2)  Use these tools to help you tell your story to one couple or an entire congregation!

Prayer Chain
According to the Bible, the power of prayer is, quite simply, the power of God, who hears and answers prayer, and He can and will answer us according to His perfect will and timing. If you would like to support and pray for encountered couples, their families, and friends as part of the Lutheran Marriage Encounter Prayer Chain, please email Dave & Jen Kern to add your email address to their “send” list.

WWME Gifts & Jewelry
Perhaps you noticed the Marriage Encounter logo items used on the Weekend or worn by the presenting team couples during the Weekend. If you are interested in acquiring logo items, visit this website where you can find and order Marriage Encounter candles, permanent name badges, stickers, jewelry, and paper items available for home and personal use. Marriage Encounter uses for all of our logo items, but is in no way connected to it in a business sense.
