Theme of the 2021 Marriage Retreat

 

God’s Word is powerful and we believe it affects lives and marriages! We got to experience the powerful impact of God's Word affecting marriages, accompanied by a message from our outstanding guest speakers, Kent and Diane Prescott, at this year's Marriage Retreat that was held March 5-6, 2021.

WHAT HAPPENED AT THE 2021 RIVERSIDE MARRIAGE RETREAT?

  • 38 couples enjoyed the opportunity to get away to camp to celebrate their marriage and focus on their relationship - 14 couples commuted and 24 couples stayed at camp for the weekend.

  • Kent and Diane shared so well. Our retreat speakers did an excellent job speaking truth about all sorts of challenges and realities that face marriages today, regardless of what stage of married life we are in.

  • We enjoyed safe fellowship with other couples. We enjoyed the spacious yet intimate set-up of our dining space, we received the message and worshiped in the beautiful Chapel, we socialized and snacked in the beautifully, repurposed lower level of the dining hall.

  • Date night was a unique evening that began with a delicious meal at Riverside followed by an exclusive showing for just our group of the movie "Woodlawn" in the historic Story City Opera House.

  • The Riverside team delighted in hosting all of our couples - it was our pleasure to serve, feed, host, and facilitate this important retreat for couples.
