Riverside would like to invite you to Marriage Café, a marriage enrichment opportunity with a small, intimate, café-style environment. We will be meeting twice in the fall season, in the evening on the last Tuesday of every month (starting September 2020). Each evening will be hosted by a different couple, or marriage guide, who will expound on a topic or aspect of marriage from personal experience, followed by a Q&A session. We will also include time for you and your spouse to talk one-on-one. We look forward to having you join us for an encouraging and rejuvenating time of connection and fellowship with your spouse and other couples.
Please note that registration for each evening is set up individually. If you would like to register for both evenings, you have to register separately for each.
Free childcare is available through our RSI staff.
Len and Mary Sheard- "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff"
Married for 12 years, Len and Mary Sheard, each have unique marriage experiences. Len was widowed after 41 years married to his High School sweetheart. Mary was divorced after 27 years. They have been blessed to find love again at a later time in life. Len and Mary have facilitated FamilyLife's "Art of Marriage" seminar several times over their years together. Marriage to them is more than a commitment between two people; it is a covenant between God and the union of a man and a woman.
David and Amanda Lewis - "Fanning the Flame"
David and Amanda Lewis have been married five years. They were both widowed with young children after 7 and 10 years. As they grieved, they sought God and found comfort in Him. From the time they met and started a relationship, to their marriage 16 weeks later, and in their marriage since then, David and Amanda have sought to make God the center of their relationship and glorify him in their lives and in their marriage. Come and hear more about their love after loss, their “crock-pot” (or more like “Insta-pot”) family of eight children, and the importance of “fanning the flame” in Christian marriage.
