Spearfish Canyon Lodge
March 17-19, 2023
Of all the things on which to spend money and time, you’ve invested wisely. Few things on earth deserve the investment of such resources more than your marriage.
Included in your registration is lodging for Friday and Saturday nights, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, lunch on Saturday. Your Saturday date night meal is on your own. We will conclude our work by mid-afternoon on Saturday so you can enjoy a leisurely afternoon before your date night. You might get some ideas from Spearfish Canyon Lodge’s web site: spfcanyon.com.
We’ll get started at 8:00 PM on Friday. Don’t get a speeding ticket on your way—that’s not covered in your registration! Let your get-away begin when you pull out the driveway or drop off the kids. Relax, enjoy, and get here when you get here. Casual dress will be in style for the entire weekend, including Sunday morning. We’ll wrap up about 11:00 AM, which is also hotel checkout.
Healthy Marriage will help you learn “determinants of a healthy marriage.” More than that, Healthy Marriage will equip to you to practice them and maintain the health of your marriage long after this memorable weekend get-away.
You enjoy spiritual health because of Jesus’ life for you. Enjoy a healthy marriage for the same reason. Prepare now by asking him to bless your time with each other. Expect big things . . . our God is capable. See you in Lead!
