Marriage Enrichment

Marriage is an adventure. All you need is love, right? Here at The Chapel we believe that while love is important, God desires much more for our most significant earthly relationship than we can ever imagine for ourselves. He desires for us to grow in Christ-likeness. For these reasons, we offer a marriage ministry that includes various opportunities for both engaged and married couples to grow. We do it in healthy, challenging and enjoyable communities where real connection can be experienced.

We offer our Marriage Enrichment studies for married couples in the spring and fall. Sept. 18-Nov. 6, 2017, we’ll be studying Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages. Questions? Contact us at marriage@chapel.org.

We offer our Becoming One pre-marital study multiple times per year. The next session will be held Sept. 15 – Nov. 3, 2017. For questions about our Becoming One study, please e-mail becomingone@chapel.org. ALL individuals should complete this questionnaire prior to attending the first Becoming One session.

Our Marriage Enrichment and Becoming One groups are hosted at our Libertyville campus throughout the year. Any couple wanting to strengthen their marriage is invited to participate.

Marriage in crisis? We can connect you with a Christian Counselor in your area or who specializes in your specific counseling need. Our team is always available to pray for you and be a listening ear in the hard times of life. Contact the Compassion Team direct line by calling 847-281-3373.
