Saturday Program & Keynote Lesson – Noon-1:30
Jay & Carol Kelly
“Living Love Deliberately”
Each day is a series of choices. Together we will discuss what it can mean to be a blessing to our spouse moment by moment, day by day, and year by year. We will discuss broad strokes and practical tools that will help each couple build a marriage more filled with blessings and joy.
Afternoon Class A – 2:00-3:30
Alex & Danielle Whitaker with Geoff & Robin Fawcett
“The Blessings of an Intimate Marriage”
Talking through a narrative of our own lives and struggles, we will discuss intimacy honestly and openly with the group. We will focus on how to get closer to your spouse and build a bond that will unite you as best friends, learning to be honest, speaking up about problems, and seeing the blessings of marriage as God intended. We will explore how to overcome the common stumbling blocks to intimacy and why you can’t fix intimacy problems in the bedroom. Helping couples learn to support each other, be honest with each other about their physical needs and fight for every good thing in a Godly marriage.
Afteroon Class B – 2:00-3:30
Scott & Lynne Green
“Bonding Through Vulnerable Communication”
We all long to feel close and secure in our marriages. Yet spiritual and circumstantial challenges can often pull us apart, robbing us of God’s first intentions for relationship–to make sure we are not alone. When closeness wanes, we need vulnerable communication to repair and rekindle our marital bond. In this class we will learn about, experience, and practice the kind of vulnerable communication needed to help two walk as one.
Sunday Morning Worship Service – 11:00-12:30
Daren & Karla Overstreet
“The Blessing of Marriage”
At our Sunday service, we will discuss the purpose of marriage. God set us in a relationship of love for companionship, partnership, and most importantly, to display His glory to a world woefully confused about marriage. As we learn to appreciate God’s love in our own life, we can model it within the partnership of marriage, showing the world something it so desperately needs.
