How does re|engage work?
re|engage meets once a week for approximately two hours and has two major components: Large Group and Small Group.
Every evening begins in a large group setting. During this time you will hear:
- Couples publicly share their marriage story
- re|engage leaders teach principles for marriage growth
When Large Group concludes, couples move into Small Groups. Couples have different destinations depending on which stage of the re|engage process they are in. There are 3 stages:
Newcomers is for first-time attendees to re|engage. At Newcomers your leaders will share some of their marriage story, explain the re|engage process and discuss your next steps.
This is a safe environment for you to come and hear what re|engage is all about. No one will ask you to share.
Open Group is for couples that have attended Newcomers and are not yet in a Closed Group. Open Groups are a great place to begin working on your marriage.
Each week will feature group discussion on different marriage topics. At this time, you will have the opportunity to begin sharing some of your story at your own pace. You will also begin learning the value and ground rules of participating in small groups.
Closed Group consists of 4-5 participating couples and a facilitator couple who will walk through the 16-lesson re|engage curriculum together.
Closed Groups are formed when there are enough couples ready to join a Closed Group, and a facilitator couple is available. You will not be placed in a Closed Group until you have indicated that you are ready. Once formed, no new couples are added to the Closed Group.
