The Lutheran Course

Marriage enrichment with
a Lutheran twist!

Each session begins with a meal followed by a large-group DVD presentation. Presenters bring their own particular theological expertise and life experience to topics central to married life, yet the point of each presentation remains the same: marriage is a sometimes frustrating, oftentimes humorous, but ultimately gracious gift of God.

Sense of humor required.
