Pre-Marital Environments

This nine-week series of classes is fun, real, interactive, and all about getting your marriage off to a great start. Merge gives engaged and seriously-dating couples the opportunity to seek wisdom and receive counsel about marriage. We incorporate large group teaching, small group time, the leadership of seasoned “coach” couples, and a stellar curriculum to address common challenges in marriage from a Biblical perspective. Merge is a great step toward a Christ-centered marriage, and we would be honored to walk beside you as you begin your journey.

This version of Merge is specifically tailored to pre-marital couples who will become blended families. Like the original Merge, Merge:Blended is a nine-week series of classes that is fun, interactive, and all about getting your marriage off to a great start. If you and/or your significant other have children, we invite you to be part of these pre-marital sessions. You’ll experience real conversations, a curriculum that is specific to your relational needs, and the leadership of seasoned blended-family “coach” couples. Merge:Blended is your next step toward a Christ-centered marriage, home, and family.

Marriage Enrichment & Transformation

Whether your marriage is good and you want it to be great, or you are at rock-bottom and wonder if there is hope, ReEngage is a safe place to grow in your marriage. In this 14-week environment, we’ll examine God’s design for marriage and learn biblical principles that have the power to heal and transform our hearts so we can thrive in our most intimate relationships. We’ll hear encouraging stories from others who have experienced victory in the midst of hard times. And we’ll have opportunity to interact with other couples in a small group as we work through the curriculum together.
