MAKING MARRIAGES FLOURISHMarriage was designed by God to be a source of joy and blessing for the couple, their family and the world. Unfortunately, many are deeply troubled and are a source of more pain than pleasure. If we know why they fail and also what would make them succeed, we would be rich in blessings. Fortunately, God has given us this wisdom. During the weekend, we will learn biblical principles that will correct current or potential problems marriages face. We will also learn critical principles and practices that will ensure positive growth and future blessings. The focus will be on returning to Gods design, which we all miss as a result of walking in the wisdom of the world instead of the wisdom of God.
PRAYERFifty couples attend the Marriage Weekend every year. Couples attend the weekend for different reasons and with different expectations. What is the same, is each couples commitment to invest in their marriage. And thats what we, as a marriage team, pray for. All couples attending are assigned to one of our ministry couples for prayer. As a team and individually, we will be covering you and your marriage in prayer.
WHAT THE MARRIAGE WEEKEND IS ABOUTSeveral years ago the Marriage Team changed the name of the weekend from Marriage Retreat to Marriage Weekend. Why? A question we were being asked frequently was Is your marriage in trouble? You keep going to those retreats isnt that helping you? The Marriage Weekend isnt about trouble, it is an investment. It is an opportunity to get away with your spouse to invest and grow in your love for one another. The weekend is filled with teaching, small group meetings, and individual time, worship, time to relax and chat with other couples and much more. For fifteen years, hundreds of couples have benefitted from this investment of time and we hope you will join us this year.
