Frequently Asked Questions about Married for Life
WHO CAN ATTEND A GROUP?
Married for Life groups are for married couples who are willing to work on their marriage together.
HOW CAN WE GET INTO A MARRIED FOR LIFE GROUP?
To join a Married for Life group, 3 ways to do that. You can either attend an outreach party or you may contact our administrator at +65 8613 4392 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW LONG DOES EACH MARRIED FOR LIFE GROUP LAST?
Each group lasts 12 weeks and is followed by an Outreach Party to which you can invite family and friends.
CAN COUPLES JOIN ANYTIME DURING THE 12 WEEKS?
No. The group is closed to new members during the 12 weeks. This provides continuity as well as confidentiality for group members. Each group consists of up to 7 couples including the leaders.
IS THERE A FEE?
The registration fee is S $100 per couple for the entire course. The registration fee is kept nominal so that no couple is prevented from attending a group due to financial constraints. In addition, a freewill offering is taken each week during the group meeting.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM A GROUP?
Married for Life groups are not counseling sessions. Each week a specific scriptural principle is taught that when applied to your marriage, will transform your relationship. Each lesson is accompanied by homework that reinforces the principle taught in the group. The degree to which a couple is committed to working on their marriage is the degree to which they will see changes.
WHO TEACHES THESE GROUPS?
Each group is lead by a Lead Couple and a Leader-in-Training Couple. They have undergone rigorous training and must participate in ongoing training and discipling to be 2=1 leaders. Each couple must be recommended by their pastors and have a good relationship with their local church.
