Couples Mentoring

Couples Mentoring

Premarital
Weddings are for a day; marriage is for a lifetime! A mentoring couple helps an engaged couple prepare for marriage by starting with them three to six months before the wedding and staying with them at least one year after the marriage.

"Good to Great" Marriages
It has been said that the greatest enemy to a great marriage is a good marriage. That's why so few couples in a good marriage aspire to something better. They look around at other couples and realize they aren't doing too badly. "At least we don't have their problems. We're doing okay," they think to themselves. But by default, they may become complacent. Your partner and your marriage deserve your best. Marriage Mentors can help you start the walk toward "greatness" in your marriage.

PREMARITAL AND SERIOUSLY DATING WORKSHOP

 

Saturday, November 19, 2016 8:15 am to 4:00 pm 

God has a dream for your marriage. Join us for an interactive Marriage, Premarital and Seriously Dating Workshop, sponsored by the Christ Church of Oak Brook Marriage Ministry.

We will discuss topics critical to pursuing the joy of marriage and help you gain an understanding of how to handle some of the common troubles that can occur as two lives join together as one. Communication, managing conflict, forgiveness, finances, romance and establishing shared goals are subjects you will be discussing with your partner. Our desire is for you to leave with a new understanding of each other and to gain the tools to handle common early marriage issues in a positive way.

The fee is $50.00 per couple ($25.00 per person - please register each person individually). Fees are waived for couples getting married at Christ Church or those being married by a Christ Church pastor.

For additional information or to obtain the discount code, email Susan Mech, smech@cc-ob.org.
