Saturday Snapshot – Photo Challenge Recap

The Cove’s 14-Day #InTheGardenPhotoChallenge is all done! We debuted our photo challenge in the Saturday Snapshot post three weeks ago. #InTheGardenPhotoChallenge was all about putting a spotlight on the aesthetic and spiritual beauty in and surrounding a garden. On The Cove’s Instagram (@thecovenc) feed we shared images from the newly opened Ruth’s Prayer Garden each day. How it worked: We asked …

Saturday Snapshot – Retreats, Mountains, & Sunsets

It’s been a beautiful week here at The Cove. The daytime temperatures have stayed in the mid 60s to the low 80s without a whole lot of humidity.  Very nice! The earlier part of the week was quiet here at The Cove (a great time for maintenance projects to be completed!), and then later in the week, we …

Saturday Snapshot – Stop & Smell the Roses

“I am the true vine and My Father is the gardener.” (John 15:1, NKJV) In case you haven’t stopped to smell the roses this week, we’ve got you covered!  Of course, you’ll have to use your imagination and trust us that they do smell good…especially the pink ones. Do you remember the video devotion our gardener shared here …

There’s nothing like Fall in the mountains of Western North Carolina!  Earlier this week, we took a drive around our property so we could share some of the beauty with you. First, we’d like to share the drive up to our beautiful chapel and visitor’s center. Did you know we give free tours of The Chatlos Memorial …

Technical difficulties yesterday, so our Saturday snapshot is coming to you on Sunday. What a weekend we’ve had.  125 military couples from 17 states attended a military marriage retreat led by Dr. Gary Chapman. We captured this sweet moment during a time of worship on Friday night. God moved mightily in the marriages of these …

We are blessed to host many women’s retreat groups throughout the year. Here is a beautiful example of how God’s blessings abound.  These ladies are getting away, sharing their love of Jesus, drawing nearer to Him and having fun. In turn, we as a staff are privileged to see how God loves on His children. Click here if you …

Saturday Snapshot

Planes, trains and automobiles….and now, bicycles.  People come to The Cove from all over the world.  Most of them arrive in some fashion powered by an engine. This week, we greeted a guest as he pedaled up on his bicycle! He rode from Greenville, SC to Asheville, in which most of the ride was uphill.  The good news is that …

Imagine This…

This could be you… Putting a busy week behind you, you drive through the gates of The Cove.  Dogwoods, redbuds and rhododendron greet you with splashes of color along the gently curving drive. Three wild turkeys strut in front of you and dash off to the side of the road.  One turns and spreads his …
