Couples Retreat

Sadly, this year’s retreat has been cancelled, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.

The retreat would have taken place Friday and Saturday, May 1st and 2nd in the beautiful little Bavarian village of Leavenworth, WA.

We will meet at the First Baptist Church of Leavenworth located right across the street from the main downtown area. MAP

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.

In addition, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our Couples Retreat, we are having an optional dinner on Thursday night for those who are able to come a day early. Please contact the email below for more details. 

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 years and they are the parents of three daughters (Erin, Olivia, and Lizzy) and one son (David). Their daughter, Olivia, is married to Isaiah.

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