What is the Secret to a Long

and Joyful Marriage?... There Isn't One.

Evening Workshop for Couples


Wednesday, May 2, 2018

6:00-9:00 p.m.

Deacon Art and Sandy Miller



Join us for an exploration of how to deepen the connection we feel with our partner. In this couples’ retreat, we will:

  • Explore the Five Love Languages to help couples grow in intimacy and trust: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts and Physical Touch
  • Examine thought patterns and behaviors that block our ability to be compassionate and accept our partners as they are
  • Explore ways to accept the differences in our partners while being honest about our own needs 

Through teaching, conversation, and laughter, this retreat will help you to accept differences in your spouse more graciously, deal with conflict more honestly, and deepen the sense of joyful mutual appreciation in your relationship. 

Offering:  $40; $70 per couple, includes dinner.
