Co-ed group
Thursdays, 7:30–9:15pm
Chicago-Rogers Park (Clark and Devon)


Dedicate a couple months to invest in your marriage and build a stronger relationship! All married couples of any age and stage are welcome.

We hope to provide a comfortable learning environment where couples can strengthen their relationship. We’ll meet the first night to chat and get to know each other and share our stories. The following seven sessions will follow the video course called The Marriage Course.

The Marriage Course is designed for couples looking for practical support to strengthen their relationship. It is designed to help couples build strong foundations, learn to communicate more effectively, and resolve differences well. The course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background.

We’ll start each night with some snacks and group conversation. Then, we’ll watch the video as it leads us on a topic with questions that are talked through in private discussion between each couple. Couples don’t share anything about their relationship other than with their partner.
