkle, or fade away—a beauty that results from an intimate, personal, and vital relationship with the living God.
