Marriage takes a kind of courage, tolerance, and sacrifice which we might have been aware of at the altar but could only feel the gravity of years later. Love, though beautiful, any married couple has come to learn, takes work and can be painful at times.
How interesting then that Jesus calls himself "The Bridegroom," and His Bride the Church. Jesus’s pain, suffering, and work are generative and life giving, and not simply the end of the story. As Christian’s our hope is that Christ’s sufferings might redeem our own, uniting them to a greater purpose we could not have initially understood. If you and your spouse feel weary and are wondering how in the world to keep things afloat please join us for a workshop on navigating the struggles of commitment, communication and building a marriage which can receive and weather the storms which inevitably we face to love one another for the long haul.
This workshop is for couples who are interested in openly discussing their relationship with other couples and is led by Jonny May, LPC, and Emily Griesbeck, LPC-Intern (supervised by Lora Ferguson LPC-S). This workshop will be a mix of open discussion led by Jonny and Emily and theological teaching on marriage from the pastoral and ministry staff.
The workshop is limited to 10 couples per semester. The cost is $150. Scholarships are available. Register using the form below. Those on the waitlist this semester will receive priority registration for the next workshop.
