Marriage Conference - Habits of a Healthy Marriage

Posted by Alan on January 24, 2020


Dr. Paul TrippFriday, February 28  |  6:00 - 8:30 pm
Saturday, February 29  |  8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Calvary Baptist Church, Derby, Kansas
Child Care provided (age 11 and under)
Friday dinner and Saturday breakfast included
Cost is $20 per person
Registration ended February 16.


Every marriage is guided by a set of habits. The question is: are they healthy habits that result in a God-honoring and joyful marriage, or are they bad habits that lead to a self-centered and strained marriage?
In this new 4-session seminar, pastor, marriage counselor, and best-selling author Dr. Paul Tripp will detail the good habits that need to be planted while identifying the bad habits that need to be uprooted for the marriage of your dreams to blossom.


Childcare will provided both Friday evening and Saturday morning. Sign kids up on the online registration form or on the bulletin board by the church office.

Each child will need to bring a sack lunch for dinner on Friday evening and snacks for Saturday morning.
Please feed them breakfast before arriving on Saturday morning as it will not be provided.

Please do not send anything that needs to be heated up or specially prepared.

We will provide some small portions of snacks during the event. If your child has special dietary needs, please pack some appropriate snacks.

Join us this Christmas Season!

Good News...Great Joy

Christmas at Calvary is a special time to remember the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. The announcement of His birth gave hope to a world bogged down by sin and despair. We hear this good news and can have great joy when we receive God's gift of salvation!

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Luke 2:10

No Wednesday Prayer Service or Awana Clubs on December 25 or January 1.
