WHAT ELSE COUPLES ARE SAYING...
“With God’s help, we now have a more welcoming and safer environment for honest and open communication.”
“We argue less. We can now resolve issues with humility and forgiveness.”
“We’re handling our stresses much better. We’re modeling good behavior for our kids.”
We will meet in person at Center Pointe Christian Church every Wednesday from 6:30-8:30pm beginning January 11, 2023. Our address is 5962 Hamilton Mason Rd, Liberty Township, OH 45011.
When and where will we meet?
The Re-Engage term lasts 17 weeks, covering an extensive curriculum full of biblically-based approaches to develop a healthy marriage.
Each week, couples meet in a large group to listen to a teaching or couple’s testimony, then move into assigned small groups for deeper discussion. Couples will stay with the same group throughout the Re-Engage experience. Between meetings, each person spends time reading a session introduction, answering questions, and discussing insights with their spouse. This preparation time prior to meetings can be 30 to 90 minutes.
How Long is Re-Engage? How Does it Work?
There is only so much you can work on over a weekend or even a six-week study. Re-Engage is an immersive 17-week experience where spouses progressively work on themselves first and then their relationship to improve how they function as a couple. The cumulative impact is amazing.
How is Re-Engage different from other marriage programs?
Depending on the couples that register, we may be able to group them by life stage. No matter the group makeup, all couples will benefit by engaging in supportive dialogue and learning through practice. You will have a leader couple who has been through the Re-Engage journey and will walk with you as you experience Re-Engage together.
How are the Small Groups Formed?
Not at all. While it does help for couples to be transparent about their challenges, neither the group nor the leaders try to counsel or “fix” them. The advantage of a group setting is hearing common problems and learning how couples are working through them.
Is this group therapy?
Yes, we offer childcare for kids from 8 weeks to 5th grade for those who register. Please indicate names, ages, and pertinent information on your registration form. If you have an older teen (16+) who loves kids and wants to earn extra money for childcare, we’ll be happy to take them through our screening process.
Is Childcare Available?
The one-time payment of $100 per couple helps cover the cost of materials and administration to put Re-Engage on during the 17 weeks. You and your spouse will each receive a Re-Engage workbook and a t-shirt at the end of the program. Snacks, childcare and meals for leaders are also provided. We never want the cost to be a prohibiting factor to you from investing in your marriage, so if you cannot afford that right now, please just let us know. Some couples offer to help sponsor other couples. Most couples would agree that $100 is a minimal investment in the health of their marriage.
How Much Does Re-Engage Cost?
Both the husband and the wife must be committed to attending the sessions consistently and doing the work. We understand that things come up. You should talk with your small group leader if your need to miss a session.
Do We Need to Attend all Sessions?
If you’re currently in another group, you may be wondering whether you can add another nightly commitment to your schedule. That’s completely up to you. Some couples will want to take a hiatus from their community group so they can just focus on their Re-Engage experience; then they will rejoin their group afterward. If you think you can do both, great. We encourage you to pray through your decision.
Do I need to leave my Community Group?
Congratulations! You’ve taken an important step toward a long-term investment in your marriage. You and your spouse will work and learn together to restore closeness and oneness as you walk through this journey. Before Re-Engage starts, take this time to exercise grace and gratitude toward your spouse. Also, admit that you have some things to work on. If you’re not able to do that work yet, that’s okay. Hang in there and just feel good that you’ve made a good choice just by registering. We’ll see you soon.
Okay, I’m signed up. Now what?
