Join us for our Couples Getaway Weekend, September 11-13, 2015.
We look forward to you joining us for our 2015 Couples Getaway.
What to Expect
This wonderful weekend starts Friday evening with a delicious dinner and our first session together. Also for your enjoyment is a Shack tradition of Banana Splits each evening!
On Saturday morning after breakfast we will continue on the theme for the weekend. Couples will have the afternoon as free time to relax and take advantage of the many activities in the area. One of the highlights of the weekend is DATE Night on Saturday evening! Saturday evening begins with dinner followed by our special entertainment.
Then Sunday morning we will conclude the weekend with an outside meeting overlooking the lake. We will have our final session, a time for worship and sharing communion together. With a farewell Brunch following our morning before we depart.
Gary and Lisa Heim will be our speakers. They have authored the book, True North: Choosing God in the Frustrations of Life. Gary serves as the pastor of Small Groups and Discipleship at Blythefield Hills Church in Rockford, Michigan. Lisa is a Licensed Professional Counselor. They both offer a powerful message through their retreats and seminar speaking. Gary and Lisa are personal friends of Don and Becky Smith and served on the staff of BTL in 1989-1991.
