SMALL GROUP COURSES

THE STORY OF MARRIAGE – Once upon a time marriage was forever. It was a covenant that knit one man and one woman together, making them both stronger, nobler and more vibrant expressions of who they were created to be. They were better together than either had been on their own. During this 6-part course, John and Lisa Bevere invite you to rediscover God’s original plan and find out how your story is a part of His. This course will enrich your marriage no matter how long you have been married.  Meets Thursdays 7:30pm @ Mangawhai/Tomarata.    Contact Peter & Lynn Oakden  peter@causewaychurch.org.nz
