Let's Talk Marriage

Love, laughter and happily ever after!
Have you been married for 50 years, newly engaged or somewhere in-between? Join us once a month for our marriage group, "Let's Talk Marriage." We will spend time in fellowship with other couples and hear topical discussions from our Married-Life team and special guests. This group will meet on the third Sunday of each month at 11:00am in the Fellowship Hall.
Our next meeting is April 21 at 11:00am.
