A Marriage Encounter Event provides a process for couples to renew their own marriage privately, away from the distractions of everyday life. It is wonderful for marriages at all stages. Those with good marriages can make them better; those with weak ones can strengthen them; and those with cold ones can warm them. Those in the early years of marriage can deepen the communication and love in their marriage to keep it strong through inevitable crises. Those in the middle years of marriage can revive and strengthen their love to help them survive the challenges and pressures that life and society throw at them. Those in the silver and golden years of their marriages can delight in the wonder of deeper trust and communication still to come.

If you’ve ever walked through our Messiah Hall, you’ve probably seen the colorful oil painting of the little “Children of Tanzania.” Did you know this work was done by John Turner, brother of our church member Brian Turner? John is a self-taught impressionist who paints nature in all its beauty. If you haven’t yet walked through our art gallery to see John’s work, please take a moment to do so.
