Frequently Asked Questions

What happens at a Marriage Encounter?
A series of presentations are given by a team of couples. Each presentation allows you and your spouse a rare opportunity to look at yourselves as individuals, then to look at your marriage and your relationship to one another, and finally to look at your relationship to God. The weekend starts at 7:00pm on Friday night and runs until about 4:30pm on Sunday afternoon.

Does the weekend respect the couple’s privacy?
Yes. The weekend is oriented strictly to each individual couple. You concentrate on your spouse to such an extent that you are hardly aware of the other couples present. The presentations are given to the group as a whole. After each presentation, the husband and wife have time in the privacy of their room for their own personal discussion.

How does a Marriage Encounter enhance a marriage?
The encounter weekend teaches a communication technique which permits each couple to explore important areas of their relationship in a spirit of love and understanding. By continuing the newly acquired technique begun on the weekend, husbands and wives continually grow closer together to live more joyful and purposeful lives.

Please Note: This weekend is for husbands and wives only. Please make arrangements at home for your children and pets. Also, please consider leaving your cell phones and pagers behind. This weekend is just for the two of you, so leave the rest of the world behind for just a few days, and invest in your future.

Permission to Rest is Granted

This morning, in my time with God by the morning fire, the message was simple and clear: You have been granted permission to rest. Yet, the real challenge for me, and perhaps you too, is to receive and take the rest that has been generously granted to you and me. Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.

Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
