Experience love that mirrors Christ's relationship with His followers.

Marriage is God’s creation, His design for us to experience relational intimacy and love that mirrors the love relationship Christ has with His followers. At Northwoods, we offer marriage classes and groups throughout the year that will help your relationship grow, no matter where you're at.

Classes are designed for people who are engaged or thinking about marriage, and they will benefit couples who have a strong marriage and want to keep growing, couples who are feeling stuck and want to move ahead, newlyweds seeking to build a strong foundation, or couples who are ready to call it quits.
