It is so important for married couples to spend quality time together. That time together can build intimacy, open communication and strengthen your bond, which in turn strengthens your marriage. Yet, it is so easy for couples to get caught up in the day-to-day that they forget to spend that time with each other.

St. Paul’s Marriage Retreat was formed for married couples to get away and spend quality time with each other and strengthen their bond through educational and social opportunities. During the retreat, couples learn how to enrich their marriage through practical, interactive talks and presentations that are backed by Biblical principles. There is ample time to have fun, get to know other couples in our congregation – and learn that pastors are people too.

Marriage is the foundation of family and the foundation of the community. It is our hope that stronger marriages are contagious.

Our 2020 Biblical marriage retreat will be led by Rev. Dave Fleming. Our theme is “Peace in the Midst of Chaos.”

Couples will:

  • worship together;
  • enjoy the company of others on the journey;
  • receive teaching and resources to strengthen their marriage;
  • spend structured and free time exploring what they’re learning; and
  • have an on-site counselor available to assist.

The 2020 Biblical marriage retreat is about rejoicing in the truth and finding strength through our Lord who brought us together.

Participants must be married according to St. Paul’s Marriage Policy.
