One Thing(s) Marriage Study:

Here’s a brief introduction from the study host (writer) Ted Lowe:
Hi, my name is Ted Lowe, speaker, author, and founder of MarriedPeople.org. I’ve been working with married couples for a long time. And over the years, I have had amazing opportunities to talk with some of the leading marriage gurus in the country. And every time I do, I think, “I wish other married people could hear this.” That’s why I’m going on a little tour. I want you to meet these people too. And while these experts know a lot about marriage, I ask them, “If you could only tell married couples one thing, what would it be?”
This study is all about the One Thing(s) they shared.
Sounds good, right??  This study covers the topics of love, kindness, finances, dependence, priorities and more!  
Now that you know a little bit about the study, let me share a few specifics concerning meeting times, groups, etc:
*Participants study books cost $10/each. 
*Group meetings are planning to start the week of April 11th.  
*This study will only last four weeks.  Since this is a short study, we’re going to ask that you attend each session.  You’ll be happy you did!
It’s so important to keep growing in your faith!  Your marriage is worth it!

re|engage - Frequently Asked Questions

 Will I be asked a lot of personal questions at re|engage?

There is no personal sharing required during the large group meeting. Though we encourage you to remain active in group discussion, any personal sharing during the small group meetings is voluntary.

How do I know that what I share at re|engage will be kept confidential? Will it be a safe place to share?

We believe that scripture calls us to refrain from gossip and we ask all participants and facilitators to adhere to the guidelines that what is discussed in the group stays in the group.  re|engage facilitators are encouraged to operate under the direction of God’s Word in handling the information shared in the group.  In order to provide a safe environment, the facilitators have committed to not share information about others outside the group except in the event of the threat of physical, emotional or spiritual injury, then to be dealt with under the guidance of re|engage staff.    

Can I be honest with people about what is going on in our marriage?

Our prayer is that you will feel safe to share within your small group. We find that the more authentic and transparent couples can be with others, the more they find hope and healing within their marriage.

Is re|engage marriage counseling?

re|engage is not marriage counseling and the leaders are facilitators, not counselors. They are also growing in their own marriages. Everyone in the group is on the journey to oneness in marriage. We believe that openness and honesty in a small group setting, using Biblically-based curriculum, is where God works to grow and resurrect marriages.

Do you provide child care?

That is a tough situation due to Covid and varies with each group. 

How much time each week outside of the meeting is required to be part of re|engage?

Completion of the curriculum will take approximately 15-20 minutes each week.  The time required will vary, but it is designed for minimal time commitment.

What commitment do I have to make?

Once you join a group, working through the re|engage curriculum will require a commitment.  This is the time in which the group is working through the curriculum together. 

I don’t know if I’ll have a marriage by the end of the month. Is re|engage a good place for us?

Absolutely! There are many couples who have attended, or are attending, who are separated or divorced. While the outcome is based on the work each individual is willing to do to save their marriage, the platform provides a safe place to focus on what a healthy marriage should look like, and it provides some tools to help grow toward this goal.

We don’t like spending time with each other anymore. Will we have to interact together?

While you will be in a small group together, each of you will be sharing about what you learn personally each week. However, there are some exercises that may require you to interact with each other throughout the process.

I have no hope anymore. Is this a place where we can find hope?

Our prayer is that you will find hope that can come through allowing God to do a mighty work within your marriage.

My marriage is doing well. Can we benefit by attending re|engage?

Whether your marriage needs to be reignited, or is in need of a complete resurrection, re|engage is a safe place for couples to reconnect. 

We have only been married for 6 months. Can we still come?

Absolutely!  In fact, participating in re|engage at this stage in your marriage is a great idea!  The program will provide a strong foundation for your marriage.
