It can be overwhelming to try and understand God’s design and plan for marriage because so many contradicting messages surround us: in books, magazines, movies and music. As a result, many couples fall into the trap of looking everywhere but to the Author of marriage to find out what God intended.
Marriage is what you make it, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer. So, how are you doing?
Every marriage has room to grow and everyone can benefit from a deeper relationship with their spouse. Yet, we never seem to have time to just work on our marriage. Whether you are newlyweds or have been married for decades, it is our goal to help you understand God’s plan for your marriage and discover new insights about you and your relationship with your spouse.
Here are some ways we want to help you - whether you are considering or preparing for marriage, needing help or direction with your spouse, or just wanting to “fine tune” the relationship:
A crucial part of having a great marriage is preparation. That’s why we encourage couples to participate in our premarital mentoring program.
One-to-One Couple Mentoring is being developed to offer individualized help for your specific marital needs.
Great marriages don’t just happen … you have to work at them! This celebration of marriage takes place 3 times a year and offers a creative and helpful experience to encourage your marriage.
