(Feb. 3) Married People Ministry at St. Luke Ann Arbor, first event March 11

Registration now open!

St. Luke Lutheran Church on Washtenaw Rd. in Ann Arbor is excited to announce that we have started a new ministry opportunity in our congregation called Married People.  My husband, Rick, and I have been asked by David Nelson, our Director of Youth & Family Discipleship, DCE, to serve as directors for this Married People Ministry.  Our role in Married People is to integrate opportunities that will help give couples a strategy to be proactive toward building a healthy marriage. Throughout the year, we will have events that will be focusing on these Core 4 Habits: 1) Have Serious Fun   2) Respect and Love   3) Love God First   4) Practice Your Promise.


Our first event will be the Large Group Experience on Sat., March 11, 2023, 7:00-9:00 pm at St. Luke.  Our theme for the year is “Take a Step CLOSER”.  This is a one-night event consisting of music, fun & prizes, a short presentation, appetizers, and a dessert buffet.  It’s a time for couples to connect in a fun and comfortable environment. Also, in order to help alleviate the burden of babysitter expense for young couples, Married People is offering to reimburse a portion of babysitter costs for the evening. But I want to emphasize that this is an evening for ALL married couples regardless of age or number of years married.  All are invited!


So, the reason we’re sending you so much information is that we would like to also invite all the married couples at University Lutheran Chapel to attend the Large Group Experience on March 11th.  More information about online registration and ticket purchase ($10/couple) will be available soon.  We would supply you with announcements to post in your newsletter.


If this is something you would be interested in extending out to your congregation, please let us know by email, text, or call.  We’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have.


God’s Blessings,
