ONE FOR LIFE

 

One For Life is a 8-week course written and designed specifically for those getting married for the very first time.

Relationships span the entire spectrum of questions that could be asked. No manual, no program, no counselor has the answer to every question. What you will find in this course are principles that, when applied, answer those eternal questions.

This won't be a "feel good" course where couples just sit back and soak up the material. Instead, it's an exciting, interactive, revealing time between couples that are going through the exact same things at the exact same time.




MISSION

Is “till death do us part” really possible?

Do you really know the person you are marrying?

Do you really know yourself?

This course is meant for seriously dating couples. Why "seriously dating"? Because "seriously dating" is a step toward what is meant to be a life-long commitment. This course aims to take couples from the only life they know of, the single life, and prepare for the amazing journey called "marriage". During the eight lessons, you will be challenged to look at your own life and discover what you will be taking into your marriage. The life application with each lesson will enable both of you to explore and deal with issues and set goals for a purpose-filled future.
