Do you want to make your marriage as strong as it can be? First United Methodist Church of Oak Ridge is hosting “Adventures in Marriage: Fun, Faith, and Fellowship to Grow Your Marriage,” a seminar on Friday and Saturday at the church.
The seminar will be led by Julie and Jay Baumgardner. Julie is the president and chief executive officer of First Things First, an award-winning nonprofit in Chattanooga that supports marriage and family life. As a passionate advocate for healthy marriage and family, Baumgardner frequently speaks on these issues both locally and nationally.
In addition to her weekly column on family issues in the Chattanooga Times Free Press that reaches 100,000 households, she also hosts a weekly talk show on public television, “First Things First with Julie Baumgardner,” discussing topics relevant to marriage and family.
Jay Baumgardner is vice president for community relations at Blood Assurance, a nonprofit blood bank in Chattanooga. The Baumgardners have been married 24 years and have one grown daughter.
The event is from 6-9 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-noon Saturday. The cost for the seminar is $10 per couple, and free childcare is available with registration.
