The Marriage Course is a series of seven sessions, designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage. Some couples do the course to intentionally invest and strengthen their relationship, others are looking to address more specific challenges. Either way, the course offers essential tools and practical ideas to help you build a relationship that lasts a lifetime. 

The Marriage Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background.

 
 

Who is it for?

Any married couple looking to strengthen their relationship. Couples not married but living together are welcome. 

What's the cost?

$50 per couple for seven weeks, covering food and materials. If finances are prohibiting you to participate, please contact TiffanyMPickett@gmail.com 

What can we expect?

On The Marriage Course you will eat dinner with other couples and after short video or talk you will have time for private discussion between you and your partner/spouse in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. 

You never share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner. Background music ensures that you can chat in complete privacy.
