Retreat 2012 "Your Oscar Winning Marriage"

We rolled out the red carpet for everyone on Retreat 2012 in Grand Rapids and had a fabulous time!
We had 38 couples in attendance from more than 13 churches and 7 denominations! God is GOOD!

This year we gathered together at the very fancy Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids, MI. We held our festivities in the luxurious Imperial Ballroom.
 

We were impressed with everyone's
creativity as they created movie scene
skits based on some crazy categories
they were given like
a romantic comedy
Kung Fu style or an action movie
as a musical.

"Monty Godfather"
"Kung Fu Wedding"
"The Time Traveling Couple"
"Alien Attack at the OK Corral"
"Little Zombie Annie"
"A Fistful of Female"
"Sesame Street on the Titanic"
"Rambo of the Opera"
"Cindy Lu Leaves Casablanca"
And the Oscar goes to....
