Marriage Enrichment

bride, couple, groom

Before the Fall, God created and gave His blessing to marriage between Man and Woman. Marriage is also an image of the relationship between Christ and His Bride, the Church. The holiness of marriage is key to understanding why we may seek this vocation. As pastors, church workers, and congregations seek to preserve and uphold this holy estate, there is need to provide encouragement and continued support to husbands and wives throughout their marriage. These compiled resources allow for further strengthening of marriages whether these couples are newly-weds or life-long partners.
