Fall in love all over again. Marriage, the way God intended, is a true art form. In The Art of Marriage Live, our FamilyLife guest hosts weave together expert teaching, real-life stories, humorous vignettes and more to portray both the challenges and the beauty of God's design. They'll show us how to apply what the Bible teaches about marriage in a powerful way. It's practical, funny and straight to the heart.

The annual children’s fall retreat sponsored by South Georgia’s Connectional Ministries is for students in 3rd-6th grades. This event typically sells out before the deadline and brings so much energy (and noise!) to the grounds of Epworth By The Sea retreat center on St. Simons Island, GA. 500 children and adult leaders come together with dozens of other church groups, learning how to worship, study God's Word, and understand what a relationship with Jesus really means. Amidst beautiful coastal scenery, amazing adult leaders (that's you!) and time away from home - these children are given an opportunity to experience Christ in brand new ways!

Deadline to register is September 9, 2019.
