Indigenous Couples’ Getaway – Prince Albert, SK

đź—“ Feb 9-11, 2024

February 9 @ 5:00 pm February 11 @ 12:30 pm

We invite you to join us for the Indigenous Couples’ Getaway in Prince Albert (SK), Feb 9-11.

This weekend relationship retreat is an opportunity for you to connect, improve your communication and discover more joy for the lifetime you share!

Indigenous speaker couples will share personal stories, pass on practical wisdom and provide you with opportunities to have helpful conversations, just between you and your partner. This will help you grow a healthier and more joy-filled relationship.

Each of the six sessions will help you move to a place of greater closeness and trust. You’ll gain new tools to strengthen the foundation of your relationship in the important areas of communication, conflict, sex and spirituality.

This event is being hosted in partnership between New Life Fellowship Church, Native Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, and FamilyLife Canada. The retreat will be at Days Inn and Conference Centre in Prince Albert, Sask.
