Indigenous Couples’ Getaway – Thunder Bay, ON
🗓 March 1-3, 2024
March 1 @ 5:00 pm – March 3 @ 1:30 pm
Come, join us for the Indigenous Couples’ Getaway in Thunder Bay, March 1-3.
During the weekend our speaker couple will share personal stories and touch on helpful topics like differences, drift, handling conflict, understanding one another, intimacy and healing.
There will also be plenty of time for you as a couple to talk, just between the two of you, and to enjoy your getaway time together.
This event is being hosted in partnership between Indian Life Ministries, Native Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, and FamilyLife Canada. The retreat will be at the Courthouse Hotel in Thunder Bay.
