Merge

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 Fall 2017. 

The next class will be held at the Anderson campus each Tuesday night, 7:00-9:00 p.m., September 19, 2017 through November 14, 2017. Alternate days/times are available, but space is limited. Please contact Dean Hoelscher for this information.

Couples can expect a few hours of homework every week. Cost is $40/couple. Registration fee is non-refundable. Completion of this class will qualify you for a $60 discount on your marriage license with the State of Texas.

Foundation Groups

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 place 4-6 couples in a group together with a more experienced mentor couples 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.  Plans are being made for Fall 2017 groups so email now to be added to the list of couples! Cost is $20 per couple. Registration fee is non-refundable.
