Re|Engage is a marriage enrichment program. Marriages in any condition can benefit, whether you are struggling to get along, your marriage is broken, or you simply want to grow closer together as a couple. This 16-week program, beginning in January, examines God's design for marriage and applies principles from the Bible to guide couples towards growth in their relationship with each other.
There are two components to Re|Engage: large group and small group participation. Each evening begins in a large group setting, during which time you'll hear couples publicly share their marriage story, and class leaders teaching principles for marriage growth. This typically lasts anywhere from 30-45 minutes.
During the second portion of the class, couples move into small groups depending on which stage of the Re|Engage process they are in. There are three stages: Newcomers, Open Group, and Closed Group.
The Newcomers small group is for first-time attendees to Re|Engage. In the Newcomers group, your leaders will share some of their marriage story, explain the Re|Engage process, and discuss your next steps. This is a safe environment for you to come and hear what Re|Engage is all about. No one will ask you to share.
The Open Group small group is for couples who have attended Newcomers and are not yet in a Closed Group. Open Groups are a great place to begin working on your marriage. Each week will feature group discussion on different marriage topics. At this time, you'll have the opportunity to begin sharing some of your story at your own pace. You will also begin learning the value and group rules for participating in small groups.
The Closed Group small group consists of 4-5 participating couples who will walk through the 16-lesson Re|Engage curriculum together. Closed Groups are formed when there are enough couples ready to join a Closed Group, and a facilitator couple is available. You will not be placed in a Closed Group until you have indicated that you are ready. Once formed, no new couples are added to the Closed Group. This group generally meets from 75-90 minutes.
Memorial Park's Marriage Ministry also organizes couples events to help couples reconnect, reignite, and ressurect their marriage. Re|Engage is offered as part of Memorial Park's NEWLIFE Class selections. For more information or to register, visit our NEWLIFE Classes page
