If you’re feeling stressed this season then the New Life Community Baptist Church has an event sure to pep up your holiday step.

Not to mention it might give you a few helpful hints about how to rein in your dear partner.

New Life is hosting a couple’s comedy night with comedian Steve Geyer.

“He’s going to talk about relationships, couples and add some comedy to it. And offer couples ways to make their relationship better,” Tracy Bazinet, one of the key organizers, said.

“It’s always important to work on your marriage and to always take time out as couples to rejuvenate so you’re better parents.”

To spread good cheer and will, the hilarious Couples Night Out event has teamed up with World Vision. Comedy enthusiasts will also have a chance to sponsor a World Vision child from Bolivia.

The New Life Community Baptist Church Youth Group is going on a mission’s trip to Bolivia next year and so the opportunity to lay ground work in Bolivia seemed like a perfect fit.

“World Vision is sponsoring this event. There will be a table for children who are from Bolivia and that’s the idea of the night because our youth group is going to Bolivia,” Bazinet said. “We are fortunate to have them come.”

Bazinet hopes this event will make the holiday season a little less stressful for couples.

“It is just to take time out to laugh and be together. It will be a great night out with dessert and laughter,” she said.
