Reflecting on Marriage
Reflecting on Marriage

Our Under 35 and 45-65 Sunday School groups are wrapping up a class on marriage based on a book by Tim Keller and taught by Alan Judge and Skeets Simonis. Two of the couples in the class—Lane and Emily Polak (married 2 years) and Ramsay and Elizabeth Nuwayhid (married 27 years)—share… [more]
