MONTH FOR MARRIAGE
STARTING SUNDAY, MAY 7TH 2017
Each year, the Church of Living Water celebrates marriage during the month of May. We believe healthy and thriving marriages are not only good for those within the marriage covenant, but also for their children and society in general. Because of this, during our Month for Marriage we offer additional resources for couples seeking marriage or already within a covenant marriage relationship. These resources are highlighted on this page. We hope you are blessed by this year’s Month for Marriage!

Love Works 13-week Devotional, by Weyman and Susan Howard
