Circles/Share Group Meetings

After attending a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend, all are welcome and encouraged to join a circle/share group.

Belonging to a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Community through circles/share groups is like having an extended family; people who genuinely care about you and are there to share your good times and walk with you during your troubled times.

A Worldwide Marriage Encounter Circle/Share Group is a group of couples that have experienced a Marriage Encounter Weekend. They meet regularly, a presentation is given followed by dialogue time and sharing.  The sharing is optional; no one is required to share.  The meeting usually include prayer, socializing and delicious pot luck food.  Feel free to contact a circle/share group leader in your area to get involved in their circle.

Two share circles/groups are currently active in the Oklahoma City area.  You are welcome to join any group that meets your needs and schedule.
One group meets on the second Saturday of each month, in a private home; the location varies. Please contact Briyan and Karen Berland at bkberland@gmail.com if you would like to attend or have questions. Babysitting services are not provided.
