Marriage seminar set for March 3, 4

GRANGEVILLE — “I thought you were happy! I thought we had good marriage,” was my wife’s response when I mentioned to her I wanted to attend a marriage seminar,” said Don DuFrene.

“Our pastor had announced that Family Life was putting on a seminar in Coeur d’ Alene and I became interested. I laughed at my wife’s response and assured her I was very happy and thought we had a wonderful marriage. I wanted, however, to do all I could to make an already great marriage even better. Who wouldn’t, right? Also, as a church elder, I wanted to have useful information to help others in their marriages as well,” he said.

The seminar was three days long and it exceeded his expectations, he said.

A local event is set for March 3-4. “The Art of Marriage” will be held at the Super 8 Motel. It will start Friday, March 3, and will run 5:45-8:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 4, 1-7:30 p.m. (with a one-hour break for dinner 4:30-5:30 p.m.). DuFrene and his wife will be hosts to the event.

The fee is $10 per couple to defray some of the cost for the materials. In addition, Super 8 will offer a 10 percent discount to anyone staying the night for the seminar. Call 983-1002 for reservations.

To attend the marriage seminar call Don DuFrene, at 792-1662 to RSVP by March 1.

Ewing to speak at Encouragers

GRANGEVILLE —Debbie Ewing shares about recent ministry in India with Encouragers, Thursday, March 2, following the no-host luncheon at Oscar’s at 11:30 a.m.

Ewing, and her husband, Pastor Brent Ewing, spent weeks focusing on meeting the needs of a single primitive village. Tapestry Ministries, founded by the Ewings, began by providing clean, accessible water for villages, but they now seek to provide for multiple needs in a single village.

Working with established Christian churches in the area, they look for ways to help children and women with educational, health and hygiene needs. As they identify needs, they inform their Christian community and together they find creative ways to meet them.

The Ewings serve Centennial Evangelical Free Church in Grangeville and also hold regional positions in their denomination.

Encouragers meet at 101 E. Main the first Thursday of each month for fellowship and the sharing of God’s work in their lives. Call 983-0927.
