Marriage Workshop
October 22 | 5:30pm-8:00pm
The Workshop with Jan Meier (LPCC) will be on the topic of Marriage. The gift of marriage is perhaps the most important earthly relationship that God has given us. But creating a great marriage is a lifelong learning experience. This workshop/seminar will focus on building on our strengths and the appreciation of our spouses, along with increasing our communication and conflict resolution skills, while building better emotional intimacy and cooperation. The evening promises to be entertaining with practical tips. Childcare will be available. Sign up HERE and let us know you are coming and if you will be in need of childcare.

Are you newer to Mainstreet? Do you have questions about the church? Would you like to hear about some of the core ministries and commitments of Mainstreet, as well as have an opportunity to meet a few of the staff? Then Connect is for you. You are invited to a reception with us- just RSVP HERE so we know you’ll be with us. A light breakfast will be served. Can't wait to see you there!

Memorial Trees
Have you considered honoring someone you love or have appreciated for a life well lived? Consider having a Memorial Tree planted on the grounds at Mainstreet. When you give toward a Memorial Tree, you choose the type of tree to be planted. Along with the tree on the grounds, a brass leaf will also be engraved and placed on the Memorial Tree inside of the main entryway. This is a great way to honor others who have been important to you. For more information, contact Jeff Burson (mailto:jburson@mainstreetlife.org or 419.838.7600 x130), or fill out the form attached HERE.
