CORNING, N.Y.—The Northeast Fellowship hosted its annual Marriage Refresh retreat for couples Dec. 29–30. “Pastor Mark Hurlbut kept us busy with fun games and crazy activities before each main session,” says Jim Vogel, executive director of the Northeast Fellowship.

Mark is pastor of First Baptist Church, Marilla, New York. He also joined Pastor Frank Snyder of Calvary Baptist Church, Akron, New York, and Pastor Brian King of West Windsor Baptist Church, Windsor, New York, in teaching practical sessions on improving marriage.

“What a great way to end the year,” Vogel says.
