National Marriage Week Dayton

Do you want to grow your church and help your community have more success in marriage? Join the movement during National Marriage Week (February 7-14) — a collaborative campaign to strengthen individual marriages, reduce the divorce rate, and build a culture that fosters strong marriages!

We know that marriage greatly benefits children and prevents povertyHere are just a few activities that you can do to grow your church and serve your community: 

  • Preach and teach about marriage during National Marriage Week
  • Distribute our church bulletin insert
  • Post any marriage event all year long on our online National Calendar
  • Use our tool kit to get coverage for your efforts
  • Launch a new marriage class or special event. Here's just a few helpful resources:

Whether your marriage needs to be reignited, or is in need of a complete resurrection, re|engage is a safe place for couples to reconnect. View a short video about the course here, and get in touch with them here. You can learn more at www.reengage.org.

Far Hills Church hosts a re|engage course: 
Whether you’ve been married 2 months or 40 years, whether you would rate your relationship a 2 or an 8, re|engage examines God’s design for marriage and applies principles from the Bible to guide couples towards growth in their relationship. You’ll hear stories from other couples that have been through similar struggles and experienced God’s grace and healing in their relationship and you’ll connect with a group of other couples working through the process.

Are you ready to take the next step and see if re|engage is right for you?

Join us any Tuesday at 6:30pm.
