Your marriage and the marriages around you are filled with varying personalities, hobbies, and life experiences. We believe that building up one another's marriage can not only help their marriage, but yours as well. The Art of Marriage community group will meet every other Monday. Our meeting time will consist of the Art of Marriage video series, where we will cover six different topics as well as conversation (we will have snacks and drinks too). Every week we will provide each couple with a workbook that coincides with that week’s topic to do at home. While this group is geared towards married couples, people who are engaged or are in a relationship and looking towards marriage are also welcome.
