Couples Retreat

In the spring of each year, Emmanuel Reformed Baptist Church is host to a retreat for couples. The retreat is open to all couples who wish to come and be instructed and encouraged in their marriages by what the Bible has to say concerning the blessings and responsibilities of the husband and wife relationship.

The retreat is also a wonderful opportunity to spend time alone together as well as to enjoy fellowship with other couples.

This year’s retreat will take place Friday and Saturday, April 30th and May 1st in the beautiful little Bavarian village of Leavenworth, WA.  

This year we will meet at the Enzian Inn conference room. Click HERE for a map and directions.

The first session begins Friday at 7pm.  We highly recommend arriving in Leavenworth early and visiting the village ahead of time. The second session is Saturday at 11am.

This will be our 21st annual retreat. So, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first retreat, we are having an optional dinner on Friday night.  The dinner will be catered by the Enzian and we will eat in the same conference room as the meeting. The cost for dinner is $65 per couple (includes tax & gratuity). We will also have a sideshow at 6:30. Even if you have other plans for dinner, feel free to come for the slideshow!

Our speaker this year is Pastor Jim Savastio from Reformed Baptist Church of Louisville.

Pastor Savastio was born in upstate New York, the tenth of eleven children. When he was fourteen he was introduced to the gospel and was converted. Jim studied at Columbia Bible College in Columbia, SC and the Trinity Ministerial Academy in Montville, NJ. In 1990 Jim moved to Louisville, KY to pastor the Reformed Baptist Church of Louisville and was ordained in 1991. Jim serves on the board of directors of The Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary and as the President of Practical Shepherding Ministries. Jim is the co-author of The Pastor’s Soul along with Brian Croft. Jim has been married to Becky for thirty-one years and they are the parents of three daughters (Erin, Olivia, and Lizzy) and one son (David). Their daughter, Olivia, is married to Isaiah. Pastor Jim recently became the proud grandfather of beautiful little Eleanor.

The topic of the messages will be “Gripped by the Gospel – How the Grace of God infuses Joy and Hope into Marriage.”
