God is the Creator of marriage and we have a 100% chance of success if we do it His way!  This is such a positive and optimistic statement, but as you take in the truths presented in this class, you too will find yourself able to experience it. The material is designed to make a bad marriage good, and a good marriage great.  So whether you have been married a long time, or are just starting out, you will find this to be a time of great inspiration in your relationship.

Gary and Brenda have been involved in marriage ministry and mentoring for the past 20 years.  They consider it a great privilege to be part of the healing that God loves to do in the lives of His people.  Having experienced difficult struggles in their own relationship, they are eager to see husbands and wives use Biblical principles so that their marriages glorify God and achieve all that the Lord desires.

The class consists of a multiple-week home fellowship video series held on Sunday evenings. The videos are used as a starting point for learning, but a great deal more insight is gained in the time of discussion and fellowship that follows.  A wide range of practical topics are covered, such as:

• Biblical Foundations of Marriage

• The 4 Foundational Laws of Marriage

• Understanding and Meeting Your Spouse's Needs

• Avoiding Destructive Behaviors

• The Power of Positive Communication

• Financial Management in Marriage

• Raising Great Children

• Managing Blended Families

• Parents - Past and Present

• Sexual Fulfillment in Marriage

Gary and Brenda present these topics in a transparent and real-life style, allowing you to see how God is working things out in their own lives on a daily basis. Those interested in participating in an upcoming series may do so by contacting the offices of Calvary Chapel of Apple Valley or call at (760) 240-3633 for more information. Because this is a home fellowship, space is usually limited (to about 10 couples, give or take). Each session is approximately 2 hours.  No child care is provided, since this is meant to be a night out for couples and a time for focusing on each other.

Join us for the next series, and be prepared to laugh a whole lot, make new friends, and fall in love with your mate all over again!
