Equip your marriage to go the distance. Your marriage will never be the same!

EE14Web 240

2018 Dates: March 9-11, October 19-21

Marriage is more than saying “I do.” Your wedding will last for a moment, but a successful marriage will last a lifetime. Start your new life on the path to a successful marriage by attending Engaged Encounter at Warm Beach Camp.

Engaged Encounter is a quiet and relaxed weekend for couples who are contemplating marriage. It is designed to equip you with the necessary tools to ensure that your marriage is one of those that “goes the distance.”

Arrival: 7pm, Friday at Cascadian Lodge Lobby
Departure: 12:30pm, Sunday

What is Engaged Encounter?

  • A weekend to spend time planning, learning, and committing your future to God’s standards
  • Honest sharing by a panel of three Christian couples
  • Non-threatening… your privacy will be respected
  • Practical experience of self-discovery and mutual communication
  • Discovery of biblical principles for healthy marriage
  • Enjoy comfortable accommodations in Cascadian Lodge and fresh, prepared meals

Do we have to be “formally” engaged to attend?
No. You are very welcome even if you are “engaged to be engaged.” Also, Engaged Encounter is for couples of any age.

Who leads it?
Engaged Encounter is led by three Christian couples (a junior couple, a senior couple, and a clergy couple) who dare to be honest about their own marriages and answer the tough questions.

Do we have to say anything publicly?
No. Engaged Encounter is non-threatening. It is not group therapy. Your privacy will be respected.

Storing Treasure

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.

Matthew 6:19-21 NLT There was a time in life where Bev and I bid on abandoned storage units.  We did it with our good friends, Jim ...
