New format for engaged encounter weekend

July 23, 2007

Beginning in September, engaged and recently married couples will be able to benefit from the Engaged Encounter Weekend in a new format that will save them time and money.


The two day Friday-Saturday format will be introduced at the next Engaged Encounter/United Methodist Weekend in the greater Sacramento area – Friday evening, September 21 and all day Saturday, September 22. The new format will reduce the time investment for each couple and the cost, as well: cost of the weekend will now be $250 per couple.

Pastors, please recommend the Engaged Encounter Weekend to your pre-marital couples. Here are some comments from couples who have attended: “It was an unforgettable experience for both of us. We heard about marriage in a positive way." "We became more certain of our decision to marry. We were able to concentrate on our relationship without the everyday distractions."

The topics of communication, meeting each other’s needs, commitment, etc. explored at the weekend can also be of help to recently married couples.
