Purpose: Provide married couples with ongoing education and inspiration to build their marriage through Biblical principles with the Church of Saint Paul community.
Vision: Married couples grow closer to God, each other and other couples in the Church.
Benefits: Members of the group receive encouragement, support, and ideas from each other as well as grow in faith, friendship and service together.
Who: Married couples at any stage whether newly married or married for many years.
Small groups: 4-6 couples members from church form with like preferences as a small groups and meet on a monthly basis in couple's homes using Christian and Catholic resources to strengthen their marriages and build supportive relationships with other couples.
Our approach: while we invite each small group within the ministry to create a group approach and style that works best for that group, we have some core beliefs that we encourage all groups to:
+ Meet monthly as a small group
+ Attend a yearly retreats together as a small group
+ Be involved in outreach through a service project
+ Attend our annual ministry kickoff celebration and enrichment
+ Plan a social outing or activity
