re | Engage
re | engage is back on Wednesday nights, from August 23-November 15, 2023! We will meet from 6:15–7:45 pm. The ultimate goal of re|engage is to assist couples on the journey of becoming better disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe as our hearts align with God's plan and desire for our lives, all relationships (including our marriages) will strengthen. This 12-week session combines biblical insight on marital topics along with a small group discussion opportunity. We have partnered with Watermark Church (Dallas, TX) to utilize their marriage enrichment program here at Hope. Just like a marriage, re|engage is a commitment! If you are looking for more from your marriage, this is the place to begin!
This program is only $30 + fees per couple (including materials)
Children's activities will be available (infants–5th graders) at no extra cost.

Parenting is not an easy task; it’s a journey as much about us as it is about our children. We are currently putting together options to facilitate groups of shared personal experiences combined with tools to help us learn to bravely parent from a source of God’s truth rather than the world’s voice of management, comparison, judgment and control.
