New Hope Community Church will be offering a 6-week series during the Sunday School hour (Sunday’s 11-11:50 AM) beginning January 29th.  We invite all marrieds to join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM (Pastor Dan Jelsma will be preaching messages that compliment the Sunday School class), then take part in the “Sacred Marriage” class at 11 AM.

Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. Yet, what if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? And, what if your relationship isn’t as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God? In this popular bestselling book, Gary Thomas uncovers how your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and each other. You will learn how to:

  • Turn marital struggles into spiritual and personal appreciation.
  • Love your spouse with a stronger sense of purpose.
  • Partner in the spiritual growth and character formation of your spouse
  • Transform a “tired” marriage into a relationship filled with awe and respect

Join us, Sunday mornings at NHCC for worship at 9:30 AM, then enhance your marriage by participating in the “Sacred Marriage” Sunday School class beginning January 29!  For more information, call 715-845-8541.
