MARRIAGE

Building Connections When The Pressure Is On  

Have you thought about enriching your marriage in a time like this? In the midst of balancing homeschooling, working from home, social distancing, and learning to adjust to our new normal, it is easy to let our marriages fall through the cracks. Now is the perfect time to invest in your marriage and grow together as a couple. 


Using the practices from Geri & Pete Scazzero (www.emotinallyhealth.org), we created a resource to help!

In our video, you will hear from Crossway couples and learn how to practice "Community Temperature Reading" within your our own marriage and family.

Preparing For Marriage

We strive to prepare couples for lifelong marriages that honor and glorify God. We want to prepare couples for their marriage and we want to provide tools to help enrich marriages also.


Premarital Assessment: Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts Assessment https://www.symbis.com is designed to obtain a clear picture of your personal relationship for life long love. Each person will individually take a 30 minute online survey. This survey generates a combined report that is sent to and reviewed by a trained SYMBIS facilitator couple. The engaged couple will then meet with the facilitator couple to unpack their report together over a 2-3 two-hour session. Cost is $35.00 per couple. To sign up for the assessment, please contact John & Jancy Sweeney.


Enrichment

Every marriage benefits from a periodic check-in. Parenting, career, family responsibilities, health, and just life in general, impact the vibrancy of releationship. Over time, couples often lose the ability and desire to talk about their relationship.


Prepare/Enrich is an excellent tool with substantial evidence supporting its reliability and validity of its scores and their uses. Every couples takes the assessment that cost $35.00 and then meets with one of our couples to go over the assessment.  Whether you have been just married or have been marries for 60 years, marriage mentors are ready to facilitate, encourage and guide other couples by sharing personal experience and a biblical perspective on marriage. Visit Prepare & Enrich for more information about the program or contact John & Jancy Sweeney or Jim & Monique Gagne
