Marriage Retreat            

February 14-16, 2020
7 pm Friday to 11 am Sunday

Adventure and marriage go hand-in-hand!  As husbands and wives journey together, there are many adventures in two lives under one roof, in figuring finances, in growing in faith, in having a family, in sharing joy and grief.  Join us for this retreat of marriage enrichment through “Adventure Anchored in Christ.”

There will be opportunity for outdoor winter recreation, time by the fireplace, and rich conversations about the adventures your marriage has and will overcome.  You’ll meet other fun couples and share laughter throughout the weekend.  Enjoy comfortable and private accommodations in one of our beautiful theme rooms, along with delicious home-cooked meals.
