Grace Filled Marriage

Registration Deadline: Sunday, Sept. 5

Facilitators: Roger & Pam Bartley
Most married couples start out with a lot of love in their hearts for each other. But real-time life and the personal issues they bring to the arrangement put that love to quite a test.
What's interesting is that for most marriages, the thing that's most lacking in the relationships isn't love; it's grace. When God's grace is the active ingredient in marriages, it brings the best out of the partners. If you would like to know how to make God's grace the defining feature of your love story, this study is for you. Class size limited to 10.
