Couples’ Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church

Couples' Nights Out @ Platte Woods United Methodist Church | Platte Woods | Missouri | United States

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 2018/2019 season. Our study is based on the book “Sheet Music: Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage” by Dr. Kevin Leman. Dr. Leman offers frank information from a Christian perspective along with practical suggestions to improve intimacy. For more information and to order a copy for yourselves look up “Sheet Music” by Dr. Kevin Leman.

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.
