re|engage is a marriage enrichment small group 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 as a couple.
The fall session is currently at capacity. If you’d like to be added to our wait list, please fill out the form below.
When and where does re|engage meet?
We meet on Tuesday nights during each semester at 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the West End Building (Student building located by Stewart Entrance). The next semester starts August 31, 2021.
What does a typical night at re|engage look like?
The format of the night is as follows:
- 7:00 p.m. – 7:20 p.m. – Large Group Time (testimony/teaching)
- 7:20 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. – Small Group Time
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 a Biblically-based curriculum, is where God works to grow and resurrect marriages.
Do you provide child care?
At this time we do not provide childcare at the church.
What commitment do I have to make?
This is a 16-week commitment but a commitment that is worth making every week! We ask that you attend each week with your spouse (emergencies or planned vacation as exceptions).
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.
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 a short time. 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.
We are thinking about getting married (or are engaged). Is this ministry for us?
We suggest you elect to focus on marriage preparation through a pre-marital class. If you would like more information on the pre-marital class at Palm Valley Church, please contact us at email@example.com
