"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one.”
One of the most beautiful and yet difficult things in life is that of blending two lives into one this sacrament of marriage. Our Metropolis continues to provide Marriage Preparation Seminars which are offered once a month virtually.
The program has been developed and expanded to include instruction, couples activities, and group discussion on the nature of marriage, the struggles along the way, and strategies for preparing for this journey. Although many couples openly report that they are skeptical about spending a half day on their preparation for marriage, by the end of the semester, nearly all of them have reported learning a lot about marriage and appreciating the time spent as couples discussing the issues they will encounter once married. Most of the couples are Inter-faith, and many overwhelmed with the logistics of planning a wedding. In the midst of the pressures on their time, many would not take the time to talk about issues related to their marriage if it were not a requirement of our Metropolis. As we continue to expand the program, couples are requesting additional opportunities for retreats directed at young couples.
Plans are currently underway to offer an over-night “Marriage Enrichment” Program that will then be offered several times a year at our new Retreat House at the St. Methodios faith and Heritage Center in New Hampshire. Metropolitan Methodios has made a commitment to offer ongoing retreat programs which will focus on “Family Ministry,” including Marriage Enrichment, Family Camps, Young Adult Ministry, etc.
