Up to 20-Week Marriage Program

Starting February 2, 2018, and going for 15-20 consecutive weeks, we will be offering a course on marriage. Those who are married, hope to be married, struggling, or doing just fine, are encouraged to come.

  • • The program will run from 7:30 - 8:30 pm every Friday

  • • We will be meeting at Living Water Community Church

  • • We are offering this course at no cost. Childcare will also be provided. (An offering will be taken to thank those providing childcare.)

  • • We will be going through: What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage. We will be supplementing that with material from the book Marriage God's Way

It won’t take long for you to be disappointed in marriage. It won’t take long for your dreams to be dashed. The reality is that you can’t escape the brokenness of this world. You won’t be able to avoid the sin of your spouse.

The Bible teaches that we all bring something destructive into our relationships – sin. But as Paul David Tripp explains, we buy into the delusion that our biggest problem is outside of us. We blame our spouse. We blame our circumstances. We rarely take seriously the nature of our own sin.

Unlike other marriage books that only diagnose horizontal problems, What Did You Expect? fights a much deeper war over the worship of our heart. It’s only when we worship God as Creator, Sovereign and Savior that we will ever love as we should.

What Did You Expect? challenges you to look into the mirror of God’s Word and see yourself with clarity. Maybe it’s you. Maybe you love yourself more than your spouse. Maybe you love your little kingdom more than God’s big Kingdom. When you reach that level of honesty, you’re at the edge of real good things for your marriage.

Start working on a marriage of unity, understanding, and love.

We will be meeting at Living Water Community Church in Tracy. Directions can be found here and more about the marriage course can be found below. The book "What did you expect?" will be available for purchase but will not be necessary in order to participate. The Marriage God's Way book and workbook will be available as well.
