Couples’ Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church
Feb 2 @ 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 check-in is available starting at 6:15 p.m., with pickup by 9 p.m.
