Marriage & Family Ministries
ENRICH - Building Up Strong Marriages and Parents
So you have been married for a while and have experienced some of the "seasons" of married life; the "Honeymoon is over season", "Pregnancy, or Not." "Kids and Parenting", "School Daze!" "The Teen years"' "Empty Nest" and throughout this marital journey most of us have experienced incredible highs, and very low, lows. It is so important to realize that in the midst of all these seasons a healthy marriage doesn't just happen. It takes committed teamwork by both spouses. That's where we as a marriage team would like to help.
We offer a variety of marriage classes, marriage retreats, parenting classes and resources, to help enrich and deepen your marital intimacy throughout the seasons of life.
February 20th - April 24th:
Wednesdays at 7:00 pm | Choir Room
What does God think about attitudes? This study uses examples from the Israelites' journey out of Egypt to show how attitudes can affect whether someone stays in the wilderness or enjoys the blessings of the Promised Land.
In this study, James MacDonald teaches how you can lead others (and even yourself) out of attitudes God hates and into those He honors, from:
- complaining to thankfulness
- critical to love
- coveting to contentment
- doubting to full of faith
Come grow in your faith as you grow in your relationships through this Equipping Series. Cost is $16 for book & materials (1 book per couple).
