COUPLE'S CLASS"Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." Philippians 4:8
“The Journey” is a six week class designed to help couples understand and learn new ways of dealing with conflict in relationships. The material presented is applicable to any relationship, but specifically targets romantic relationships.
This couple’s class meets on Sunday evenings from 5pm-7:30pm. For more info about the next class please Contact Us. To register for the next Journey Class submit your Couple’s Class Registration Form now! (This class is limited to 8 couples.)
The class uses the Bible’s exodus story as its underlying theme. Just as the Israelites were led from bondage in Egypt to a new life in the Promised Land, “The Journey” leads couples from the land of conflict to the land of meeting each-other’s relational needs.
This interactive six week class challenges couples to transform every aspect of their relationship. Not simply a crisis intervention, this class is for any married, engaged, or dating couple that wants to enhance their relationship. It will benefit couples that have been together for 40 days or 40 years. It doesn’t matter if you feel totally connected to one another or you’ve realized you’ve grown apart. No matter where you are at, your relationship will benefit from greater understanding and additional “tools.”

How are relationship supposed to work? How does our family of origin and our past experience in relationship influence the way we handle conflict?

Week 6 (Life in the Promised Land): Meeting Each-Other’s Relational Needs
