|Ben and Kaija Paddock, Marriage Pastor|
The decision to marry is one of the most important choices we make in life. A marriage involves much more than a beautiful wedding. It is an ongoing relationship that is always developing. Our relationship with our spouse mirrors our relationship with Christ. Both relationships have no limits. We can always grow deeper in love. Our desire is to help marriages be grounded in Christ so that they will enjoy a lifetime of learning more about each other.
The Great Date Experience
We have four date ideas for you to complete in the next twelve months. You will learn to grow together spiritually, emotionally, and physically through these dates. The dates were designed with you in mind. Husband and wife must both be willing to be challenged. Follow the instructions and ideas and we promise that you will have an experience to remember. If you are interested, see Ben and Kaija Paddock for details.
Weekend to Remember
We encourage our married couples to attend a Weekend to Remember. What you and your spouse will hear during the Weekend to Remember is the result of more than three decades of biblical research by a team of men and women who refine what it takes to have a successful marriage and family. The speakers will show you exactly how to pursue a marriage that really works through stories of their own breakthroughs and blunders. You will leave the weekend with encouragement, hope, and practical tools to build and grow your relationship.
From time to time Mts. Runn will host our own marriage retreat. This is a great opportunity to get away with other couples in the church and learn more about marriage. These retreats are great not only because you learn how to become closer as a couple but you also get to learn from the testimony and fellowship of other couples in our church.
Adult Bible Fellowships
One way to enhance your marriage is to get involved in one of our Adult Bible Fellowships. These groups are filled with couples in the same stage of life. Every fellowship plans its own activities and group get togethers. Our Bible Fellowships are the best way to get to know others at Mts. Runn.
