2024 Retreat Date
March 1st-3rd (Friday dinner - Sunday lunch)
Each day we will enjoy a time of worship, led by our retreat band, and teaching with the purpose of encouraging healthy marriages.
During free time, enjoy fun activities with your spouse or join in with other couples. We offer high ropes, zipline, volleyball, basketball, 9-square, canoeing, kayaking, nature walks, frisbee golf, mini golf, etc.
Meet up with other couples in the evening to play table games or make time to be alone and take a romantic walk by the lake. There is something for everyone.
Get all decked out and join us in the SAU lobby for Hors d'oeuvres, and then we will dine in the Atrium and enjoy live-music followed by delicious desserts. Put on your comfy clothes and then move to the Merillat Room for a movie, snack, and soda pop.
We are so pleased have Ron and LaShun Franklin as our 2024 speakers. When they met over 30 years ago, they were doing what they both love: serving God’s people. What is now a fruitful, prosperous marriage ministry started long before they even said, “I do.” Due to their compassion for couples, their commitment to the sanctity of marriage, and their desire to deliver ministry in truth and freedom, Songs of Solomon Marriage Ministries was born. SOS provides married couples with marriage tune-ups, weekend retreats, resources and — more importantly — spiritual accountability partners for life. The Franklins’ message is loud and clear: Marriage is a covenant. They are on a mission to serve notice to married couples — young and old — that divorce is not an option. In 2016, the ministry expanded and formed what is now the Songs of Solomon Relationship Institute, which serves individuals, couples, families, and institutions world-wide in the arena of developing and maintaining healthy relationships. As licensed ministers of the Gospel, certified marriage educators, and certified Biblical counselors, Ron and LaShun are committed to encouraging couples and to help them grow closer to God and each other.
