CONFERENCES & RETREATS

 

Weekend to Remember Marriage Conference

Life has a way of overwhelming a marriage. Jobs, kids, activities, errands. Before you know it, checking your e-mail is more important than carving out a date night. FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember marriage conference is a chance to make a change. It’s a time to rediscover each other and find more intimacy in your life together.

 

Visit http://www.familylife.com/weekend for more information. Be sure to use the group code ClevesMarriages to receive a discount. If you are having financial difficulties, please email cleves.church@zoomtown.com or call the church office at 513-941-0259 to see if you qualify for a scholarship.

 

Love & Respect Video Marriage Conference

The Love & Respect marriage conference provides the answer to the secret that cracks the communication code. The conference is a presentation that unfolds three basic principles: 1) The Crazy Cycle 2) The Energized Cycle 3) The Rewarded Cycle. Visit www.loveandrespect.com for more information and for conference locations and dates.

 

 

 

 

FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY

 

One of the biggest hurdles that most marriages have to overcome is money. Fighting about money is one of the leading causes of disharmony and discontent in marriage. It is also one of the things that contribute to divorce.

 

Things seem so complicated with the economy that couples lose sight of how fixing the little things can turn a relationship from faltering to firm. There are some things that you can do to help strengthen your marriage as well as reduce the amount of time you spend as a couple fighting over money.

 

Here at Cleves Church of Christ we are aware of today’s financial challenges and would like to help. That’s why we have partnered with Financial Peace University (FPU).

 

What is Financial Peace University?

Financial Peace University is a life-changing program that will teach you and your spouse how to achieve your financial goals by eliminating debt, saving for the future, and giving like never before. 

 

Through a 16-week online video curriculum – taught by financial expert Dave Ramsey - you will be challenged and motivated as a couple to make a plan for your money and change your family tree forever.  Class is in session 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  

 

Financial Peace University is highly entertaining for everyone, with a unique combination of humor, informative financial advice and biblical messages.
