Art of Marriage ABF Elective

Marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a true art form. This fall’s Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) elective, The Art of Marriage® weaves together expert teaching, real-life stories, humorous vignettes, and more to portray both the challenges and the beauty of God’s design.

Led by Dennis and Tina Bourdo, the Art of Marriage elective lasts seven weeks. There will be two sessions offered during the fall:

Session 1: September 3 – October 22
Session 2: October 29 – December 10

Class size is limited to ten couples for each session. Cost of the required manual is $15 per couple. Use this link to sign up for your preferred session. Sign up is also available at the Media Center.

The curriculum of the class consists of video sessions, group discussions, and an accompanying manual that provides couples with projects to help apply the principles taught during each session. The manual is also designed for couples to use after the event by offering articles, date night ideas, and useful tips for continuing to strengthen their marriage.
