Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can we bring children?
A. Yes! But they must be in the provided childcare. The kids will be separated into Babies (0-14 months), Walkers (15 months – 2), Pre-K (3-4), and then Kids 5-12. Childcare is included in the price of admission for the weekend. Parents of babies, please provide what they need for food/drink (ex: bottle, etc.). All other kids will be provided with Friday dinner, Saturday Breakfast, Saturday Lunch, and snacks. Please let us know of any specific allergies. All childcare workers have been background checked.
Q: Will I have to engage in group discussion?
A. No, it is a video event designed with questions for you and your couple to answer individually and together.
Q: Can singles or engaged attend The Art of Marriage?
A. ABSOLUTELY! In fact, we HIGHLY recommend it. The event will give individuals a clear understanding of wha a marriage commitment truly means, and is also a great foundation for engaged couples who are soon to be married.
Q: I have been divorced. Will I feel uncomfortable at this event?
A. We understand that divorce is a reality, and we have designed this event with that reality in mind. We have tried to focus on the condition of your current marriage, rather than creating guilt for mistakes made in the past. We also recognize that even in such an environment, one might feel uncomfortable at times because of past memories and regrets that are stirred up. Our prayer is that you would come to this event excited to make you current marriage a strong, healthy, lasting one, even if it means dealing with some painful memories.
Q: We have a great marriage. Why should we attend the event?
A. Every marriage relationship is in a constant state of movement: You are either growing closer together or further part. Unfortunately, it seems that the natural inclination of human hearts is to drift apart over time. Every marriage needs a tune-up from time to time, no matter how well it might be running. This event is designed to heighten even the best of marriages. It also serves as a great reminder that you are God’s gift to each other.
