What is Unite!?

Unite! is our 6-week class designed for seriously dating or engaged couples. We cover topics such as communication and conflict, finances, in-laws and expectations. You will go through the class with other participating couples and be led by a mature married mentor couple. Each week we cover a different topic, taught by Grace Life pastor Dr. John Holmes and his wife Donna. The 6-week class provides the ideal opportunity for you and your significant other to process next steps in your relationship in the context of a like-minded small group.

How much does Unite! cost and what does the fee cover?

The 6-week class costs $50 per couple which includes two copies of the Ready to Wed book by Gary Smalley (one for each of you). We will have these books ready to give you on the first night of the class. You have the option to pay for the class either online via the below link or at Session One on February 4th.
