“Marriage Matters”

SPEAKER: Troy Champ

Directly or indirectly we have all been affected by divorce. Maybe you watched your parent’s marriage fall apart as a child or maybe you know firsthand the devastation and pain that comes from broken vows and promises. As a church and as a community, we must approach the topic of divorce the way Jesus did, with abundant grace and truth. Marriage isn’t simply a commitment between two people or a piece of paper at the county clerk’s office. Marriage is a covenant made with God that has deep spiritual meaning. Marriage Matters. Whether you’re dating, married, or divorced, seek God’s grace, truth, and healing.
