This month's discussion topic: Achieving and Intentional Marriage
Children, Family and Healing Ministries is pleased to announce 10 Great Dates to Revitalize Your Marriage. 10 Great Dates is a book and video course by David and Claudia Arp which helps to spark romance, enhance communication and builds stronger marriages. Each Date Night will include a brief word of encouragement, and a short video that sets the stage for discussion, couples are then sent out for their own private date. Childcare will be available by reservation for children up to age 10. Childcare begins at 4:45 and ends at 8:00pm.
The biblical concept of marriage involves the oneness between a husband and wife that reflects the oneness of Christ with His church. We encourage participation of all married couples of all ages and stages: from newlyweds, couples knee deep in parenting to empty nesters to participate. Each stage of marriage brings its own joys and challenges.
Dates will be held on the third Saturday of the month through June, 2018. Topics do not build on each other, therefore you do not need to attend each one: however, there is great benefit to participating regularly. Dates will begin at 5:00pm in the Chapel at the Pender Rd. office and begin with a word of encouragement and a 15 minute video before you leave on your personal date. There will be a monthly drawing for a restaurant coupon, entertainment coupon, or marriage resource book.
The cost of participation is $25.00 per couple for all Ten Dates and the book. We will provide the book to you on your first date. Please do not let the cost prohibit your participation, scholarships are available. Advance registration is required. Please register by one week before your first date so that we can plan for enough materials and adequate childcare. Please register below. The fee is payable online.
Childcare will be available for kids 10 and under and the fee is a donation. Pre-registration is necessary and then again each month in advance. Initial registration for childcare is here. Date Night childcare will open at 4:45pm and you will pick up your child at 8:00pm.
Childcare will be provided by well-trained teenagers and they will be overseen by Abigail Klein our nursery/childcare coordinator. The money donated to the childcare will go towards the Apostles teens’ mission trips in 2018.
