Relationships take a lot of effort. And even when you put the work in, they can be hard to navigate. But no matter where you and your family have been or where you are, there are opportunities to transform your relationships at Chase Oaks.

Here are five ways you can transform your relationships this season!

1. Attend a conference.

A simple step you can take to make a difference at home is to attend a conference of experts that will give you practical tools to transform your relationships and that will discuss important topics relevant to the modern family.

The Family Now Conference is a one-day gathering where we will learn practical skills for a healthy home life. We will have a collection of specialists and experts that will discuss topics such as marriage, communication, and parenting in compelling breakout sessions.

Keynote Speaker Dr. Kara Powell will share how you can eliminate calendar clutter and leverage technology to be a bridge to your family. Her research-based practices will help you transform your relationships at home and help you spend your time on relationships and priorities that matter most to your family.

The Family Now Conference will take place on Saturday, September 21, from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at the Legacy Campus. Register today for the early bird rate! Your family is worth the investment.

2. Check out resources on relationships.

Whether you are single, dating, married, or parenting with kids at home, you have people in your life that matter most. And you probably have relationships you are trying to get right. No matter what life stage you are in, we have some great resources to help you win at home.

In our “Home Team” series, we are searching the Bible for practical ways we can win at our most important relationships. From dating to parenting, there will be a topic that can help everyone improve a specific area in their home life.

To dive deeper into our “Home Team” series, we put together a Home Team Toolkit with incredible resources focused on topics such as marriage and parenting. These resources can help you build a healthy home life.

3. Join a small group designed for married couples.

At Chase Oaks, we believe in the importance of small groups because we know that’s where true transformation happens. And we have a small group specially designed for married couples.

ReNew: Marriage is for husbands and wives who are looking to better themselves in their marriage. It is for couples looking for ways to deepen their connection with one another and for couples that feel like they are holding on by a thread. ReNew: Marriage is designed to transform each person so that their marriage can flourish the way God intended.

ReNew: Marriage meets on Thursdays from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Legacy Campus. There is no need to register ahead of time. Childcare is available. Just come and check out ReNew: Marriage to see how it can transform your marriage today!

4. Get ready for marriage before you say, “I do.”

One of the keys to a successful marriage is starting marriage with a Christ-centered foundation. At Chase Oaks, we are committed to making marriages last a lifetime. Therefore, we want to give you the tools you need to get ready for marriage before you say, “I do.”

Our premarital class, Getting Ready for Marriage, equips participants to confront big issues such as communication, finances, spirituality, and intimacy prior to the wedding day.

5. Improve your finances.

Money problems is one of the leading causes of disagreements in relationships, which can lead to messy break-ups and divorces. But you do not have to let money problems ruin your relationships. You can learn how to find freedom in your finances by getting back on track with your monthly budget.

Our Sloan Creek Campus will host Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) in the fall. FPU will give you biblical principles and critical tools to help you save, dump debt, create a financial plan, and avoid financial mistakes. In this nine-week course, you and your significant other will discover hope and practical help in your finances.

FPU begins on Wednesday, September 25, at 6:30 p.m. For more information or for registration, check out Financial Peace University.

We hope this will be a great season of transformation in your relationships and home. Building a healthy home begins with building healthy relationships!
