You are invited to register for the 2019 St. John’s Couples Retreat in Sister Bay (Door County) from February 8th-10th.
Jesus said in Matthew 19 (verses 4 & 5b), “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female . . . and the two shall become one flesh?” This is a formula that only makes sense in the power of God! God created each of us uniquely “man” or “woman,” yet brings husband and wife together as “one” in marriage – Coupled in Christ! What does this look like in your marriage now? What does Jesus have to say? What did He model for us? This will be our journey at this year’s retreat. There will be lots to laugh about and celebrate as we gather together Connecting, Caring, and Sharing in Christ!
We are blessed to have reserved the entire Birchwood Lodge for our time together. Each room at Birchwood Lodge comes equipped with a gas fireplace, kitchenette, and two-person whirlpool tub. The resort also has a heated indoor pool, Swedish sauna, fitness center, and game room. The Couples Retreat Committee has also planned an optional Saturday evening Progressive Dinner. It is a lot of fun! A heated trolley will whisk you away to a surprise romantic location for hors-d’oeuvres, cocktails, an elegant dinner, and decadent dessert.
The St. John’s Couple’s Retreat will help you take time to relax together, away from the stresses and strains of life, and reconnect you with the love and joy from the first moments of your marriage. At the center of the weekend is study and application of God’s Word, and fun, lots of fun! Check out the video below from the Retreat Committee as we tried to have a little fun with this year’s theme.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get to know other couples, enjoy a fine restaurant, or just get some important downtime together. Whatever you choose to do, your marriage is Coupled in Christ and will be strengthened by this retreat weekend.
The deadline to register is quickly approaching, and spots are filling up. If you would like to go to the retreat, but financial resources are too tight, please contact Pastor Hesse in the Church Office to discuss ways we can support you. Please join us – we would love to get to know you better. Don’t miss out!
