Married MENTOR LED ALL AGES

MARRIED GROUP #1

THRIVE is an 8 WEEK marriage curriculum focusing on basic principles that help couples succeed.  This group will be led by two mentor couples.

Brooks & Chris McCommons have been married for 21 years and have three kids (Neely, Bennett, and Banks).

Andy & Tara Lowry have been married for 24 years and have three kids (Luke, Seth, and Lydia).

We (The Lowrys and the McCommons) are close friends that understand the ups and downs of marriage and want to help other couples navigate the marriage dynamics and relational pitfalls.  Our time together will be fun, interactive, meaningful, and most of all...helpful.  We will meet in-person at Athens Church and will have plenty of space for physical distancing.  

Each couple will need to purchase the THRIVE guide book ($15).  

Once you register as a couple, all communication will be coming from leaders.

Married COLLEGE EMPTY NESTER

MARRIED GROUP #2

We are Don and Nancy.   We are both originally from the Northeast, Don is from MA and Nancy grew up in PA.  After Don spent a few years in the Navy, he went to college where he met the perfect woman for him to spend the rest of his life with.  You may be able to tell, by now, who wrote this. (grin).  We married three years after graduating and have raised three children. Don is on the business side of the medical field and Nancy spent most of her career in teaching and research at UGA.
We have been at Athens Church for over 12 years and have been blessed to have led many wonderful small groups along the way. We are looking forward to starting this new group and are dedicated to creating an environment in which we can walk through life together exploring our faith, engaging in honest and open conversations, and having lots of laughs. 

It is certainly challenging to facilitate a close community experience during these times of physical distancing. However, we are determined to provide the opportunity to share our lives and connections with Jesus without sharing any spreadable virus. (We have a room available where we can spread out with 6-feet between couples.) 

We are praying for you already and look forward to starting our group life together.

As a group, we will spend 1/2 of our time connecting relationally and 1/2 of our time growing spiritually.
