Where Did I Put That Map?: Expectations and the Journey of Marriage
When is the last time you unfolded (or Googled) your marriage map, acknowledging and evaluating expectations that you hold? Whether you are newlyweds, marriage veterans, the type that asks for directions, or the type that wants to find your own way, taking time to focus on expectations can be a great way to boost or reinforce your marital satisfaction. God has given you your spouse as a precious gift. Join Professor Paul Johns, Associate Professor of Human Development and Human Science at Messiah College on Friday evening, June 10 and Saturday, June 11 as we enjoy time together focusing on how to love our spouses with a grace-filled expectation map.

ACTS 4:32 Ministry Launched February 1. We have launched a special emphasis on prayer beginning February 1. In the Book of Acts we are told that “All the believers were one in heart and mind.” We want to spend a moment each day in this type of unity. To participate in this ministry is very simple.

To ring each day at 4:32 PM.
2. Check our New Hope Website where the Prayer Request of the Day will be listed.
