Marriage Preparation

Every year, CrossRoads offers the following  for couples preparing to be married.


Engaged Encounter Weekend

Engaged Encounter introduces couples to a communication technique they can use to effectively foster a deeper knowledge and understanding of one another. The presenters will teach some basic concepts and truths that will be invaluable to know in the first years of marriage. They will also share the joys, troubles and victories that they have encountered in their own marriages around these topics. You will then be given opportunities, alone as a couple, to discuss the challenges that you will face, such as maintaining open communication and resolving conflicts over such important matters as in-laws, money planning, and sex.

Next Engaged Encounter Weekend - March 2018. Watch for the date to be announced and for registration in early January 2018.
