MARRIAGE REFRESH

Spring cleaning is right around the corner! Soon it will be time to dust and sweep and reach some of those places that have been affected by the cold winter months. Perhaps your marriage could use some spring cleaning as well! Lets face it…every marriage could use a refresher at some point. Whether you’ve been married a few years, 10 years, or you’re an empty nester, you’ve probably learned that happy marriages don’t just happen. They require work! Join Pastor Eric and Kate as they facilitate a 5-week Marriage Refresh experience. The group will be limited to 10 couples. There is a $35 fee and all couples must commit to every session. The Marriage Refresh course will meet at 7pm on the following Sunday nights: March 22, April 12, 19 and 26, and May 3. Sign up at the Info Desk.
