LIFE GROUPS

Each fall, Blackhawk starts up a number of Life Groups that are designed specifically for couples in their first few years of marriage. These groups go through a 12-session marriage curriculum designed to give couples the tools they need to successfully navigate the complexities of marriage. To learn more or to sign up, contact us.

COUNSELING

It’s a myth that counseling is only for marriages in trouble. Couples in perfectly healthy marriages regularly meet with counselors to be proactive and to sharpen their communication and conflict-resolution skills. If you think your marriage would benefit from seeing a counselor, check out Blackhawk’s Care Resources. Financial assistance is available.

SUGGESTIONS

Please contact us if you have suggestions of additional resources that you think would benefit married couples.
