All Church

The Crazy Cycle - starts Tuesday, October 16

We know that divorce is a major issue in our culture today, both inside and outside the church. Despite our best attempts at love, couples find themselves paralyzed by dysfunction and mired in conflict. Why do we face so many seemingly insurmountable problems today? Is there hope for the struggle? What are we missing?

In this four-part series, Pastors Jason and Jamie Fuller will shed light on Dr. Emerson Eggerichs indispensable element of a healthy marriage — respect. Combining biblical instruction with scientific expertise, Emerson provides insight into the unique ways in which God has designed both men and women and how they can rightly embrace their differences in marriage. Rather than becoming another statistic, struggling marriages can break their Crazy Cycle and become thriving marriages by living in accordance with God's good design.

Join us starting Tuesday, October 16th @ 6:30pm at church. This will be a four-week class/group. Sign up HERE if you are interested.
