As part of building disciples, we are offering an online in depth study into Christian marriage. The college of marriage is designed to strengthen and enrich marriages. The curriculum is presented in 5 modules of 3 session each for a total of 15 sessions. The material combines a Biblical view of marriage with clinical and researched based skills to strengthen and enhance marriage. The curriculum is appropriate for satisfied couples seeking to further enhance their relationship, couples who have some areas of struggle, and engaged couples preparing for marriage. Participants may attend individual sessions but are encouraged to complete the entire coursework.
The first session begins on Tuesday, May 5th, in our online classroom. You can access it for free here:
