December Date Information

Hey guys,

Oh my, please forgive me for being sooo late with this date. It has been a very busy time for me and I totally forgot to post this date for December. I am so sorry. 

Well, It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. This can be a stressful time for some, a difficult time for some, and/or it can be a wonderful time for some. I hope we all

Find JOY this Christmas season as we celebrate Christ’s birth. As the church body,  We are the bride of Christ. For this date, you and your spouse do something together that celebrates the wonders of this season. It can be anything that brings you both joy. 

Have a wonderful date and a Merry Christmas 



Hey guys, Happy New Year! I can not believe it is 2024. This is our last date for this event. We also have our last Paul Tripp event. I am going to provide the link for this event for you to watch at home. I will have to figure out how we will all meet in February and where but I will work on that.  The January date is called Rocky, Paper, Scissors. In this date, you and your spouse will play rock paper scissors. Play the game and winner gets to decide first activity to do. After you finish the first activity together, play again and winner decides 2nd activity. Then when that activity is done you play one final time and the winner decides the last activity to do together. These Activities can be anything. Have fun with it. Be creative, and enjoy.  I will try to forward the Paul Tripp link that I received from Kyle.  Have a great time Kim. 


This month’s date we are calling “Friendsgiving”. It has become a popular event for the month of November over the past few years. We want you to get together with a few couples from GCT ( they don’t have to be doing 12 great dates necessarily but we do want it to be members/visitors of our congregation) either at your house, their house or even a restaurant and eat together and play games together. Enjoy each others company and fellowship together and let’s be thankful we have oneness in Christ. 


You and your spouse go do something together that is fall related or reminds you of the fall season. It could be apple picking (ok, Wilmington doesn’t have an apple orchard but if you want to go to the mountains for any reason, you can pick apples together), you could go to a corn maze, a football game, go pick out pumpkins from wherever you like to get pumpkins and either paint them together or carve them, make some kind of fall theme dinner together, walk through the woods and look at the beautiful leafs that may have changed color. It is up to you. Be creative. John and I are in ST Augustine this week and will do our date here most likely and it certainly is not screaming fall here as far as the weather but we have the whole week of just the two of us so we are doing 7 nights of dating. Lol. It does remind me of fall to be here since we came here every fall for many years.  Go enjoy each other and your creator who have is these wonderful seasons to enjoy.  Love is the willingness to have less free time, less sleep, and a busier schedule to be faithful to what God has called you to be and to do as a spouse, parent, neighbor, etc..
