Local Church Addressing Relationship Issues During Church Services

Local Church Addressing Relationship Issues During Church Services

Open Arms Community Church in Bradford, PA is launching a four week sermon series geared toward helping people strengthen their relationships this coming weekend.

The series of talks, called "Relationship Rescue" will start Sunday, March 28 at Open Arms, and will address practical steps that can be taken to improve relationships from a biblical perspective.

Week One of Relationship Rescue will explain that there is hope that even broken relationships can be restored, but it also has a cost. Week Two discusses the kind of attitude necessary to make a relationship function at it's best. Week 3 explains that love works best when it's put into action. Week Four addresses "building a better mate."

Relationship Rescue is the continuation of a campaign at Open Arms to bring hope and healing to broken relationships, especially considering that the divorce rate in the US is over 60 percent. In February, Open Arms ran a four part series called "Finding Your Bella/Edward" which used the popular "Twilight" series as a launching pad to addresses issues of dating and romance. Open Arms also addressed relational issues in "The Simple Life" in March, which encourages people to focus less on the "rat-race" and to realign their lives to what matters most. Full-length videos of both of these sermon series are available online at http://www.openarmsbradford.org.

Starting in May, Open Arms will continue their relationship-enriching curriculum with "Building a Better Life".

Open Arms Pastor Mike McAvoy says, "Jesus said he came to give us 'life to the full' or life at it's best. I think we are all looking for that, but we're just trying to find it in some other way or place other than Jesus, but what we're finding is you can have a good job, marriage and family, and all kinds of stuff and activities, but it doesn't make us happy or whole. Jesus called us to a new way of living that provides those transcendent qualities of purpose, fulfillment, love, and peace. This is what the series 'Building A Better Life' is all about."
