As you study the Bible, there is no doubt that the Christian home is very important to God. Our church has always believed that you can never do enough to help draw homes closer to Christ. So this year, our church hosted its very first couples’ retreat.
When Pastor and I spoke about this retreat a few months ago, I honestly thought that it would be good to get at least four, maybe five couples. Fourteen couples ended up signing up for our retreat and we had a great time!
The Majestic Mountain Inn provided the lodging for our event and the restaurant next to it, Fargo’s Steakhouse, provided the dinner. We had sessions on how to strengthen our homes and the fellowship was sweet. I believe that new friendships were formed during the retreat as well.
Please pray that we would keep the decisions God had laid on our hearts to make during this retreat. My prayer is that we would see the results of this retreat through the faithfulness of these couples to God and through the fruit we will see in their children.
