We facilitate weekend courses focusing on marriage, whether you are newly married or have been together for a long.
We generally host weekends at hotels or retreat centers. Typically we begin with a delicious dinner on Friday and with a lunch on Sunday.
Some topics that are often discussed are: • Foundation for marriage • Healthy families • Differences between men and women • Parenting • Forgiveness • Passion and Sex • Relationship with parents / in-laws.
Familiefokus sponsors three different types weekends:
Married Couples Weekend: This course is for couples of all ages, and you will thus benefit from each other’s experiences. Teaching is always done by a couple who have been married for a while, and they may share their own experiences of good and evil. This weekends are designed to be useful, basic, practical and concrete. During the teaching, you are allowed to discuss and process in groups. There is often free time Saturday afternoon.
Young Couples Weekend: It’s a good idea to go for relationship workshops early in the marriage or during your engagement.
Teaching is done in a relaxed and free setting, with lessons on how to build a solid foundation for marriage. Using simple principles you will learn to communicate better, manage conflict and show each other love. The weekend includes counseling / exercises, worship music, good food and social gatherings with lots of laughter.
Themed Weekends: During a themed weekend we organize a special focus on a topic in family life. Examples of a themed weekends can be anything from a romantic couples weekend in Rome, to teaching about sex and parenting, to separate meetings for pastors and leaders.
