Church invites couples to learn how dating makes marriages better on Feb. 22

The First Baptist Church of Taft invites everyone to a Date Night Challenge on Friday Feb. 22 from 7 to 9 p.m.

This is for all couples who want to make their marriages better.

Studies show that those who date regularly enjoy their marriage more and that they last longer.

The program includes a showing of a DVD which filmed Focus on the Family's event featuring comedian Michael Jr, award-winning musician Mark Schultz, pastor Ted Cunningham's call for a marriage-centered family, and marriage tips from Dr. Greg Malley and his wife Erin.

Childcare is available, but we ask for pre-registration of children so we know how many to plan for. We're also asking for a $2 donation per child to help cover the cost of materials and snacks.

There will also be some snacks for the adults as well as the opportunity to have your picture taken as a couple.

We will e-mail the photo to you or have a copy made which you can pick up later.

There will be some great door prizes you can win to help you plan your next date.

There is no charge for this event—other than the childcare. For more information or to register for the childcare, please call the church office at 763-3138 during normal business hours. First Baptist Church is located at 220 North St.
