The Organization of WELS Seniors (OWLS) 2016 Convention
will be held October 11th – 13th
at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Omaha, NE
“Enlarging the Harvest” is the theme drawing WELS / ELS seniors to the 2016 OWLS Convention on October 11-13 at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Convention Center in Omaha, Nebraska. The keynote speakers will share inspiring messages about how the harvest is being enlarged through Home Missions (Pastor Keith Free, WELS Missions), through missions in Russia and eastern Europe (Pastor Michael Ewart, former missionary) and through WELS Military Services (Pastor Paul Ziemer, WELS National Civilian Chaplain).
Workshops will cover such diverse areas as cross cultural ministry to the Sudanese, WELS Prison Ministry, the Exodus and Crossing of the Red Sea, technology topics on streaming worship services to care facilities and providing looping that assists people with hearing aids, and healthy senior living. Early arrivals to the convention will be able to choose from a tour of the Durham Western Museum or a guided bus tour of interesting Omaha sites.
