Connected: Emotionally – Focused Couples
Too often, the close connection God wants married couples to enjoy can become strained or even broken. Couples can attempt to repair the damage by applying wise principles to their marriage, but no advice or newfound skills will make a difference unless they feel emotionally safe, close, cherished, and respected together. It’s that strong emotional connection that truly motivates spouses to build a healthy marriage.

9:00 and 10:30 am – LC 101
We’ll use Jesus’ own model for disciple-making:
1. Jesus invited people to come and see
2. Jesus encouraged some to “follow me”
3. Jesus challenged his followers to become fishers of men
4. Jesus promoted multiplication by telling them to “go and bear fruit.”
