annual marriage retreat

Zephyr Point, Lake Tahoe

October 21–23

Our annual marriage retreat is for all married couples. Whether you are looking to strengthen, heal, reconnect or simply just get away, this is a weekend you don't want to miss. 

Offering a unique theme each year, we host guest speakers that take us through sessions throughout the weekend. Some sessions are full of laughter and light teaching while others provide moments leading to healing and restoration within marriages. 

It is important to us that each day provides adequate time for games and group activities. This is a fun weekend away with other couples, so we do our best to have something for everyone.

Theme: Take A Stand: Protecting Your Marriage

We are so excited to be learning about how to protect our marriage in all different areas of life. With divorce rates increasing and families suffering from the constant unpredictability of everyday life, spiritual attacks are coming in hot and we need to handle situations the way Christ calls us to. How do we do that while maintaining a healthy marriage and family life? Come with us on this weekend away to learn and practice the tools necessary for the battle that has already begun.
