Grace Marriage is an exciting ministry designed to enrich, protect, and grow your marriage. Using biblical, grace-based materials, you will have time to talk with your spouse and explore ways to enhance your relationship. Our marriage ministry is an intentional commitment to grow in your relationship with each other and the Lord.
Four times a year, husbands and wives meet with other couples in various stages of life to explore different aspects of marriage. The sessions are called marriage coaching. Marriage coaching is an intentional and proactive approach to re-focus on the positives in your relationship. Marriage coaching is not a lecture. It is not marriage counseling or group therapy. It is not a seminar or conference. It is not a place where you will be forced to share your deepest secrets. Quite simply, it is a biblically-based marriage maintenance model that can revolutionize your relationship. Couples in their 20s to couples in their 80s are involved in Grace Marriage groups and have been greatly blessed by participating!

Who can attend?
Any married couple may attend. A couple does not have to be a member of our church to participate.
When are the sessions held?
The dates for 2023 are on the following Saturdays: February 11, May 6, August 26, and November 4. Sessions will be held in Reid Hall building from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. A meal and snacks are included. Ideal participation encourages making a commitment to attend all four sessions.
Who will we be with?
You will be in a group with your spouse as well as other couples who want their marriage to grow. With the guidance of a trained table facilitator couple, three couples will walk through the morning’s material together. Spouses will have time together throughout the day to privately discuss the topics addressed. Groups will consist of mixed ages and will include newly marrieds as well as couples who have been married for decades. Remember, Grace Marriage is about spending time with your spouse, not about being with close friends. Although you will get to know others in your group better, the purpose is to spend time with your husband or wife and focus on your marriage.
What about childcare?
Childcare will be provided by reservation.
Half-way through our time together, we will break for a 30–45-minute brunch. Those of you with children in childcare will sign them out to have brunch with you, and then take them back to their class before we resume our session.
What does it cost?
What does a normal date night cost if you go out to eat and see a movie, or if you go to a ballgame or concert? $75? $100? More?
The cost for four days of marriage coaching, including all materials, access to Grace Marriage at Home, snacks, and brunch, is just $200 per couple for the entire year. That is less than $1 a day for a year. We encourage you to consider your participation fee as an investment in your marriage. This would make a great Christmas, birthday, or anniversary gift! Sign-up on or before Sunday, January 15, and get a $50 discount, which means all four Grace Marriage Enrichment Sessions and access to Grace Marriage at Home for a total of $150.
