We are now taking sign-ups for our upcoming Couples’ Study that begins on Friday, January 17th. We will be going through Marriage Forecasting: Changing the Climate of Your Relationship One Conversation at a Time by Tim Muehlhoff. Our Bible study groups meet the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month from January 17th through May 16th.
Cost is $18 per couple. Childcare is available up to 12 years old. Sign-ups end on Sunday, January 5th. You may sign up at the Gazebo or online. This is a non-refundable event.
What’s the forecast for your marriage? Marriages are as variable as the weather, and every marriage has a climate. Some are chilly and lack intimacy. Others are stormy and filled with conflict. But while the weather outdoors is beyond our control, the communication climates within our homes can be changed–for the better.
Communication specialist, Tim Muehlhoff, offers simple strategies for improving the climate of a marriage. Our individual words and actions always take place within an overall atmosphere of expectations. Without a healthy climate of trust, we are prone to miscommunication and misunderstanding. Muehlhoff shows how to take an accurate climate reading of a relationship and explains what causes climates of poor communication. With current research on marital communication, listening skills, empathy and conflict resolution, provides practical ways for couples to rebuild a warm relational climate.
Don’t just talk about the weather. Break the cold front, clear the fog, and change the extended outlook for your marriage.

Couples’ Retreat: Once a year in the summer, we get away for a weekend at a resort with our spouses. We enjoy teachings from our own Pastor David & various guest pastors. Couples attend workshops on topics such as communication, devotions, intimacy, finances, raising children and grandparenting.
Couples’ Conferences: We occasionally host a conference here at our fellowship for couples. In 2010, we had “Love and Respect” Conference with Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. This was a two-day conference focusing on communication between a husband and his wife.
