Fall is in the Air—No, Really!!

I have always loved fall. When I was in college I loved the start of the fall semester.

Just a bit of cool in the air, football was about to start, seeing all my friends I hadn’t seen over the summer, and the hope of making great grades.

I love fall now for different reasons. One of which is the idea of churches starting to focus on marriage more intentionally or maybe even for the first time. As I have worked in the local church, I have always found that our attendees love fall as well. Attendance rises, communicating they are ready to start fresh.

This year, we want to challenge churches as they are planning the fall, winter and spring curriculum for children and youth, they also plan their strategy to reach married couples. After all, what could be more important for kids than helping their moms and dads have a great marriage? Or as we say often, the most important part of your children’s strategy is your marriage strategy.

I am especially excited about this fall because we have spent a good portion of 2012 revamping our strategy and resources to be more like the rest of the Orange Strategy. We want to help you empower married couples all year long by helping them focus on the Core 4 Habits of a great marriage through larger group gatherings, small group experiences, and experiences for individual couples.

We think this new way of doing things is easier for you and more powerful for the married couples of your church. And at the risk of sounding like an infomercial, we are giving churches 50 percent off any strategy package if you buy it before May 11, 2012. By purchasing it now, you have the rest of the summer to schedule and get ready for a great fall!

We’re here to help! If you have any questions, please feel to contact us at mpinfo@marriedpeople.org.
