We hope to challenge and encourage all couples in their marriages to bring faith to their home in a greater way. We also include food and fellowship in all our gatherings, so we hope you can join us!

A Lifelong Love

Day: Wednesday  Time of day: 7:00PM  Start Date: March 1, 2017
Location: E-102   City:    Leader: Shawn Yost   Leader Email: syost@firstfriends.org
Childcare: Yes

Gary Thomas believes couples often settle for too little when it comes to marriage. We fail to understand how deeply God cares about our spouse. We diminish our need to not only understand what biblical love really is, but also to become a people who excel at it. We let ourselves drift apart instead of making the daily choices to grow closer together. Whether your marriage needs a complete makeover, a touch up, or just a new purpose, A Lifelong Love promises to set your relationship on an entirely new dimension. This study will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment.

Couples of Promise

Day: Sunday  Time of day: 9:30AM  Start Date: Ongoing
Location: L-41   City:    Leader: Jeff & Julia Schumacher   Leader Email:
Childcare: Yes

This winter beginning January 15 we will study I Am N by Voice of the Martyrs. In this powerful video series we will be taken into true stories of Christians around the world that face persecution for their faith and examine how we respond to that spiritually and practically. This study will be followed by John Piper’s six-week video study God Is the Gospel. The Bible tells us the gospel is good news not because of its many peripheral blessings, but because it brings us to God and to utter delight in him. Join us as we dynamically explore the ultimate good of the good news.
