Every October, the Atlanta Marriage Encounter community heads north to Red Top State Park. You and your family and friends are all invited for the weekend, or you can just come for the day on Saturday, October 26th, 2019. Community and fellowship with other families awaits you!

What goes on at Red Top you wonder??? Well lots of things happen on the weekend. The scheduled events include a pot luck dinner Friday evening & a Bar B Que feast with all the fixin’s followed by Mass on Saturday. There will be lots of children’s activities, trick-or-treating (around the cabins) and just old-fashioned fun! The unscheduled events are left to your imagination. All you have to do is show up and join in on the fun! Please contact Angel & Liz Bonet if you have any ideas. A full schedule of events will be posted closer to the weekend.

  • Friday: Gathering, pot luck dinner, and bingo
  • Saturday: Children’s activities, pumpkin carving, family pictures, bouncy house & slides, lively auction & fun for adults, group / family feast, family vigil mass & private trick or treating at private cabins on Marriage Encounter Alley!
  • Sunday: Gathering breakfast and goodbye hugs

Lodging, cabins and camping, and the Park Pass are your only cost if you decide to stay. The rest of the weekend’s activities are paid for through our silent & live auctions held on Saturday. Cabins have two bedrooms (with two full beds in each bedroom), a couch, a full kitchen, living area and one or two bathrooms. Cabins are priced according to the number of bathrooms. Registration will open on September 1 for all M.E. families wanting a cabin.

The total cost of the cabin MUST be paid in full by September 30th. If payment is not received by this date, you will lose your reservation. Also, the prices of the cabins will go up after that date. This is due to Red Top policy. Please note that if paying by credit card we will have to add the small fee charged for credit card transactions. If you don’t want to stay in a cabin or don’t get one, Red Top Mountain State Park has tent and RV camping available. Use the Red Top Mountain web site to make those reservations.

At this time, we are looking for volunteers to run/coordinate certain aspects of Red Top. If you want to help, but don’t know what there is to do or what you want to do, please let Angel & Liz Bonet know. We are so excited of the possibilities that this year’s Red Top event holds. We are putting our hearts and souls into planning Red Top this year, and we pray it will be reflected during the weekend. Help us make this year the best ever!

God Bless,
