Marriage 2.0:  Taking your marriage to the next level.  A short-term group to learn skills to enhance your marriage. Before you get married, we provide marital mentoring to help you get started. Now that you are married, this small group will take you to the next level in your relationship. We explore how to maintain or improve your relationship with your spouse. We focus on couples who have been married less than six years. Although others who have been married longer are certainly welcome. It meets Sunday mornings at the church (BR campus, room 110) during second service. Childcare is available through the Trinity Kids program.  For more information, contact Steve Wheeler.
