FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is re|engage marriage ministry?

Large Group is time of inspiration and encouragement where leaders share how God has brought healing and strength to their marriages. Small Groups create an environment for couples to build relationships with other couples while working on their own personal and relational growth. re|engage examines God’s design for marriage and applies principles from the Bible to guide couples towards growth in their relationship with each other.

Who should join re|engage?

Marriages in any condition can benefit, whether you are struggling to get along, your marriage is broken, or you simply want to grow closer together as a couple.

When will re|engage begin?

At LifePark, re|engage will begin on September 7 and run until December 14.

re|enngage will meet at the Church at LifePark. A specific location within the building will be determined soon.

How long will re|engage last?

re|enngage will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:00 p.m.

When can I register for re|engage?

You will be able to register for re|engage beginning July until September 1. After September, there will be a waitlist.

Will there be childcare?

Yes, but we would ask for you to please register so we can plan accordingly.

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 LifePark 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 Biblically-based curriculum, is where God works to grow and resurrect marriages.

How much time each week outside of the meeting is required to be part of re|engage?

Completion of the curriculum will take approximately 30 minutes each week. The time required will vary, but it is designed for minimal time commitment.

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.

We don’t like spending time with each other anymore. Will we have to interact together?

While you will be in a small group together, each of you will be sharing about what you learn personally each week. However, there are some exercises that may require you to interact with each other throughout the process.

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 6 months. 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. Please contact Pastor Rick at rick.higgins@lifeparkmp.org
