At Jacob’s Well, we believe that marriage is a covenant ordained by God. It requires care, tending, and work. Here are some of the upcoming ways that we support marriages in our community:

Marriage Course: Creating Connection within Marriage
Creating Connections within Marriage is an 8-week course, facilitated by Bethany Butler-Myers, LCSW with advanced training in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy). This 8 week class will focus on the basic components of romantic relationship and will help couples identify the things that get in the way of feeling connected and close to each other. At times, we all become lost or confused in our relationships, and we often get stuck in negative patterns of responding to each other. Within this class, we will begin to look at how these patterns develop and how to create an exit out of them. This class will help individuals better understand their own emotional responses and needs, and the responses and needs of their spouse. The goal will be to provide couples with opportunities to find moments of connection with each other and begin conversations that will help deepen trust and intimacy.
The next session will be in January 2017, with registration starting in early December.
