Classes for Couples and Parents

couple01One of our desires is to help you enjoy a God honoring marriage and a healthy home life. Raising children and pursuing a biblical marriage is not easy. It’s also not something that God wants you to do in isolation from other Christians. These classes are for married couples with or without children and single parents, allowing you to learn and grow with people in a similar stage of life as you.  Choose the class that seems to best fit your stage of life. Feel free to visit as many classes as you want before settling into one.

Living As One

Young couples, early in their marriage
9:30AM / Room CC 220
Living As One is a one-year class for engaged or recently married couples. This class will help you build a solid foundation in your new marriage. Your love and commitment is strong, but transitioning from two single adults to one married couple brings challenges. This class will help you develop practical skills and learn timeless principles that will serve you for a lifetime of marriage.  You can join this class any time, but you attend for only one year. The content of this class repeats annually. After your year in Living As One, you’ll transition to a permanent Adult Bible Fellowship.
