BUILD A BETTER MARRIAGE
RE|ENGAGE MARRIAGE MENTORING
Re|Engage is a ministry that links married couples with a mentor couple for the duration of a Spring or Fall semester. Re|Engage Mentor Groups will complete 14 weeks of marriage development material and mentoring. This is our 12th session of building better marriages in Re|Engage.
Here’s how a typical night of Re|Engage looks: Each Wednesday at 6 pm, doors will open in Room 270 for couples to gather for 15 minutes of refreshments and fellowship, followed by a time of large group encouragement before meeting in Re|Engage Mentor Groups of 5 – 7 other couples. The weekly session will end in time to pick up kids from After Care in their ministry areas by 8 pm.
Pre-requisites and Registration: Couples are asked to read the FAQ and register before Test Drive Night on August 17. Before arriving at Test Drive Night, complete the Test Drive Lesson with your spouse. When you arrive on Test Drive Night, you’ll walk through the Test Drive Lesson discussion in a mentor group. All of this will give you a clear sense of what to expect for the remainder of the semester. After you indicate your desire to continue with the semester, you’ll make the $40/couple semester tuition payment and receive your couple workbooks.

Weekend to Remember. For more than 40 years, Weekend to Remember getaway weekends have witnessed the healing, restoration, and reconciliation of marriages.

First Baptist Bryan is sending a group to San Antonio, November 17-19, 2023. But you don’t have to wait for a scheduled group trip — any couple can attend any weekend that works best for them — and there are many dates and destinations to choose from.

God expects us to need help. He has not called us to live in isolation without helpers. That’s why He’s provided many helpers for His children in the church and faith community. You and your family matter to God. Our church encourages and fully supports you seeking the help you need.
