Food and Fun

This Sunday, May 15th, following worship service, we will gather together for a potluck lunch and then enjoy some “down-time” and play games with family and friends. Bring a dish or two to share and games that you enjoy playing with a group.

Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage

Why a “laughter approach? For one simple reason; to overcome the male objection to a seminar. Let’s be honest, a marriage seminar isn’t the first thing a guy thinks of when he thinks of a “fun way to spend the weekend.” We get that… Familiar with the fact that women are usually more open to discussing marital problems than their spouses, Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage is designed with an element of humor that appeals to couples, but is especially well-received by men.                                                                                                                                   Mark Gungor

There are three key parts to your Grief Share experience:

  • Video seminar (Encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts)
  • Support group (Small group discussion about the weekly video content)
  • Workbook (Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics)
