Staying Married

In the beginning, marriage was one of the first things that God created. Marriage is the most intimate of human relationships, and it takes ongoing intentionality to grow a thriving marital relationship. It doesn’t matter if you've been married for a week or several decades, CCC offers classes to help you grow in your marriage relationship.

Led by Bill & Teri Meier, who bring 39 years of marriage experience to the class. Jump in anytime!
