Life Group Leader Basic Training

Small Group Leaders!

• ALREADY A LEADER? If you’re already a small group leader, this is a good refresher course.

• NEW LEADER? If you’re already planning or hoping to start a new group, you’ll definitely want to attend.

• JUST WANT TO KNOW MORE? If you think you might be interested in small group leadership, why not attend the training and decide if you’d like to go further? A teaching gift is not required, but a willingness to get Christians together to help each other grow in Christ. Attendance does not mean you are committing.

Interested in starting a Life Group? Our next four-week Life Group Leader Basic Training will be offered for four Sundays starting February 16, 23, March 1 & 8 at 8-9:15 A.M. and repeated at 9:30-10:45 A.M. in the GYM (Burlington Campus).  To register or for more information click here

dynamic marriage class

Dynamic Marriage is a 9 week course that will help you discover how your marriage can thrive and be more fulfilling than you ever thought possible. Based on the “Love Bank” model from the book, His Needs, Her Needs by Dr. Willard Harley, you’ll learn how communication and behavior styles affect the way you and your spouse act and react to each other.

Through an interactive learning process, you’ll identify behaviors that may be damaging your marriage, develop healthy ways to deal with marital conflict and take concrete steps to meet each other’s needs better than you ever have before.

Week after week, you’ll uncover new perspectives about yourself and your spouse, and your newly acquired relationship skills will become a natural part of your daily life together. By the end of the course you and your spouse will have created a more fulfilling way of living, loving and understanding each other. You now have your own Dynamic Marriage!

Designed for up to 12 couples, Dynamic Marriage integrates 4 powerful learning techniques to transform a good marriage into a great marriage.

The first class will start in the fall of 2020. To register or for more info contact Troy at 513.212.0125 or troy18j@yahoo.com. Childcare provided.
