About this event
Sacred Marriage doesn’t tell how to build a better marriage; it shows how your marriage can help you deepen your relationship with God. From the practice of forgiveness, to the ecstasy of lovemaking, to the history you and your spouse create together, everything about your marriage is filled with the potential for discovering and revealing Christ’s character.
Day 1 – Friday, September 10, 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Day 2 – Saturday, September 11, 9:00am to 12:00pm
