The Why & What
At FBCG, we believe that God designed marriage to be a beautiful reflection of Christ’s love for His Bride, the Church. Our Young Couples Group is a Christ-centered community committed to supporting and encouraging strong, God-honoring marriages from the very beginning. It is an opportunity to be involved in intentional community with other young married and engaged couples, learn from a mentor couple, and get real about marital joys and challenges.
The When & Where
Starting February 5, 2014, we will meet on Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., at the home of:
Dan and Connie Lasse
623 Hamilton Way
Batavia, IL 60510
This group is open to all engaged and young married couples (in their 20s-30s) without children.
Register for the group at the bottom of this page. There is no cost to join this group.
The Young Couples Group will begin with a study of iMarriage by Andy Stanley. Standing at the altar, couples have a picture of what marriage will look like. The problem is that this picture of marriage results in expectations that we unload on our spouse. The weight of these expectations will rob your marriage of love and joy. As a spouse you never feel like you measure up and you never feel like you are good enough.
So what do you do with your expectations? You can’t deny them, because most expectations started out as God-given desires. In this series, Andy Stanley explains that you must learn to transform your expectations and look to God if you are to experience marriage as it was designed.
