Marriage Sundays

Grace Covenant Church 4600 Brookfield Corporate Dr. Chantilly, VA 20151 United States
About the Event
Marriage is no light matter for God. In fact, He was the very first to conceive of the idea. That's right, marriage was His divine notion. Because of its divine origin, marriage is most certainly sacred and set apart from all else. God designed it to be a reflection of the relationship He has with His people, and it's meant to be a special covenant between one man and one woman. Throughout this biblical study, we'll be delving into God's grand plan for marriage. Our goal is to help couples build a solid marriage that's rooted in God's Word. We'll aim to gain insight into how God's design and plan can guide us to build strong and lasting marriages. Are you interested in exploring the foundations of marriage from God's perspective? Then we welcome you to join us on the second Sunday of every month, beginning July 9th through September 10th, at 1pm for this biblical study.
