Hope for Couples

Hope for Couples

Hope for Couples is our team dedicated to helping couples build more meaningful and satisfying relationships with each other. Our first program, “Merge” focused on foundational principles in establishing a life-long relationship. Events like Marriage Wars encourage couples to connect in fun ways. In the future, Hope for Couples plans to roll out more programs to meet the diverse needs of couples at different stages of their relationships.

Merge - Pre-marriage Group

Merge is an eight-session premarital group designed to help couples prepare for a lifetime of love and commitment. Through expert guidance, practical tools, and interactive sessions, Merge aims to equip couples with the skills and knowledge they need to navigate the ups and downs of married life. 

Completing Merge is a requirement for any couple desiring to be married by a pastor at Hope Church.
