Couples’ Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Jan 5 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

During the school year, PWUMC offers Couples’ Nights Out once a month (usually on the first Friday) to give couples an opportunity for an evening to themselves.

Each CNO starts with a short program (usually 30 minutes or less) followed by a date night where they discuss what they’ve learned.

We are excited to announce our Couples Nights Out program for the 2017/2018 season. We will be using the book by Francis and Lisa Chan, “You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity”. Francis and Lisa will address the question that many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a great marriage?” Learn more about resources available for this study.

Cost is $10 per couple each month when registered 10 days before the event. (Reservations after that will be charged a $20 late fee).  This covers the adult program AND childcare. Childcare drop-off is available starting at 6:15 p.m., with pickup by 9 p.m.

Join us for a monthly fellowship on Thursday, January 18 for Empty or Emptying Nesters!  Explore the opportunities that lie ahead as you rediscover your faith, your personal identity, and your new family identity now that your children are launching from home.
