    Marriage Restoration

     

     

    Every Monday evening

    536 N. Jackson Street, Jackson, MI. 

     

    *Workshop registrants attend at no cost.

     

    Most couples going through rough spots only see two options; painful marriage or divorce.  There is a third option: an ongoing weekly program to restore and build better marriages.  The Marriage Restoration Workshop offers hope for hurting couples, and covers critical topics, such as how to fight fair, forgiveness and repair, understanding expectations, control issues and much more.


    Many couples needing a "turn-around" in their marriage find hope and answers participating in these weekly forums. Attend as-needed to gain support from other couples while learning tools to help rebuild your relationship.
