We’re Here to Help!

To live a haphazard life of chance and indecision is to choose powerlessness and to give control of our behavior and decisions to others, thereby forfeiting the power and freedom that God’s grace, truth, and forgiveness grants us! New Beginnings believes that the church should serve a function similar to that of a hospital, moving alongside others, down the road to a healthier life.  Many of us come from a painful past that has a firm grip on our present.  These unhealthy roots spring up in our marriages, families and other relationships along our path in life.  I want to encourage all of you. There is good news? We don’t have to face the future alone and we can change the way we do things. We have a wide variety of groups and classes to help you grow relationships God’s way.  We hope to assist you in your move toward a healthier tomorrow.

Boundaries in Marriage  BOUNDARIES IN MARRIAGE  Learn when to say yes and when to say no–to your spouse and to others–to make the most of your marriage. Only when a husband and wife know and respect each other’s needs, choices, and freedom can they give themselves freely and lovingly to one another. Boundaries are the “property lines” that define and protect husbands and wives as individuals. Once they are in place, a good marriage can become better, and a less-than-satisfying one can even be saved. This class will show couples how to apply the 10 laws of boundaries that can make a real difference in relationships. (Prerequisite class: MARRIAGE BY DESIGN)

Cost: $40.00/couple (resources included)     Thursday Nights 7:00p-8:45pm  (8/2-10/18)
