Married

Married - Cherish - Myers

When: Wednesday, Evening    Where: (1300 block) Appalosa Court Tracy, CA 95376

Most married couples survive by gritting their teeth and holding on. However, as Gary Thomas reveals in this six-session video Bible study (guide sold separately), couples can not only survive but actually thrive in marriage when they learn how to cherish one another. This simple practice of cherishing—noticing, appreciating, honoring, and encouraging one another—can reverse old patterns of "going through the motions" and bring hope and life into every marriage. This group meets at the Myers' home in the Schulte/Tracy Blvd. area every Wednesday (please call Mark or Wende for address), and invites all couples to the exciting study of how God can work in and through your marriage.
