The strength of our communities depends on the strength of our families. Give so others can experience this. And go yourself. See more
Paula Dumas wrote -Marriages are struggling in our society, and they are the foundation of the family. This is especially true in the inner city, where more children are born to single moms than married moms. You get the idea. It's a national crisis that impacts education, crime, welfare, public health and more.
This project raises funds to host Art of Marriage events for churches serving communities in which marriages are most at-risk. Sponsoring a couple costs just $78.
FamilyLife created The Art of Marriage, a new one-and-a-half day video event built on the same biblically based content as its Weekend to Remember marriage getaway. Designed to be used by churches, small groups or as a community wide event, The Art of Marriage equips those with a passion for building godly marriages to reach thousands of couples at any time and any place.
The Art of Marriage brings together some of the most respected and influential pastors and experts on marriage and family all in one setting. It also brings a fresh approach to a video event by weaving together some of the following elements to help couples fully experience God’s design for marriage:
o engaging stories
o real-life testimonies
o man-on-the-street interviews
o humorous vignettes
The Art of Marriage consists of six video sessions and an accompanying manual that provides couples with projects to help apply the principles taught during each session. The manual is also designed for couples to use after the event by offering articles, date night ideas, and useful tips for continuing to strengthen their marriage.
FamilyLife has been helping to strengthen marriages and families for nearly 35 years in over 100 countries around the world. It's a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.
Join the launch of a new movement to put heart back into marriages by sponsoring, hosting or attending The Art of Marriage premiere event the weekend of February 11, 2011. More at www.familylife.com/artofmarriage.
