Marriage Matters


Calvary wants to support you in making your marriage relationship a priority. Marriage Matters offers a variety of opportunities for you and your spouse to enrich your relationship.

Marriage Matters: The Intentional Marriage Workshops
In 2016, Marriage Matters: The Intentional Marriage Workshops will continue on the first and third Sundays of each month at 11 a.m. Each month we will tackle an important topic in two-part sessions that will be led by members of our Marriage Matters leadership team, as well as some special guests. (Note: The two sessions in any given month will not duplicate one another, but you are welcome to join us for the second session if you missed the first.  Our goal is to make each and every session worth your while, regardless of the age and stage of your marriage.)

When:  The first and third Sundays of every month, 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
*Except December - We will meet on December 4 only.
Where:  In the Cafe downstairs.
Childcare is available for all ages. (Just be sure to pick them up by 12:16 p.m.)
Marriage Matters’ World Famous Keurig Coffee Machine will be available to create hot drinks throughout the year.

Announcing a new series for 2016 from Marriage Matters: The Intentional Marriage
“A Great Marriage is No Accident” Twice-Monthly Teaching and Conversation

A deeply satisfying marriage isn’t the product of chance, luck or alignment of the planets. Like a bountiful garden, a fruitful marriage is the result of ongoing attention and effort. Our new series will explore how this plays out in the day-to-day events of married life – and why the intentional marriage is worth pursuing. These sessions are for marriages of all ages, stages and conditions, including engaged couples. They will feature teaching, conversation, Q and A, and delicious hot drinks from Marriage Matters’ world-famous Keurig machine.
