Marriage Enrichment Opportunities

 

The Marriage Ministry’s vision is to promote healthy, God centered marriages that last a lifetime. We seek to educate couples on the biblical approach to marriage preparation, enrichment, and restoration. We encourage you to be intentional about your marriage and take advantage of the resources available: marriage mentors, classes, socials, and conferences.

BETTER LOVE MARRIAGE Enrichment

(Formerly Deep Love)

New dates & times coming soon

For couples who want to move from bad to better or good to great. The Better Love Assessment and class can assist couples into deeper relationships, conversations, and bonding whether you are dating, engaged, or have been married for decades.

Participants will take a 15-minute online assessment (click the link to the right). This assessment will generate a personalized 10-page report (you will be the only one to see your report).

The class will cover four topics in the assessment: Personality, Communication, Conflict, and Adaptability.

The class is free, however, there is a $28 cost for the assessment, which is being offered at a group discount. Instructions for the online assessment will be emailed after registering for the class.

Cherish Marriage CLASSES

New dates & times - coming soon

Based on Gary Thomas' book and conference, Cherish. Gary's message is that marriages will not only survive, but thrive, when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another.

There is no cost for the class. However, it is strongly recommended that couples purchase the Cherish Study Guide.

Marriage Mentors

We learn the duties of our daily job, train for competitions, and study the Bible for spiritual growth, but how many of us are intentional about maturing in our marital relationships? All couples have areas in which they can grow; learning from someone who may have experienced similar life events is a great way to move your relationship to a deeper level.

WEDDINGS

 

Congratulations! We rejoice with you about your future marriage. It is our desire to help you start your marriage well and flourish for a lifetime. We take marriage relationships seriously. At the same time we know how much fun this is: growing together, experiencing new things, and loving another person enough to make public vows of commitment and a spiritual covenant before God.
