Requirements: Bible, "Love & Respect" by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
This group is for couples married 5 or less years, with or without children, and who desire to grow stronger in their faith journey, learn more about biblical intimacy, and develop skills for overcoming adversity in marriage. This Fall we will use Dr. Emerson Eggerichs Love & Respect. A wife has one driving need―to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need―to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy. Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.

Farr Out Marrieds

Day: Sunday
Time of Day: 09:00 AM
Start Date: 09/10/2017

Requirements: Bibe, Jonah study guide by Eric Mason
This Connect Group is for married couples with children from pre-school through elementary school. This Fall we will complete a verse-by-verse look at the book of Jonah using the Right Now Media curriculum by Eric Mason. The story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God's grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. This study offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to his mission. Can you relate?
