Coming up in Married Life Ministry

Posted by Elizabeth Moore on

Can you believe that fall is just around the corner? Kids will be going back to school with either tears or cheers from their parents and school year routines will be up and running once more. Sherwood Oaks will kick off its fall programming on Wednesday, August 24 and Married Life Ministry has a full schedule of classes and events planned. Take a look at what we're offering this fall:

Safe House Study - If you are a parent to be, parent, or grandparent please join Brian and Jill Bailey beginning Sunday, September 11 for six weeks in the Fireside Room at 9:30am as we will take a deep dive into Dr. Joshua Straub's SAFE HOUSE material. We will explore how to practically create an emotionally safe home which is scientifically and Biblically linked to raising kids that live, love and lead well.

Couple Checkup - No one knows your relationship better than you. Take this opportunity to see where you stand as a couple right now, and learn how you can make your relationship even better.  You will each complete an on-line survey and the results will be complied to help you discover your strengths and areas for growth.  Contact Elizabeth Moore at to take the $35 assessment.  Class will be held in the Fireside Room at 9:30 from October 23 - November 20.

Early Married Life - Early married or recently engaged? Then we have a class just for you! Early Married Life centers around those just getting started on the journey of a lifetime.  God has a plan for your marriage, so let us help you develop that firm foundation.  Seventeen years of marriage and 4 kids later, we (Jeff and Erika) certainly don’t have all the answers, but do offer some time-honored principles in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.  We promise that if you don’t learn a single thing you will most certainly make connections with other Early Marrieds like you. We'll meet at 11:00am in room 363.

Big Night Out - Big Night Out is a night dedicated to married couples reconnecting with one another in a fun atmosphere. Our next Big Night Out will take place on Friday, September 30 from 6:30pm-8:30pm. Wear your flannel! We'll meet in the Fellowship Hall for this fall themed event. 

The Smart Stepfamily - This is a six week program specifically designed for married and soon-to-be remarried couples. We provide practical, realistic solutions to the spiritual and relational challenges that stepfamilies face. This class meets as needed. Interested? Contact Suzanne at .
