This past Friday night at Mt Vernon, we had Table for Two, a periodic event we have for married couples where the church watches the kids and the married couples get a date designed to strengthen their marriage. Thankful to all the volunteers that helped make this happen! This past Friday, we introduced The Great Date Experiment from Northpoint Community Church. A healthy and successful church based out of Atlanta, Northpoint operates their MarriedLife marriage ministry on six great principles. The principles are so great I want to share them with you. Thanks Northpoint!
