God’s Word is powerful—it affects lives and marriages! Couples enjoy time together, as well as worship, skits by our program team, lots of fun, great food, fellowship, and laughter.

The Marriage Retreat is a time to get away from our normal schedules, demands as being parents, housework, yard work, (shoveling snow), cooking, dishes, etc.! Take the time to be with your spouse in an atmosphere which encourages godly marriages, lasting relationships, friendships within marriages, and fellowship with others.

Our Speakers

The speakers for the 2017 Marriage Retreat are Jason and Julie Van Hove. They are no strangers to Riverside, as Jason worked on our full time staff for many years, before becoming a pastor in Ames, and Julie has been around Riverside for most of her adult life. We look forward to hearing from both Jason and Julie, as they share some of their insights into marriage!

PLEASE pray about coming to the Marriage Retreat in March 2017! Bring some friends! Maybe you know a couple who would really like to come, but child care and/or money is prohibiting them. Can you help, or could you find help for them? The registration fee is a great GIFT to give for anniversaries! They will appreciate it!
