Marriage Retreat

September 29-October 1, 2023

Registration for next year's retreat is open! 

Get time away from day-to-day life and re-connect with your spouse in the intimate setting of the mountains during the fall. The cost of $249 per couple includes a session each morning and evening, a picnic lunch on Saturday followed by an afternoon of activities on campus. Saturday evening we will host a candlelight dinner and conclude the evening with hayrides, coffee, live music, and a lot of laughter! Sunday morning will include one last session and a large brunch before couples depart for home.

If you're a newlywed, celebrating your 75th wedding anniversary, or anywhere in between, call us at 828.765.7860 or email Brianna Wieringa to reserve your spot for this year’s marriage retreat. Please note that we have limited space for this event. Don't miss out!
