The Art of Marriage

The Art of Marriage $175 

This retreat is for married couples who want to get away from the hustle of daily life and rejuvenate, reconnect, and restore their relationship with their spouse and connect with God on a deeper level.

The Art of Marriage weekend is a Friday night through Saturday afternoon retreat from the daily routine to learn about God’s design for marriage and how to enrich your relationship. It is a weekend focused on building your marriage upon the Rock of Christ and discovering how you and your spouse can grow in intimacy with God and with each other. The Art of Marriage is based on a DVD series provided by Family Life, a ministry co-founded by Dennis and Barbara Rainey, who has been married for over 40 years.

Love and Respect

Love and Respect  $175

Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs is a unique approach to the differences between men and women. God-given differences in thinking, speaking, reacting, and behaviors can create unnecessary strain in your marriage. By studying these varying perspectives, you will form a better understanding of your relationship with your spouse and with Christ. For this weekend event, we have adapted and condensed a 6-week small group program. Unlike Art of Marriage, there is the group discussion on a limited basis if you desire to participate.

Prepare/Enrich Relationship Survey


Build your marriage on more than hope and a prayer. Prepare/Enrich™ is a survey that helps you ask questions you might have forgotten to ask. The assessment will uncover both strengths and opportunities for improvement. Face your marriage with truth and love, and learn to do it in God’s way. By addressing each of these questions as a couple, you will develop a greater understanding of each other and learn how to address the potential pitfalls and strengths of your marriage. After completing the survey, facilitators Jane and Joe Brown will guide you through your results to address any concerns. With their 40+ years of marriage experience, Jane and Joe will share insight and tools for building a solid foundation for your marriage.

Already married? This survey pinpoints strengths and opportunities for growth for you and your spouse. Many couples are happily in love, only to discover disconnect and differences after marriage. With this assessment, you can address these marriage stressors with truth and love for speedy resolution. This event can be held via Zoom streaming service.
