How’s Your Marriage?
In The Ring
Any longstanding marriage has withstood some disagreements, disappointments, and discouragements. The Bible says marriage is a cornerstone of the family, but sometimes it feels more like a battlefield than a place of refuge. This February, we’re putting on our gloves and stepping IN THE RING to discover what it takes to fight for a healthier, happier marriage. Whether you are single, married, or plan to marry one day, this new series will give you the tools you need to view relationships from God’s perspective.
WEEK 1 (Feb 3rd): FIGHTING EXPECTATIONS
When we step into the ring of marriage we bring with us the weight of our expectations – What life is “supposed” to look like, our hopes, and our dreams. In and of themselves, these desires are okay, but what happens when our unspoken expectations go unfulfilled? Before you throw in the towel, let’s take a moment to think about the other person in the ring. This week, we will be FIGHTING EXPECTATIONS!
WEEK 2 (Feb 10th): FIGHTING TO SEE THINGS THROUGH HER EYES
Men, just when you thought you knew everything about your wife there was to know… you find out there is so much more to learn. In our lives together, there is endless value in understanding what is important to the other person In the Ring. Join us this week as we learn more about the intricacies of women, and discover how to strengthen our marriages by fighting to see things through her eyes.
WEEK 3 (Feb 17th): FIGHTING TO SEE THINGS THROUGH HIS EYES
Recently, my daughter came home from school and said to me, “Daddy, boys are so different.” Indeed, they are! My girls are beginning to discover that while the other person in the ring also bears the image of God, it is expressed in different ways. Men look different, they feel different, they smell different, and they process differently. Join us this week as we learn how to strengthen our marriages by fighting to see things through his eyes.

What is the secret to their longevity as husband and wife? Come find out this Sunday as another set of Rosenberry’s take the stage to share their marriage testimony with us.
