A 35 YEAR HISTORY OF BUILDING STRONGER MARRIAGES
More than a dozen couples currently participate in First Presbyterian Church’s monthly Marriage Fellowship group. In 1976 the first three couples attended a national Marriage Encounter Weekend and the local membership has grown from that dedicated base.
The principle of MarriageFellowship is that in faith greater communication builds stronger marriages. Couples learn, at a Marriage Fellowship weekend, the techniques for increasing communication. Since the very first couples were encountered, couples from FPC have met monthly, usually in the homes of member couples, for conversation and good food. It’s a formula that has worked well.
Although some early members have moved away or passed on, there has been a ready supply of couples who have heard about Marriage Fellowship and have joined the group every year.
