Couples Strengthening / Marriage Preparation Weekend - Friday, March 4 - Sunday, March 6

posted 10 Feb 2016, 12:12 by Gary van der Meer   [ updated 7 Mar 2016, 11:43 ]
Our first ever couples' weekend functions as marriage enrichment or marriage preparation; it's for couples strengthening - regardless of where you are in your relationship! We will cover the major themes to support relationships, team-teach, and hear the hard-earned wisdom of those who have been in relationships for a long time. Each workshop includes an extended period of one-on-one couple-time with discussion questions. 

Workshop themes include:
  • Values
  • Family of Origin
  • Problem-Solving & Conflict Resolution
  • Sex & Intimacy
  • Work & Careers
  • Money & Finances
  • Our Home Life
The topic of God's blessing of our relationships will be introduced at the beginning, and the weekend will conclude with Renewal of Marriage Vows - as part of the Sunday morning worship service on March 6, 10:30 a.m. All couples attending the service (including those not participating in the workshop) are welcome to renew their vows.
The Weekend begins Friday evening at 7 p.m., continues Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 7 p.m. Meals are included, catered by the Afghan Women's Collective.

Because this is the "BETA" version - our first time, we are offering this workshop for $50/couple. Future weekends will be $100/couple.

Maximum Participation 15 couples.
