The Art of Marriage Couples' Retreat

  • Silver Birch Ranch N6120 Sawyer Lake Road White Lake, WI, 54491 United States (map)

Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse, and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives.  Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form – challenging to master, but definitely worth the effort.

The Art of Marriage Retreat will help couples apply what the Bible teaches about marriage in a powerful way. It consists of six facilitated video sessions from FamilyLife Ministry, followed by small group time. Each participant will receive an accompanying manual that contains projects, articles, and tips to help them live what they learn. In addition to great teaching, couples will have the opportunity to enjoy a date night, relax, laugh, make new memories, and spend time away without distractions. Each married couple will receive private housing.
