“You and Me Forever” Initiative

front_coverBeginning the week of April 19, we will temporarily step out of our regular Community Groups for 8 consecutive weeks to journey through this very interesting book. Our vision is to see existing marriages strengthened, potential marriages better prepared for, and for all involved to understand where marriage fits into God’s eternal perspective.

From the book promotional…Marriage is great, but it’s not forever. It’s until death do us part. Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives. While we cannot allow lesser things to destroy our marriages, we also cannot allow marriage to distract us from greater things.

In his latest book, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity, Francis Chan and his wife Lisa address the question that many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a great marriage?” Setting aside typical topics on marriage, Francis and Lisa dive into Scripture to understand what it means to have a relationship that satisfies the deepest parts of our souls.

You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will radically shift the way we see one of the most important relationships in our life. Whether you are single, dating or already married, You and Me Forever will help you discover the adventure that you were made for ­­and learn how to thrive in it.

“You and Me Forever” Groups. We encourage everyone to consider joining a group:

  • Sundays @ 6pm
  • Tuesdays @ 7:30pm

You can contact us at info@mercyhillblog.org and let us know what night you’ll be attending. The benefit of two groups, both on the same pace, is that if you happen to miss your regular group, you can “make up” by joining one of the other groups. We encourage you to serve one another by “swapping” childcare with couples meeting on different nights.

Costs? For the class, you will need to purchase a copy of the book (available in print and on Kindle at Amazon.com). There is a great “Do Something” section at the end of each chapter that really helps you get maximum impact in your life and marriage and/or relationship.

100% of the net profits from each book sold goes straight to a vision God has given the Chans to raise $5 million to feed the hungry, free women from prostitution and spread the gospel to unreached places. You can find more information on this vision at http://www.youandmeforever.org/.
