Grace for Marriage: Gospel Vision to Keep Saying “I Do”
Lewis Smeades said,
“Some people ask who they are and expect visions of their ideal self to tell them. But our visions can only tell us what we want to be, not what we are.”*
Join us on Friday evening, February 20 and Saturday morning, February 21, as we pursue grace together for marriage. Whether we are newlyweds, or celebrating 40 years of marriage, we all need grace to keep saying “I do”, to keep moving toward the vision for marriage we see in Scripture. Marriage is a reflection of Jesus and His love for the Church. Unlike any other relationship, marriage is uniquely designed to display to one another and the world the love of God. Join us to be encouraged, strengthened and refreshed in a sustaining vision for truly saying “I Do” each and every day!
Following the relational development in Song of Solomon our three sessions will focus on:
- Cultivating our Marriage: they don’t flourish without attention!
- Conflict in Marriage: it’s going to happen, so how can we grow from it?
- Courtship after “I Do”: Pursuing one another physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Each session will be taught by our Lead Pastor, Aron Osborne, with table discussion as a part of each session. Invite a couple that you know!
Couples, in 300 words or less, tell us about your Most Creative Date, submit to Lisa Chin by February 18!
