‘Marriage Savers’ coming to area
MOREHEAD - The Family Foundation is bringing Mike McManus of “Marriage Savers” for a 10-city tour of Kentucky the first week of October to give a fresh vision of marriage to pastors and laity on the frontline of ministry. He will address the opportunity to create Community Marriage Covenants among church leaders to help better equip new couples getting married as well as to help strengthen and renew existing marriages.
The area meeting will be from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 30 at First Church of God at 576 Sunset Drive in Morehead.
McManus is the author of numerous books on strengthening marriages and reducing divorce while highlighting the myths that suggest cohabitation is a model or a preparation for marriage. He has also written a weekly syndicated column since 1981 titled “Ethics and Religion.” His counsel for preparing, building and restoring marriages has proven successful everywhere it has been implemented — in more than 200 communities and 10,000 churches nationwide.
Each free event will be about two hours long and will include a 60-minute presentation and a time of Q&A and interaction.
For more information, call (859) 255-5400.
