Beginning Sunday, June 25 and continuing through Sunday, September 8, registration will be ongoing. On June 25, and periodically every few weeks as the retreat approaches, there will be a registration table in the sanctuary lobby before and after our regular Sunday worship service. On the weeks the table is not set up, you can still get a form from the church office or directly from Tracy Hanzelik (423-280-5177), or you may contact Tracy if you have questions or need more information..

New Marriage Bible Study - Mondays
There will be a new Marriage Bible study beginning  July 17 on Monday nights at the home of Todd & Jessi Oates. The study will run approximately 6-8 weeks and will be using the "Building A Marriage That Really Works" bible study, published by Precept Ministries.

The synopsis from the publisher's website describes the study as follows:

Marriage begins with visions of eternal love, hope, and happiness. Yet, even among Christians, hope too quickly fades. The happiness dims. And love seems too hard to sustain.

It doesn't have to be that way. God designed marriage to be a satisfying, fulfilling relationship, and He created men and women so that they-together, and as one flesh-could reflect His love for the world. Marriage, when lived out as God intended, makes us complete, it brings us joy, and gives our lives fresh meaning.

In this study, you'll examine God's design for marriage, and you'll learn, from the Designer's perspective, what it means to be a godly husband or wife. You'll discover biblical wisdom for pursuing harmony in difficult areas such as finances, communication, and respect for each other's roles. Most important, you'll learn the principles you need to build a love that lasts.

If you are interested in participating in the study, please let Jessi Oates know, or if you have any questions or need more information, please also contact Jessi at 423-400-9925.
