Northside planning couples retreat
On Saturday, Feb. 25, Northside Christian Church will host a Couples Retreat from 9 a.m. until noon. Linda Cope, a counselor from First Christian Church in Greenville, will be the speaker. The retreat is designed for everyone – those who are married, in a relationship or considering marriage. The goal is to strengthen relationships, no matter how long people have been together, through Biblical concepts, personal testimony and professional advice.
A light lunch (deli-style sandwiches and soup) will be served. There is no cost to attend, but a love offering will be taken.
To make reservations, contact the church at 283-1970 or go to ([email protected]).
