What would stronger marriages mean for your church and its families?
What if there was a way to significantly drop the divorce rate of couples in your church?
World Wide Marriage Encounter has over 45 years in helping couples enhance their communication and strengthen their relationships, and there is documented effectiveness. The National Institute for Family Study reports that the divorce rate for couples attending a Marriage Encounter Weekend is only 2% versus the 50% rate as a national average. They also report that the Weekend experience benefits not only the couple and their marriage, but also has a positive effect on family communication and parenting.
The Marriage Encounter weekends are an enriching experience for husbands and wives to learn more effective communication in a private, couple-centered atmosphere.
Marriage Encounter-United Methodist is the oldest marriage-related Affiliate Member of the General Board of Discipleship of The United Methodist Church and is one of the marriage resources of our church.
