An 8-Session Small Group Bible Study for Couples

From the engagement ring to the years after the wedding band, each season of marriage requires renewed commitment, fresh perspective, and practical Biblical wisdom. Each of the 7 “rings” outlined in this 8-session study will guide couples to begin with the end in mind, ultimately leading to lasting and fulfilling relationships in every stage of marriage. Join author Jackie Bledsoe as he walks through the 7 rings: the engagement RING (the beginning), the wedding RING (the commitment), discoveRING (the real you), perseveRING (the work), restoRING (the fixing), prospeRING (the goal), and mentoRING (the payback).

This study will help you:

  • Discover the covenant you made and live out your calling as a couple.
  • Invest in your relationship with your spouse while growing in your relationship with Christ.
  • Equip yourself to thrive in each new stage of marriage.
  • Dig deeper into Scripture and your marriage relationship alongside other couples.

Ways churches can use this Bible study:

  • Pre-marital preparation courses
  • Couples counseling sessions
  • Marriage enrichment ministries
  • Small group studies
  • Mentoring opportunities
