Why did you choose Blue Ash?
We wanted a getaway that wasn’t too far away so couples would feel comfortable leaving their kids with a babysitter overnight.
Does the price include dinner Friday night?
No, dinner is not included. We would like you to eat before arriving at 7:30 p.m. when we will begin our first session with Keith Mask. The price does include breakfast at the hotel and a catered lunch on Saturday.
Can I come to the sessions, but not spend the night at the hotel?
We hope that you can stay as it adds to the getting-away-as-a-couple experience, but we understand that other family obligations may mean that is not possible. You can come to the sessions only – both Friday evening and Saturday – for $30 per couple. You will see that option on the registration form. The $30 includes lunch on Saturday for you both, plus snack and drinks during the sessions.
Can my children come?
No, this weekend is for you to spend it together as a married couple, focusing on what you are learning in the sessions. Please find a babysitter.
How do I pay for the event?
You can pay online when you register for the event, or you can pay later through the church office.
What is included at the hotel?
Hyatt Place Blue Ash features amenities such as a fitness center, pool, free wi-fi, free breakfast, and a restaurant on site.
How do I reserve my room at the hotel?
Once we have all of the registrations, our committee will reserve all the rooms and manage the details. Your registration through CCB and payment are the only things you need to do until you start packing for your night away.
