On February 11 from 8:30-12:30 in the Fellowship Center (downstairs), we'll host a Marriage Workshop led by Dr. Terry & Sharon Hargrave called The Disciple Way: Marriage and Improving Relationships. Marriage and relationships can be tough, but God created this very context for us to learn about ourselves. The disciple’s way includes taking off old self behaviors, mindfully self-regulating to pursue loving, caring and yes—even holy objectives in our relationships with spouses, others and God. Come and learn how to not only become a better spouse and partner, but also a better disciple of Christ. For more information, contact Murray at email@example.com.
