Description

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 those adjustments, have been married awhile and your children’s activities keep you running in every direction or are empty nesters wondering what is next, this day is 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
  • RENEW your commitment to one another

In between each presentation, you will be able to participate in a 20 minute special interest session followed by 40 minutes of time together to discuss what you've heard. If you think that seems like a long time, don’t worry! You’ll have plenty to do!

During registration, we will ask you to identfiy which of the following topics for breakout sessions interest you the most:

  • Money matters- how to set goals that work for your marriage
  • Marriage roles- creating roles that work for your marriage
  • Praying for your marriage- how to connect with God for the sake of your marriage
  • Long-distance marriage- how to cope with long-distance
  • Mixed-faith marriage- how to handle different beliefs or worship styles
  • In-laws- how to honor your parents while still honoring your spouse
  • Second marriages-how to work through some unique struggles of second marriages and blended families
  • Time management for marriages- how to juggle busy schedules, kids, work and still make your marriage a priority
  • New marriage- working through common struggles for newly weds
  • Marriage on the rocks- how to forgive and rebuild trust to move your marriage forward
  • Intimacy and sex- the importance of intimacy and sex in your marriage
  • Family crisis- how to turn to God and lean into your marriage when you and your spouse encounter a crisis
  • Retirement- looking at the next big chapter in your marriage
  • Other- please explain

We’ll 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!
