Marriage GetAway

With all the business of life and family it’s sometimes hard to take time out for the things that matter the most. Our Marriage GetAways are intended to minimize distractions so you can get away, quiet down, and hear God speak in a beautiful setting like Lake Maranatha.

You can expect excellent guest services from our Maranatha staff, comfortable accommodations, delicious food, practical Bible teaching aimed at couples, spiritual encouragement through songs of worship, and stories of hope from other couples that are seeking God’s leading for their marriage.

Additionally, we have a whole host of optional activities available to you and your spouse, Maranatha offers activities such as a Roller Skating, Climbing Wall, Coffee Shop, Board Games, Nature Trails, and more. That being said, sometimes the best activity is inactivity…so relax in our hot tub, take a walk by the lake, or sit by a campfire with a cup of hot chocolate.
