October Preaching Series – “The Vow”
Wedding vows are more than a declaration of love—they hold the keys to a strong, lasting marriage. Whether you hope to get married someday or you’ve already tied the knot, discover what “The Vow'” can mean for the future. This four-week marriage series walks us through four vows they can make to build stronger marriages: the vows of priority, pursuit, partnership, and purity. If you want to be a blessing to your married friends or those friends seeking marriage, invite them here this month or watch on our website or Facebook page.  (Click here to watch the promo video!)
