Young Married

As a young married couple, you are faced with the possibility of merging two different faiths, different needs and backgrounds. This stage in life is especially challenging if there are infants and young children. Is church a burden or a blessing?

Whether you are done with school or not, you have only been married a short time (1 and 5 years) and we are interested in developing a perspective as to your likes and dislikes as this relates to church and what needs must be met to make church a safe haven.

Please take a few minutes to answer a few questions.
