Upper Columbia Conference Couples Retreat

Couples found a great way to spend the Valentine weekend by attending the Upper Columbia Conference Couples’ Retreat at Camp MiVoden in Hayden Lake, Idaho. The scenery was breathtaking and the atmosphere of the lakeside retreat was healing and peaceful. We enjoyed great food, made new friends, had lots of fun playing group games, and participating in the grand march Saturday night.

The guest speakers, Jerry Connell, College View family ministries pastor, with his wife Kathy, gave many tools and resources for making our marriages better. They led us, as couples, through exercises to improve communication and closeness in our marriages. The personal experiences which they shared were encouraging.

There was so much enthusiasm and positive feedback from the couples who attended that the Family Life Department has decided to have another Couples’ Retreat next year so that this wonderful program can keep on blessing many homes and marriages. •
