Study Purpose:  To create a study/discussion experience of biblical principles among husband and wife couples as described in the books: The Resolution for Men & The Resolution for Women.  Ultimately I am hoping these couples will produce some couples willing to mentor pre-marriage counseling couples.
Study Scope:  
Time – Wednesday nights 6:30 -8:00 pm during the regular Wednesday night study at church.
Materials – Men purchase read, discuss and practice the biblical principles in the book, The Resolution for Men
Women purchase read, discuss and practice the biblical principle in the book, The Resolution for Women

  1. I know we missed the first night but would it be possible to start next week if there was room?

      You bet! This past Wednesday was the introduction to the series. Go here to get details: Technically everyone will be meeting as couples on their own this Wednesday. But, if you like I would be happy to meet with you and any other “late starters” to get you signed up and online for the series. It’s different but going to be a great process for us all! Let me know if you want to meet this Wednesday at 6:30 pm.
