Marriage Oneness Class Begins January 4th
Great marriages don’t just happen. We don’t want you to move from the excitement of being “just married!” to the mundane “we’re just married.” God’s design is for your marriage to thrive. We want to encourage you to pursue a thriving marriage in our 8-week class called Marriage Oneness.
Marriage Oneness equips couples to grow in true intimacy, connection, and purpose by looking at Biblical principles with application exercises to complete together on date nights.
Each couple will be a part of small-group discussion covering topics like Communication, Conflict Resolution, Spiritual Beliefs, Money, Sexual Intimacy, and Roles & Responsibilities.
The next 8-week class will begin on January 4th at 6:30 PM at our South Gorham Campus. The cost of materials is $35 per couple.
Meet Brian & Judy
Brian and Judy grew up living about a half mile from each other in Gorham, Maine but didn’t really know each other until Brian asked Judy out in the summer of 1972. They were married in 1974. They received no premarital instruction or counseling prior to their wedding.
They raised three daughters and for over three decades they struggled in their marriage. They failed at understanding God’s purpose for marriage and subsequently failed to follow His plan for marriage as He designed it.
The ashes of their broken marriage culminated in a separation in 2010 that lasted intermittently for nearly five years. God used this time in their lives to radically change their perspectives in their individual relationships with Him and towards their marriage. They say that God used the experience to give them both a passion to understand His purpose and plan for marriage and a vision to share with others what they have learned from their mistakes.
In His time, God reconciled and restored their marriage to what He had always intended it to be.
When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now.
- C.S. Lewis
