Marriage Enrichment Weekend
Marriage Enrichment is a positive, personal experience for couples to learn a technique of loving communication that can be used for the rest of their lives. It is a time when a couple can be alone together, free from distractions, to share their hopes, joys, fears and frustrations. The weekend allows a couple to discover the personal strengths in their relationship that will enable them to look to the future with courage. It is a common sense approach that helps couples see where their relationship could be through communication. Marriage Enrichment is not a retreat, marriage counselling, or sensitivity course.
June 8 - 10, 2018 at Pocaterra Inn, 1725 Mountain Ave, Canmore, AB
Cost: $300.00 non-refundable registration fee will confirm your registration. (Early Bird $250 - before April 18)
If you're interested in getting baptized this summer on August 19, please attend one of the sessions being offered after each service on July 29, August 5 or 12. BBQ to follow.
