FORMAT & SPEAKER INFO
We will have a diverse and interactive program of teaching, musical worship, one-on-one couple sharing time, and small group discussion. Our theme this year will be effective and honest communication. We will have special guest speakers, Dorothy and Christopher Greco, to lay a foundation about acknowledging our needs and brokenness, listening to our spouses, and talking with other couples in community. We hope this will be a time for heartfelt discussion, open sharing, and encouragement as a church body as we focus on building up our marriages, no matter where we are in our marriage journeys.
For those who register, you will receive an email with more details 1-2 weeks before the retreat. If you do not receive this email, please let us know at marriedcouples [at] ccfc-church.org.
