Covenant of Love

Date Night is a ministry for Engaged and Married Couples at SFC offering monthly opportunities for Fellowship, Formation and Enrichment.

Date Night typically meets one Saturday evening a month, September through May, presenting topics relevant to engaged and married couples either through video presentation or live speakers. Most evenings have fellowship time, prayer, then a presentation followed by small group discussion and/or couple-time discussion.

Most sessions are free of charge and include babysitting with RSVP.

Presentations are designed so couples can come either occasionally or every month.  Some months we concentrate on Fellowship by having social events.

Generally our attendance varies between 6-12 couples.

Key Activities:

  • Meets one Saturday evening per month in Parish Center
  • Lead one Stations of the Cross for the Parish during Lent

February Date Night Set for the 23rd

February Date Night – 5 Love Languages Continues! Married/Engaged Couples, join us on Saturday, February 23 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.in the SFC Parish Center as we watch the final video of the series, “Growing in Love.”
 
The Five Love Languages Defined according to Gary Chapman
Do you know the 5 Love Languages? Here they are:
 
l. Words of affirmation – using words to build up the other person. “Thanks for taking out the garbage.” Not – “It’s about time you took the garbage out. The flies were going to carry it out for you.”
 
2. Gifts – a gift says, “He was thinking about me. Look what he got for me.”
 
3. Acts of Service – Doing something for your spouse that you know they would like. Cooking a meal, washing dishes, vacuuming floors, are all acts of service.
 
4. Quality time – by which I mean, giving your spouse your undivided attention. Taking a walk together or sitting on the couch with the TV off – talking and
listening.
 
5. Physical touch – holding hands, hugging, kissing, sexual intercourse, are all expressions of love.
 
Out of these five, each of you has a primary love language which speaks more deeply to you than all the others. Discovering each other’s language and speaking it regularly is the best way to keep love alive in a marriage.
 
Bring an appetizer, dessert and/or drink of choice to share.
 
Childcare will be provided with RSVP by February 20. Contact Chris and Ann Aguilar at aguilarbus@yahoo.com or (408) 356-7642.
