                         Marriage Ministry

  Beginning - for Life   

Relationships can build and strengthen or rip apart

               a family, a church, a community.

Since 2009 we have focused on deepening commitment in marriage

               and assisting towards better parenting.


Annual weekend retreats are held each February at Ocean City.

     Sharing sponsorship and the responsibilities with us are:

          the Linden Linthicum and Mount Zion United Methodist Churches,

               the Maranatha Adventist Fellowship, and

                    the Middletown Adventist Church.
