Oak Hill Baptist Church is providing a night of fun for married couples of all ages in the local community.
It’s the second annual marriage event, this Sunday night, Feb. 17, starting at 6 p.m.
Last year’s event was a great success, and the hope is to include even more couples from the community this year.
The event is encouraging, fun and free. The theme this year is “The Love Boat,” and the church will be decorated in appropriate fashion.
The evening will feature prizes and laughs, scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, a shared message and discussion with the Rev. Doug Wolter about ways to maintain a happy and healthy marriage, and some beautiful contemporary worship songs led by the Praise Band.
The evening is intended for married couples of all ages and all faiths. It is an adults only evening, as no child care will be provided at the church.
Char Lauger, one of the organizers of the second annual event, that ties in with the Valentine’s Day holiday, said the evening is a “win-win” for husbands, even if they don’t win a prize.
“They can earn points with their wives by taking them out for a free and fun evening and while they are there, they can dip a strawberry or two into the chocolate fountain and feed it to their special someone,” Lauger said.
Organizers say, “come aboard, we are expecting you for something delightful and new,” the second annual marriage event this Sunday at the Oak Hill Baptist Church.
