Dating your spouse is beneficial to your marriage. The National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia lists 5 reasons based on strong statistics about the importance of dating.

Engaged couples, newlyweds, and “oldy-weds” are encouraged to attend. Each Date Night begins at 5pm and will include a brief overview of the topic which will set the stage for discussion. Couples are then sent out for their own private date.  Free childcare will be available for children up to age 11 (6th grade) beginning at 4:45pm and ending 8:00pm.

The Dates will be held on the fourth Saturday of each month. Monthly attendance is not required; however, there is great benefit to participating regularly. Dates will begin at 5:00pm in the Chapel at the Pender Rd. office through November and the Date in December and thereafter will be at the completed church building on Lee Highway.

The cost of participation is $40.00 per couple for all the dates and the resources – and there will be a chance to win fabulous prizes given each date night. Please do not let the cost prohibit your participation; scholarships are available. Advance registration for childcare is required. Please register by September 13, 2019 so that we can plan for enough materials and adequate childcare. The fee is payable online or on the first Date Night, September 28, 2019.
