Couple’s Club

The Couples Club extends a warm welcome to couples of all ages to meet other couples, develop new friendships, and maintain relationships with old friends. The Couples Group meets monthly at the Church, in members’ homes, as well as in restaurants and theaters.  We normally meet on the first Friday of the month from October 2010 – June 2011. The Couples Club is for married couples (1 week married through 60+ years) who want to grow closer as a couple, closer to other couples, and closer to God through fellowship and study. The format is light and enjoyable for both men and women. We have lots of laughter and fun.  Couples are invited to bring finger food to share in light healthy refreshments with other couples.  This is a great night out, and we normally meet from 7:30 – 9:30 PM.

This year we are using a course entitled Couplehood as a spiritual path:  the Imago journey for Christian Couples.  This is based on Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt’s book, Getting the Love You Want:  A Guide for Couples.

May 6 – Celebrating the Passage with a special Dinner Out at groups’ choice of restaurant
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom
all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my
body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. ~ I Cor 13:1-3

June 3 – End of Season Celebration – Dinner in the home of one of the members
