Are You Ready for a Marriage Tune-Up?

We’re all aware that our car needs a tune-up, mechanical repairs and other attention from time to time.  However, we may not be thinking that our relationships require preparation, attention and, at times, a tune-up or repair.

The Prepare-Enrich assessment is for seriously dating, engaged, and married couples who want to improve their relationship, expose potential relational landmines and prepare for a lifelong satisfying and enjoyable marriage

We will plan to start meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings in January.  There will be an introduction and questions session on January 11th and our first group gathering on January 18th. Childcare will be provided and a family meal will be available from 5 to 6:30 p.m. for a modest price. Groups will be held on other evenings in the future.  Each Prepare-Enrich group will be limited to 3 to 4 couples.  There will be a cost of $30 per couple for the online assessment and $12 for the recommended book.  We will ask couples to read a chapter a week.  Our ten-week schedule will discuss the following topics:  

1 The Meaning of Marriage   

2. Sharing Strength & Growth Areas  

3. SCOPE Personality Assessment  

4. Personal Stress Profile   

5. Communication: Assertiveness & Active Listening   

6. Conflict Resolution   

7. Financial Management
