Your marriage matters to God. Whether you realize it or not, God has a very specific purpose for your marriage. It is our desire to equip you with some basic tools and strategies to navigate the complexities of a marital relationship.

We’ve designed our Marriage Prepare & Enrich class to help you strengthen your relationship and foster relationships with others who are striving for a God-centered marriage. During the class, you’ll connect in small groups with a mentor couple who is passionate about preparing others for marriage. They will be there to support you and guide you as you answer the important and often difficult questions about your relationship. Additionally, each week you will hear from another married couple and learn from their experience.


Over the 6-week course you will study:

Relationship Roles
Communication
Personal Stress
Conflict Resolution
Financial Management
Personality
Couple and Family Mapping
Sex and Affection
Spiritual Beliefs

 

January 27th - March 3rd | 3 p.m | Herndon Campus

Registrations are online only. There is limited space and the class fills up quickly. Registrations will close when the class is full.
