Let’s get real. How would you really rate your marriage?
Re|engage offers hope to marriages by helping couples move toward oneness through stories of grace, teaching and small groups. Whether you would rate your marriage as a two or 10, whether you are in need of serious help or looking to strengthen from a good to great marriage, there is a place for you at re|engage.
Re|engage groups will go through a 14-week curriculum consisting of recorded teachings and testimonies, a workbook and at home discussions with your spouse. The workbook will be done on your own during the week and the teachings/testimonies will be LIVE via zoom on Sunday evenings at 5 p.m. The small groups will meet via Zoom once a week. The time for these meetings will be determined based on what works best for the couples in each group.
want to help OTHER couples?
No one has a perfect marriage, but we are always looking for mentor couples who love God and want to help others make much of Him with their relationship.
