Re|Engage Marriage Ministry

WHAT IS RE|ENGAGE?

Re|Engage is a marriage enrichment program that examines God's design for marriage and applies principles from the Bible to guide and move couples toward one-ness in their relationship through stories of grace, teaching and small groups. Marriages in any condition can benefit. Whether you’ve been married 2 months or 40 years, whether you would rate your relationship a 2 or 8, whether you are struggling to get along, your marriage is broken or you simply want to grow closer together as a couple, Re|Engage is a great place to reconnect, re-ignite and resurrect your marriage!

 

How Does Re|Engage Work?

Re|Engage Fall-Spring Schedule

Re|Engage meets every Wednesday for approximately two hours and has two major components: Large Group and Small Group.

Large Group 7:00-7:40 PM

Each Wednesday evening begins in a large group setting. During this time, you will hear:

  • Worship
  • A couple publicly share their marriage story
  • Re|Engage leaders teach principles for marriage growth

Small Group 7:40-9:00 PM

When Large Group concludes, couples move into Small Group. Couples have different destinations depending on which stage of the Re|Engage process they are in. There are three stages:

  • Stage 1 – NEWCOMERS is for first-time attendees to Re|Engage. At Newcomers your leaders will share some of their marriage story, explain the Re|Engage process and discuss your next steps. This is a safe environment for you to come and hear what Re|Engage is all about. Other than introduce yourself you will not be asked to share.
  • Stage 2 – OPEN GROUP is for couples that have attended Newcomers and are not yet in a Closed Group. This is a great place to begin working on your marriage. Each week will feature group discussion on different marriage topics. At this time, you will have the opportunity to begin sharing some of your story at your own pace. You will also begin learning the value and ground rules of participating in small groups.
  • Stage 3 – CLOSED GROUP consists of 4-5 participating couples and a facilitator couple who will walk through the 16-lesson Re|Engage curriculum together. Closed Groups are formed when there are enough couples ready to join a Closed Group and a facilitator couple is available. You will not be placed in a Closed Group until you have indicated that you are ready. Once formed, new couples are not added to the Closed Group.
Frequently Asked Questions

What does Re|Engage cost?

The initial registration is $20/per person ($40 per couple). If you make a decision to join a Closed Group, there is also a $150/per couple financial commitment.

Do you provide childcare?

YES! Childcare is provided for children 6 months -10 years old at no cost, but because of fluctuation in numbers, parents need to register each time they need care by NOON on TUESDAY. It is very important that our staff to child ratio be maintained for safety reasons. We never want to be in the position of turning away unregistered children. So please, register your children for care by emailing childcare@mcleanbible.org with all of the following information:

  • Event they are attending - Re|Engage
  • First date your child/ren will be in childcare
  • Parent’s name and cell phone number
  • Each child’s name, age and allergy information
    • Are there any behaviors we should be aware of?
    • Does your child have a disability?

After registering and upon arriving each Wednesday for Re|Engage, you simply bring your children to room 2203 on the second floor near the cafe. Childcare is available from 6:30 pm until 9:00 pm.

Do you provide childcare for children with special needs?

YES! Just follow the childcare instructions above by emailing childcare@mcleanbible.org the information requested. 

Can I come to Re|Engage without my spouse?

Absolutely. You will be encouraged by hearing stories from other couples that survived very difficult situations in Large Group, Newcomers, and Open Groups. However, Closed Groups are reserved for couples in which both spouses are committed to the process.

When can I join Re|Engage?

Fall Re|Engage Starts, Wednesday, September 26, 2018

We have designed our annual Re|Engage program to run from Sept. 26, 2018 until mid June 2019. You can register to attend Re|Engage and start any Wednesday evening between Sept. 26, 2018 through mid June 2019.

What dates will Re|Engage not meet?

In 2018, Re|Engage will not meet on Nov. 21, Dec. 5, 12, 19 & 26.

In 2019, Re|Engage will not meet on Jan. 2 & Apr. 17 & June 19-July 3.

What about inclement weather?

When there is inclement weather, check the MBC website. MBC follows the government, so if the government is canceled, Re|Engage is canceled.

How many weeks does Re|Engage run?

When you join Re|Engage, one can expect a schedule something like this:

WEEK - 1

Attend a NEWCOMERS GROUP

WEEK - 2

Attend OPEN GROUP - you remain in open group until you are ready to join a closed group. 

WEEK - X

Once in a CLOSED GROUP - made up of 4-6 couples - there is a $150/couple cost, and a 16-week curriculum [one book per person] that you work through. Each closed group will take on its own dynamic as to how fast or slow the group moves through the material until the course is complete which determines the end date. 

Where does Re|Engage meet in the McLean Bible Church building?

The address of the McLean Bible Church is 8925 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA 22182. If you are not familiar with our building, park on the UPPER deck of our parking garage by the 2A entrance doors and follow the Re|Engage signs to the back elevators #3 & #4 behind the MBC Café to floor 1A. Note: elevators #1 & #2 will not go to floor 1A. Once on floor 1A, pick up your name tag or register and join us in the open area for large group. 

Does Re|Engage ever meet on Sundays?

In 2019, Re|Engage will run an 8-week Sunday morning program, July 7 - August 25 at 11:00 am, on floor level 1A. Children attend their regularly scheduled Sunday morning program during this time. 

What is the origin of Re|Engage?

The program was launched at Watermark Community Church in September 2008 and has since expanded to other churches nationwide. You can learn more by visiting www.marriagehelp.org.
