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 Spring 2019 class is now full. The next class will be held Fall 2019. Check back early summer for registration.
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.
Cost is $20 per couple for supplies, payable when your group starts.
New groups will be formed for February 1, 2019. To register for Foundation Groups Spring 2019, click here.

For couples married from 4 - 64+ years: re|engage provides an opportunity for strengthening all marriages, regardless of where you see your marriage at this time. You will connect with and support other couples while reigniting and improving your own marriage. The classes consist of large group testimony/teaching and small group discussion.
Drop-ins welcome!!! Come check out re|engage any Tuesday 7 PM. Drop-in (as often as suits your schedule) for a marriage boost and information with an encouraging couple’s testimony or teaching on improving our marriages. Grace Bible Church, Anderson Campus. (Note: we do not offer childcare for drop-in visitors at this time).
Closed Groups are where the heart of re|engage growth occurs, with 5-6 couples going through a 16 week curriculum built on commitment, confidentiality, and vulnerability. If interested or for more information, please contact Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next Closed Groups are scheduled to start in August, 2019; cost is $40 per couple; child care is available for registered couples.
