Couples Getaway

Join us for our Couples Getaway Weekend

We look forward to you joining us for our 2018 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.

Special Speakers
