Marriage: more than just a piece of paper

Does your life feel like your stuck living the same day over and over as Bill Murray’s character did in “Groundhog Day”? For many, marriage feels repetitive, academic and sometimes boring. God definitely has more in store for people than a tedious life. Rock Church believes God created marriage to bless, not burden us, with a companion in the journey of life. Discover during this series starting Feb. 2 the joy God intended marriage to be. For more info visit www.rock-church.org.
