Merge is a nine-week class for engaged and seriously dating couples that consists of large group teaching and small group table discussion. Each small group consists of three to four engaged OR dating couples with a married mentor couple. We cover topics such as communication and conflict, finances, sexual intimacy, in-laws and expectations. The purpose is to prepare seriously dating and engaged couples for the life-long commitment of marriage using biblical principles. For engaged couples, if Merge is being offered at a time that works with your engagement period and wedding date, we highly recommend that you sign up for this class.
The next Merge class will be held at the Anderson campus on Tuesday nights, Fall 2018 7:00 - 8:45pm starting in September. Couples can expect a few hours of homework every week. Cost is $40/couple and completion of this class will qualify you for a $60 discount on your marriage license with the State of Texas. Registration fee is non-refundable. Check back here for registration information late summer.

Foundation Groups meet in a home group environment on various evenings and are comprised of couples who have been married 3 years or less. These groups are designed to establish couples for a lifetime of marital oneness and ministry. This is accomplished by placing 4-6 couples in a group together with a more experienced mentor couple who takes them through 9-15 months of curriculum. As the couples establish a solid foundation for their marriage, we hope they become more like Jesus, experience healthy community, grow in oneness with their spouse, and learn to live on mission with their life and marriage.
New groups will be starting Fall 2018. Cost is $20 per couple for supplies, payable when your group starts. Please complete the form here to be added to the wait list.
