“reverse the curse”
“THE TWO WILL BECOME ONE” MARK 10:8
“ONENESS” HAPPENS WHEN THERE ARE TWO FREE AND SEPARATE INDIVIDUALS THAT COME TOGETHER. BECAUSE OF THE CURSE AND FALL IN GENESIS 3, WE HIDE from each other, place BLAME, AND TRY TO CONTROL THE ONE WE LOVE THE MOST. THIS MARRIAGE RETREAT USES FUN ACTIVITIES WITH THE FOCUS OF BECOMING KNOWN, RESPONSIBLE, AND FREE SO THE TWO REALLY DO BECOME ONE. LEARN HOW TO USE THE OPEN HAND OF COMMUNICATION TO SOLVE CONFLICT, PRACTICE CONFESSING TO ONE ANOTHER AND RELATING GENUINELY, AND DEVELOP BETTER BOUNDARIES AROUND YOUR MARRIAGE. Before attending, participants are required to READ “BOUNDARIES IN MARRIAGE” BY HENRY CLOUD.
LOCATION: Asheville, NC

Rest and Renewal Retreat
“COME TO ME, ALL YOU WHO ARE WEARY AND BURDENED, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST.” Matthew 11:28
REST IS A GIFT FROM GOD. THROUGH REST, GOD RENEWS OUR HEARTS AND MINDS AND REMINDS US OF WHAT WE WERE CREATED FOR. HOWEVER, OUR CONSUMER-DRIVEN CULTURE, FILLED WITH ITS SMARTPHONES, MARKETING CAMPAIGNS AND EVER-EXPANDING SKYLINES, OFTEN PREVENTS US FROM HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD. THROUGH THIS RETREAT, WE PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SLOW DOWN AND IMMERSE OURSELVES IN THE BEAUTY OF HIS CREATION. WE HEAR HIS VOICE MORE CLEARLY, AND WE’RE REMINDED OF WHO WE TRULY ARE IN CHRIST: BELOVED CHILDREN OF GOD.
