Marriage and Family Resources

Josh and Kelly

Marriage and Family Pastor Josh Galgan and his wife Kelly

We’ve been joyfully married for over 26 years and believe that strong marriages are rooted in Christ and have learned that we need to continually grow in authentic communication.

Healthy Marriages are the cornerstone for families.  At Pathway we want you to know that we are for you in Marriage.

Please check out and consider the following options:

 

re|engage 

Marriage is hard work. But because many people tend to think they can make their relationships work on their own, they don’t seek the help and provision God has for them. Is that you? If so, then let me tell you about re|engage. re|engage is a ministry for every marriage- the healthy, the struggling, and the broken. re|engage is a sixteen-week ministry providing married couples a safe place to move toward oneness through small groups, teaching, and Grace. Email marriage@pathwaychurch.life for more information and to register. 

re|engage ministry meets Fall through Spring each year with new small groups that launch in the Fall and again in the Spring season.

You must register to attend. Cost is $24 per couple and includes 2 workbooks.

ENGAGE

Couples who receive premarital coaching are 20% less likely to experience divorce. If you are engaged or seriously dating and thinking about getting engaged, we want to invite you to be a part of ENGAGE.

ENGAGE is an eight-week ministry that happens primarily on Thursday nights from 6-7:30p starting October 6th as well as various times throughout the week depending on your Marriage Guide pairing and scheduling. We offer ENGAGE both in the fall and Spring time.

At ENGAGE you will work with a Marriage Guide couple who will facilitate impactful discussion around matters such as oneness, decision making, authentic communication, money, and intimacy.

You must register to attend. Before meeting with your Marriage Guide couple, you will be sent a link from SYMBIS (Save Your Marriage Before It Starts) to complete a premarital assessment (Cost $30 per couple).

ENGAGE ministry meets for a Fall and Spring session each year.

Awana/Childcare:

Please note ENGAGE will happen in coordination with childcare and AWANA. 

Childcare for kids Birth-4 years old for ENGAGE is provided at no additional cost. Kids 5 years old (by September) -Grade 5 can participate in AWANA, a kids ministry created to help elementary students study God’s word and memorize scripture! 

There is an additional cost to participate in AWANA, however scholarships are available upon request. 

AWANA started in September and will continue through May, and your kids can participate through the whole year, beyond when your ENGAGE session ends. 

On weeks that ENGAGE meets, but AWANA is off, we will provide childcare for all elementary age kids Birth-Grade 5. 

To help our marriage team be aware of your kids who will be participating in Childcare/AWANA on Thursday nights, please indicate on your registration for ENGAGE your kids basic information, and then if they will be participating in AWANA please email our kids team to get them registered by emailing kids@pathwaychurch.life and mention that you are participating in Marriage Ministry.

Foundations: Enrichment for all marriages

Foundations is a weekly time of practical teaching, couples discussion, and group discussion to enrich your marriage. 

Foundations meets on Sundays at 9:30a in the Ministry Center “Summit” Room 108 and is starting a new teaching series beginning February 5th, through April called “Marriage on the Rock”. No registration needed.

Children will be able to participate in Kids ministry while Foundations meets. Afterwards, couples are encouraged to attend the 11:15a service together. We ask that any kids in our children’s ministry get checked out after the 9:30a service, and if couples want, be checked back in for children’s ministry at 11:15a to allow our Kids team to transition volunteers and reset rooms between services.

For more information about Foundations and if its a right fit for you, email foundations@pathwaychurch.life
