When was the last time you invested 12 hours into your marriage? Are you feeling a little out of touch with each other? Whether you are newly married and making adjustments, have been married awhile and your children’s activities keep you running in every direction or are empty nesters wondering what’s next, this day is for you.

Last year’s details & agenda

2018 Details will be released soon, but this will give a picture of the kind of environment we aim to create.

What does The Surprising Marriage Retreat: Refresh! have for you?

To give the two of you plenty of time to learn and REFRESH your marriage, we’ll be enjoying a day away at the beautiful Black Leg Ranch by Sterling, North Dakota.

Throughout the day, Pastor Matt Anderson will guide couples through a series of discussions designed to help couples:

  • REFLECT on your history and recall the events that have impacted your life together.
  • RECLAIM your role as a married couple. Are you doing what you can to honor that? What resources and support are available for you on your journey together?
  • RENEW your commitment to one another. This is a time to make some initial plans for how you’ll tackle the next day, the next week and months ahead.

Between each presentation, you will be able to participate in a 20-minute breakout session followed by 40 minutes of time together to discuss what you’ve heard. A variety of breakout topics will be covered. If you think that seems like a long time, don’t worry! You’ll have plenty to do!

We will end the day with a nice dinner, a renewal of your marriage vows, and a fun dance. Of course, there will be a few surprises along the way. We wouldn’t have it any other way!

Sign in is 8-9 a.m. Activities 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.

Space is limited, so please register asap!
