We offer support for your marriage and want to help you take your next steps to become more like Jesus. Our wish is to help you develop healthy patterns in your relationship that will improve your marriage. We have several resources that are available to you.
Here are some things you can start today:
» Connect Daily – We highly encourage you to talk to your spouse every day! Schedule or set aside 20-30 minutes each day to engage in meaningful conversation.
» Pray Together Daily - We believe prayer has the power to change things! Start by simply praying 2-3 minutes each day and invite God to bring you closer to Him and closer to each other.
» Weekly Date Night – We encourage you to invest intentionally in your spouse time every single week. Try to schedule time alone where you can talk and connect with each other. If you have small children, we know that can be expensive, but you can get creative with childcare options. Perhaps you know of a family member who would watch them or a family in your small group that would trade childcare every other week.
Recommended Resources for Learning:
We recommend that you take intentional steps to improve your marriage. One of the ways you can do this is by reading about marriage and learning how you can grow.

If marriage is in your future, we offer and recommend pre-marital counseling to every engaged couple that regularly attends Vale. The engaged couple will meet once a week with a marriage mentor couple for 4-6 weeks at a location compatible with you and them. We ask that you start this process at least 3-6 months before your wedding date to ensure completion of counseling prior to getting married.
