What is Love and Respect? We believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts when feeling disrespected and a wife reacts when feeling unloved. We asked 7,000 people this question: when you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected? 83% of the men said “disrespected.” 72% of the women said, “unloved.” Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue! This 6-week in-depth study is not just for the married, but for those who are divorced, separated, dating and single as well. Men and women will learn how to resolve conflict, dealing with the negative reactions (the crazy cycle). They will also learn how to motivate each other by meeting each other’s need (the energizing cycle). Even those who feel hopeless in their relationships will gain understanding on how to handle an indifferent or unresponsive partner (the rewarded cycle). Each cycle centers on two concepts: love and respect. These two words surface in social research and the bible (Ephesians 5:33) as the two key ingredients for a successful marriage. From our research, those attending the Love and Respect conference, watching the Love and Respect DVD in small groups, or reading the Love and Respect resources, are experiencing understanding, forgiveness, reconciliation, change, and hope. The small group is a slower, more in-depth study of the popular Love and Respect 2-day seminar. This 6 week study will run Friday nights beginning October 25th. There is a $10 workbook that accompanies the seminar. (Scholarships are...Read More »
We’ll take several shots of your entire family, then, together, we’ll choose your favorite for inclusion in our church directory. Your family will receive a FREE 8×10 of your favorite photo, too! Tips for taking a great Family Portrait: Coordinate, but don’t match. While you definitely don’t want the colors in the photo to clash, keep your photos interesting by letting everyone wear something different. Just make sure you don’t have too busy patterns/designs in the group! When in doubt, stick to solids in different shades of the same color. Be comfortable. If you’re uncomfortable, it will show in your picture. Choose an outfit that you’re confident in and that’s comfortable for you to wear. Be casual. Sometimes, portraits can be stressful, but if you set out to have a good time, not only will you get a great photo, you’ll have an awesome time during your session. Be willing to cut loose. Remember, the camera captures more than you think it does, so if you’re stiff and stressed, you’ll see that in the final product. Besides, the best family portraits are the ones that show your family’s personality. So cut loose, have fun, and be willing to be a little silly. Trust us, the final product will be great! Special note for families with young children: Sometimes The Littles don’t cooperate. It’s okay! Having your picture taken can be confusing and a little scary for the little guys. Make sure that Mom and Dad and any bigger kids keep the pose and stay smiling, and let the photographer worry about getting the right shot of Mr. Fussy. Book Your Appointment Online!...Read More »

A Transformative Marriage Course Are you and your spouse working with each other or against each other? Are you winning the game of life together or are you on opposite teams struggling to get through another day? 1 Corinthians 1:10 “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” Think of your marriage as a football team. God’s intention for your marriage is that you’re on the same team, making the same plays, working on game plans that ultimately score you both a goal, and building a winning team. In football, there’s a coach. The coach gives the plays, encourages his players, and refocuses his team in order to win the game. That’s exactly who God is in your marriage. Focusing on God and His desire for your marriage gives you the best playbook for your marriage, and is the key to having a better relationship with God and your spouse. This course will give you the tools you need to set healthy patterns in your life that will positively affect your relationships with your spouse and your children. Isn’t it time to change? To have the type of marriage that God intended us to have? Let’s listen to our Coach’s directions and advice. Let’s have “A Spirit-Field Marriage”. Start date: March 15, 2013 Cost: $99/couple * This 9 week class will be held on Fridays from 7:00 pm -9:30 pm. ** ALL participants will be required to complete homework and share openly during classes. To sign up, email Scot and Tonya...Read More »

The Wife of Bath’s Tale This evening’s story is loosely adapted from Geoffrey Chaucer’s 12th century classic, “The Wife of Bath’s Tale,” contained in the larger work, The Canterbury Tales. Chaucer compiled the tales told by the faithful pilgrims each evening as they gathered around the warm fire on their way to the church at Canterbury. A most outstanding tale was told by a woman who hailed from the town of Bath. Having had five husbands, she glibly called herself the “Wife of Bath.” Considering herself an authority on men and women, the Wife of Bath relates a desperate tale of a knight in King Arthur’s court who betrays a maiden. In lieu of removing his head for his crime against womanhood, the Queen gives him an impossible task: discover what it is that women want most, and bring the answer to the ladies of the court. If all the ladies in the court agree, the knight lives, but if only one of the fairer sex disagrees with the knight’s answer, “Off with his head!” What adventure awaits our knight this night? Will he find an answer with which all women agree? Eat up, dear guests, relax and see! A 3-Course Dinner is included with your ticket. [display_single_event...Read More »
