A Marriage Study

Monday
6:30pm

Gary Thomas, best-selling author of Sacred Marriage, believes that one word can bring hope, light and life into any marriage: Cherish. Read More

“Most marriages survive by gritting teeth and holding on. But marriages can and will not only survive but thrive when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another”, Thomas says.

And in a world desperate for marriage redemption, the act of cherishing is needed now more than ever.

Thomas shows that although there are a countless number of marriages consisting of two people just going through the motions, there are real ways this pattern can be reversed: when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another in proven, loving, and everyday actions and words.

Through personal stories and real-world examples, Thomas proves what husbands and wives can begin doing today to turn their marriage around – even a marriage marred by neglect and disrespect.

So how do you cherish your spouse? Thomas will show you how going out of your way to notice them, appreciate them, honor them, encourage them, and hold them close to your heart will bring hope, light, and life into your marriage.

You’re already in a war. It’s time to fight.

This book will equip you with tools to protect the five fronts of spiritual battle: your relationship with God, your identity, your family and friends, your church, and the world. Read More

Win Your War is a practical marriage, parenting, and relationship book that is grounded in the word of God and focused on recognizing Satan’s role in your life. Mark and Grace Driscoll help you understand the power Jesus gives you to overcome the enemy’s attacks.

Mark and Grace Driscoll look at the nature of spiritual warfare in response to Adam and Eve. God has a kingdom where his people are governed by the spirit. Satan has the world, where his people are governed by the flesh. Spiritual warfare is the battle between these two realities in everything, including our identity, temptation, gender, marriage, and emotional well-being. Some years ago Mark Driscoll preached on the Book of Genesis and discovered an unexpected theme about spiritual warfare that works itself out in all of human history: the storyline of the Bible is that there is first a wedding and then a war. Satan did not show up until a man and woman were married and had a ministry call on their lives. The first thing he did was attack marriage and separate men and women. After reading to this book, you will uncover the five fronts of spiritual battle: your relationship with God, your identity, your family and friends, your church, and the world.

“I want to believe, I want to have hope, but . . .” Pastor and bestselling author Craig Groeschel hears these words often and has asked them himself. We want to know God, feel his presence, and trust that he hears our prayers, but in the midst of great pain, we may wonder if he really cares about us. Read More

 Even when we have both hope and hurt, sometimes it’s the hurt that shouts the loudest. Can God be good when life is not?

In Hope in the Dark, Groeschel explores the story of the father who brought his demon-possessed son to Jesus, saying, “I believe! Help my unbelief!” In the man’s sincere plea, Jesus heard the tension in the man’s battle-scarred heart. He healed not only the boy but the father too, driving out the hopelessness that had overtaken him. He can do the same for us today.

As Groeschel shares his pain surrounding the current health challenges of his daughter, he acknowledges the questions we may ask in our own deepest pain: “Where was God when I was being abused?” “Why was my child born with a disability?” “Why did the cancer come back?” “Why are all my friends married and I’m alone?” He invites us to wrestle with such questions as we ask God to honor our faith and heal our unbelief.

In the middle of your profound pain, you long for authentic words of understanding and hope. You long to know that even in overwhelming reality, you can still believe that God is good. Rediscover a faith in the character, power, and presence of God. Even in the questions. Even now.

The best ‘u’ is in community.

We believe that life is a team sport, best done together! Groups are a great way to meet new friends, grow in your relationship with God and make a difference.

Groups consist of 9-12 people who get together each week in a convenient location to learn about the Bible, grow and have fun together. Groups are integral to all that we do at Fierce Church. As our church grows larger on Sunday, we grow smaller during the week. We encourage everyone to become involved in a Group on a weekly basis.

Fierce Groups are seasonal and last three months, which allows for a new group experience each semester.

Winter: February-April (Sign-up in January)
Summer: June-August (Sign-up in May)
Fall: October-December (Sign-up in September)

When you join a group, you’ll have the opportunity to

• make new friends and study a topic you like
• apply Biblical principles and topics to your life
• serve our church and community through servant evangelism projects.
