“Helping couples LEAP into a greater relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and their mates.”
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Mark 10:9 KJV
TCWW Marriage Ministry (MCM) would like to welcome you and your mate to what may be the most growth-producing experience in your Christian lives! This ministry can be a doorway to deeper relationships with God and your spouse. As these two relationships become more intimate, you will grow on self-understanding. As you better understand your emotions, attitudes, needs, and abilities, you will also have a deeper understanding of others. Thus, all of your relationships will be enhanced.

Fighting For Your Marriage
Queenston; Sundays beginning September 11th at 12pm
Marriages today require more faith, extra skill in communication, conflict management, and negotiation between partners than ever before. This class teaches that a husband and wife should think of themselves as a team. Conflict is more likely for spouses when they see problems as “me against you” rather than “us against the problem.” The key to preventing marital distress, divorce, and unhappiness is to reduce the risk factors and to increase the protective factors that include all the good things in marriage—God’s spiritual and religious involvement, sensuality, friendship, fun, and commitment.
