re engage FAQS
When Do We Meet?
We meet every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:15 pm in Stage 1 (8000 Western Hills Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76108). Our enrollment is continual; there is no need to register or sign up ahead of time (just show up!).
Is Kids’ Ministry Available?
Kids’ Ministry is available for children ranging from infant to 5th grade. Please register here.
How Much Does It Cost?
There is no cost to begin the ministry. The only cost occurs when you begin a closed group; we ask for $90 per couple. The one-time payment of $90 per couple helps cover the cost of materials to put re|engage on each week, as well as provide you and your spouse with a re|engage workbook to be used in your closed group. We never want the cost to be a prohibiting factor to you investing in your marriage, so if you cannot afford that right now, please just let us know.
How do Small Groups start?
Most Small Groups are launched at the beginning of 6th grade with the aim of staying together through high school graduation. They are formed based on grade and gender. Groups are open and regularly add members along the way.
What Happens When I Get There?
At 6:30 pm on Wednesdays, we meet as a large group to worship and listen to a couple’s testimony who has pursued oneness in their marriage during the midst of hard times. After the testimony, a leader will announce that we are breaking into small groups.
Open Group is a great place for you to begin to pursue oneness in your marriage and begin to work on yourself. If your spouse is unable or unwilling to attend, you are welcome to come to Open Group on your own; however, both the husband and wife need to be committed in order to join a closed group. After attending Open Group, are committed to the process, and we have a leader couple ready, you will be placed in a closed group (small group) with 4-5 other couples who are in your same life stage.
Once you get into a closed group, you will begin working through the curriculum which is rooted in Scripture, incorporating the 16 biblically based lessons. You will have a facilitator couple who will walk with your group as you go through the re|engage journey. The entire re|engage journey takes about 6-9 months.
Foundation Groups exist to help establish newly married couples for a lifetime of oneness and ministry in the context of Christ-centered community.
Foundation Groups are community groups for Watermark Fort Worth Members who’ve been married three years or less.
Designed to establish couples for a lifetime of marital oneness and ministry, Foundation Groups include four to six newly married couples who are led by an experienced married mentor couple. Couples walk through a 15-month curriculum created to help them build their lives and marriage on a solid foundation (Matthew 7:24-27), with the hope that they become more like Jesus, experience healthy community, grow in oneness, and learn to live on-mission.
Foundation Groups FAQs
What type of commitment is required for these groups?
The best foundation groups get together 4-6 times per month. They meet twice per month in the home of the leader couple to walk through the curriculum and then 2-4 additional times each month for accountability, social connection and service. At the very least, you will need to plan on this being a weekly commitment.
What type of curriculum do you go through in a foundation group?
The curriculum is put in place as a guide for your group, but it is not meant to restrict your group from traveling outside of the set curriculum to discuss the day to day issues that come up as newly married couples. Here is a general overview of what is covered:
Biblical view of marriage
Communication & Conflict
Finances & Stewardship
Where do foundation groups meet?
Foundation groups meet in the home of the mentor couple. If you have children, you will be responsible for childcare as it is not provided for each foundation group since all of them meet off site.
