The Third Option is a program to build better marriages. It is designed for all married couples and can be used both as marriage enrichment or crisis intervention.

The program teaches skills that lead to happier, healthier marriages. The Third Option combines skill-building workshops with sharing from mentor couples and a support group atmosphere.

There is confidentiality and freedom to share or merely listen.

The program is designed to provide constructive ways to improve marital relationships.

Though not a Bible class, it is based on Biblical principles. It uses mentor couples, small group interaction, and fun exercises to teach content. The Third Option is a proven program initiated in Syracuse, NY and known internationally.

The program is based on the assumption that if one person in a relationship changes, it can (and will) change the relationship. Therefore, if only one person in the couple can attend, it is still beneficial.

Participants are encouraged to attend as many sessions of the 14-topic cycle as possible. However, drop-ins are welcome and couples may join at any time.

If free onsite childcare is needed, we do ask that participants register in advance. There is no charge for the course, as it is operated as a ministry of Resurrection Life Fellowship.
