Marriage Class: What Did You Expect?

Mondays, Jan 27 - Mar 30 | 7-8:30pm

 

Somehow, someway, every marriage becomes a struggle.

Everyone’s marriage morphs into something they didn’t intend it to be. At some point you need something sturdier than romance. You need something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. You need changed expectations, you need radical commitments, and, most importantly, you need grace. 

Join us for 'What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage' by Paul Tripp
