February 16 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pmFree
Pastor Cody Mills and his wife will be hosting a couples gathering @ Hazel Run Lutheran Church parsonage starting at 6:30 pm on Feb. 16. This will be an enjoyable time as we gather together in fellowship. Please bring kids, snacks, pop. We are asking to keep it an alcohol free event for respect of those that may struggle with alcoholism. We must support those who struggle and lift them as well.
Who qualifies? Married couples that have been married under 20 years. This includes current marriage if there has been a divorce. We also would like to see those that have been together for quite some time, living together or not. Please bring couples that you know!
The following events will take place.
1) Introduction of couples and backgrounds
2) Watch a comedian about relationships (this relates well)
3) Closing discussion on Genesis 2:18-24
The purpose of this event and the continuation of the event is create a support group among the couples peers. Introduce each other and learn that we can rely on one another for comfort and help. We will learn what it takes to be a couple and how companionship with the significant other is imperative and how the community supports the couples.
This event will be fun for sure.
18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for[a] him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed[b] every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam[c] there was not found a helper fit for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made[d] into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said,
“This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.”[e]
24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
