Marriage Ministry Weekend 2022

What Comes After “I Do”?: Building a Marriage the Matters:

Christ Church presents a BRAND-NEW Ministry Opportunity for….Your Marriage! Let’s be honest. When was the last time you really focused on your marriage? Join us on October 28-30, 2022 for a Marriage Ministry Weekend led by guest speakers, Beth and Chuck Simmons. Beth and Chuck have spoken nationally on marriage and family building for over 25 years and love sharing practical wisdom and spiritual insights gained through the year with friends of all ages.

Whether you’re newly engaged or have been married for 40 years, this weekend is what every marriage needs. Join engaging, dynamic sessions that will help you grow closer together, equip you to weather life’s difficult seasons and learn what it means to have a Christ-Centered marriage. This weekend will be fun, entertaining, and most importantly, impactful.

The weekend includes three meals (Friday night dinner, Saturday snacks and lunch). Childcare is provided for children up to 5K. For a detailed schedule of events, see the information below.
