"Weekend to Remember" Marriage Retreat

Remember how captivating it was when you first fell in love with your spouse? Every moment was special. As real life takes over, that memory can grow less vivid, and you might not feel like the center of their world as often. That’s where the Weekend to Remember® marriage retreat from FamilyLife comes in.

The two-and-a-half day romantic weekend getaway 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.

The WTR marriage retreat 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.

Learn how to:

•  Address issues as they arise, rather than letting resentments fester

•  Express feelings positively, so your partner remains engaged in the discussion

•  Resolve conflict in healthy, Biblical ways

•  Maintain a vital sexual connection with one another

•  Forgive one another freely and completely

•  Increase your commitment to your marriage, resulting in deeper intimacy

ONLINE REGISTRATION Cost: $199.98 (includes $100 savings when you use our Group Name: REVIVECHURCH).*

Men's Retreat at Camp Lebanon

One night. Three meals. Three sessions. Men’s Advance! begins with an 8pm Friday chapel and ends with a delicious Saturday dinner. This is the perfect spring weekend format! A study retreat (with some free time fun and ice cream thrown in!) designed to encourage men in their walk with Christ and in their fellowship with Christian men. Our hope is to start a spiritual conversation at Camp that continues back at home in the form of a deeper, fresher walk with the Master. Last year we hosted 106 men, who came in groups of one to twenty. No group is too big or too small! THEME: “The Man Code” – Biblical, Intentional, Transferable How should a man carry himself in life (e.g. work, marriage, church, community, relationships)? Is there a “code” to live by? How do I teach my sons to be men? What do I teach my daughters to look for in a husband? Sadly, most American Christians have lost the ability to answer these questions. “The Man Code” is a Biblical code of conduct for intentional and dynamic living, creating a clear and transferable picture of manhood for every generation. Our own Pastor Mark Henry will be the weekend teacher. Camp Lebanon Weekend Details Online Registration Paper Registration Form For a $5 off discount, use code: 2018REVIVE5 (on paper or online).

October is Pastor Appreciation Month!

Pastor Appreciation Month (October) is a great opportunity for individuals and the church, as a whole, to show love and appreciation for our pastors. Pastors are ordinary human beings, with limited energy, time, and strength. They have down days and challenges to their faith, just as we all do. God tell us that the elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor (1 Timothy 5:17), and he asks us to honor those leaders who work so hard for all of us.

Perhaps you can send a card, meal, gift/gift card as a thank you. You can pray for our pastors on a daily basis. There are many ways to show that you love and appreciate our staff. Thank you for being part of Revive Church.

Abundance Women's Conference

Come together with women from across the country and all walks of life for ABUNDANCE, a special two-day event to explore the sufficiency and generosity of Christ. Authors and teachers Lisa Harper, Angela Thomas-Pharr, Kelly Minter, Jefferson Bethke and TC Stallings along with Christian recording artists Christy Nockels and Natalie Grant, will explore and illustrate how embracing God's abundance transforms every area of our daily lives.

Because at ABUNDANCE, we believe that, in Him, little is much, less is more, hardship is blessing, hurt is healed, and wrong is made right. We believe His love multiplies and His mercy is boundless. We know His grace is gratuitous and His forgiveness is excessive. We trust His kindness is generous and His faithfulness overflows. And we remember, in Him our lives can be abundant.

Join us Friday & Saturday, September 29 & 30 at Grace Church in Eden Prairie. In faith, we bought 25 tickets at the price of $60. The first 25 women who sign up and pay will get that rate. If those 25 tickets sell, and we need to purchase more, the cost will then be $70.

Revive Church has reserved a block of hotel rooms at the Fairfield Inn in Eden Prairie ($109.00 per night). It is close to the venue, Grace Church, and serves breakfast, as well. These rooms are on hold until September 15. To book a room, you need to call the hotel directly at (952) 903-9444. Find some girlfriends and make reservations! After the close of Saturday’s session, for those who would like to go out for lunch together, we will go to Jake’s City Grill in Eden Prairie. When you sign up for the conference, please let us know about lunch, too, so we can make group reservations accordingly.

Connect with Holly Jenson to reserve/pay for your ticket now (hollyjenson@gmail.com, 763-432-7222). Tickets will be on sale on Sundays in the Foyer at Church starting Kickoff Sunday, September 10.
