It all seemed so easy. There was so much to say, but now, intimacy, trust, and fun times were replaced with bickering, long silences, and hurried conversations. Does this sound like your marriage? On Friday, April 23, at 7:00 p.m., South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is holding a one-time, virtual workshop entitled Fresh Hope for Stale Marriages with Dr. Mark Hager.
Dr. Hager will expose the sneaky things that creep into marriages and destroy them. He will show each participant how to renew their marriage by focusing on one often neglected and forgotten relationship, and he will give practical steps to refresh your relationship and reestablish closeness and intimacy.
“Many years ago, my wife and I were on the edge of divorce. I had an attorney on the phone more than once. If it weren’t for Dr. Hager and his wise counsel, Kimberly and I would not be married today,” said Martin Hawley, senior pastor of South Bay Bible Church.
Fresh Hope for Stale Marriages is a one-hour, online event designed to help you begin the journey to a godly, enriching, and fulfilling marriage relationship. This workshop is offered to the public without charge as a community service by South Bay Bible Church, which is underwriting all costs associated with the event.
South Bay Bible Church has noticed a significant deterioration in marriages, especially during the quarantines associated with COVID-19. A study done by Legal Templates documented a 57% increase in separations during the start of last year’s pandemic (ref. http://bit.ly/sbbcref).
To attend Fresh Hope for Stale Marriages, please register by April 16.
Once registered, you will receive the conference link and workshop materials. Questions may be directed to South Bay Bible Church at (631) 909-8241 or by email at email@example.com.
