The marrieds of the G.O.D. community get together multiple times a year. Formally they have one retreat weekend per year, but also multiple marrieds events throughout the year; from times of dinner fellowship and biblical study and discussion, to informal outings designed to enhance their relationships within the marriage and the friendships they can share with other couples.
As our community has continued to grow over the years, so has the number of married couples. As healthy marriages are key to a healthy community, we find it imperative to help meet the needs of spouses--ensuring biblical accountability, shared experiences, and forums for voicing the trials and triumphs of marriage.
Designated groups of couples, diverse in their situation, but all sharing the passion for holiness in their marriage, get together routinely, but also break in to husband groups, and wives groups for more concentrated and specific care.
These gatherings revolve around texts from the word that speak into the lives of married believers. Longing for fidelity and sincerity in our relationships, we recognize no advice is better than that which comes from the Bible.
Once a year, our singles do us the great favor of watching all the kiddos so that us marrieds could get together to connect with God and one another through food, games, conversation, worship and prayer. It's a real good time. Seriously.
