Weekend to Remember
FamilyLife's Weekend to Remember® is a two-and-a-half day getaway weekend that is a time to be together as a couple to invest in and strengthen the foundation of your marriage, no matter how firm or fragile it is. By getting away from the distractions of life, you can fortify your most important relationship and work toward building wonderful memories together, for decades to come.
Weekend to Remember is not a large group counseling session or small group discussion. You won't be asked to share intimate details of your relationship with anyone. You will listen to engaging talks from marriage experts, then take private time alone with your spouse to work on the concepts you studied. When you leave, you will have an assortment of powerful, Christ-centered communication tools to use for years to come.
The Weekend to Remember will be held in Columbus next year:
April 12-14, 2019
Columbus Marriott Northwest
5605 Blazer Pkwy
Dublin, OH 43017
