||A coalition of Brunswick County churches has come together to bring the 2011 Hearts & Souls Coastal Carolina Marriage Conference, featuring Steve & Annie Chapman, to New Beginnings Community Church in Shallotte, NC.
This event is designed to be an encouragement to married and engaged couples in the Carolinas who want to make good marriages better or to enrich marriages facing challenges. The conference provides an entertaining forum for couples to focus on their marriage for a weekend and to discover Godâ€™s plan and design for their marriage.
With over twenty-five years of ministering to married couples, Steve and Annie Chapman will charm their way into the hearts of attendees and encourage and strengthen all who attend. Using songs about marriage and the challenges of relationships and parenting, the Chapmans will present a concert of music and stories that will entertain, inspire and delight.
This yearâ€™s series is entitled â€śIt Takes the Carpenter to Build a Good Homeâ€ť and is based on precepts of Psalm 127. The conference will be a two-day, four-part series from 6:00-9:30 pm on Friday, February 18, 2011, and from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Saturday, February 19, 2011. Free Childcare, refreshments, conference tote bags and door prizes will be provided.
There are also a number of free scholarships that are being provided by the sponsoring churches to aid couples who would like to attend, but who are struggling financially. Tickets are $49/couple.
"We are thrilled to have the Chapmanâ€™s marriage ministry in our community through the Hearts & Souls Marriage Conference" said Rev. Brad Ferguson, Pastor of New Beginnings Community Church. "Our prayer is that marriages and lives will be touched and forever changed."
