Marriage and Relationships
Robin & Claire Redick
People are relational by nature. God designed us to live in community. Whether it is getting along with the person next door, having a great marriage, dating well, or having amicable workplace interactions, we all experience fuller lives through positive relationships. Strong relational skills are foundational for living out God?s command for us to love one another, but it is not always easy.
Roswell Street offers many great opportunities to learn and practice useful relational skills based on Biblical principles:
Marriage / Pre-Marriage: Jesus said, “and the two shall become but one flesh. What God has joined together, let no man separate,” (Matthew 19:6). Whether you are engaged, newlywed, or are a seasoned veteran, you can find hope and healing for a troubled relationship, make a good marriage great, or even make a great marriage holy. We offer an array of enjoyable and practical classes and workshops that lead couples into personal encounters with each other as well as the God who created and ordained marriage.
Parenting: “Train up a child in the way he should go,” (Proverbs 22:6) is great advice, but we could all use a little help with just how to do it. Relational parenting workshops and classes are offered periodically throughout the year. Learn to find an effective balance between rules and relationship through knowing your child’s emotional and spiritual needs.

What: Called 2 Love Like Jesus Class
When: Wednesdays, March 11-April 29 @ 6:30-8:00pm (*no meeting on Spring Break Week, April 8)
Where: RSBC Room D-114
Facilitated: by Robin and Claire Redick
In this 7 week class in we will explore and discuss loving like Jesus. Jesus calls for love to be the identifying mark of his disciples. It’s a simple command but perhaps one of the toughest to truly follow. This Christ-like love is to be the essence of who we are and what we demonstrate to others – inside our homes, at the office, in the grocery, everywhere we go. Our prayer is that as we read and discuss this book together, we will come away with deeper insight and practical ways to live out Jesus’s command to love one another.
Pre-Marital Coaching & Marriage Coaching
Marriage coaching is provided free to our local community by For One Anotherand Roswell Street.
Why free? For One Another and Roswell Street believe that strong families are the foundation of strong communities. Our desire is that every couple would experience a marriage that is full of mutual love and that every child would grow up in a stable and home with both parents.
For One Another marriage coaching sessions are offered on Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm based on Robin and Claire’s availability. Sessions must be scheduled in advance.
What is Marriage Coaching?
Marriage coaching helps couples accomplish relationship outcomes that both spouses desire to achieve. Marriage coaches are skilled partners who help couples learn new skills, put plans into action, and experience success.
For One Another marriage coaching provides the following services:
- Wisdom regarding practices that foster strong marriages.
- Guidance to help couples identify specific, observable, and achievable goals.
- Structure to help couples accomplish streamlined and focused positive change.
- Action plans that build on existing strengths.
- Application tools to help couples carry out their action plans.
- Accountability and Encouragement.
Who can sign up for Marriage Coaching?
We believe that God designed marriage as a permanent relationship between a man and a woman. As a result, our experience and guidance fall in line with this perspective. We can provide useful perspective and tools to any husband and wife who have a good marriage but find themselves in a stuck place.
Might we need Marriage Counseling instead?
Marriage coaching is short term, goal specific, and action oriented. It is designed to help a couple put their marriage back on track in some specific area of need. Marriage coaching can be a powerful partnering force in these situations:
- Many aspects of your marriage are good.
- A known area of your marriage is hindered, and you need helpful wisdom, tools, and encouragement to work it out.
- You find yourself routinely in conflict over a specific issue.
- You are having trouble putting some marriage goal(s) into action.
- Both partners display a desire to improve and just need some help with what to do.
Marriage counseling is long term and meant to identify root causes for marriages in complex states of crisis. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, counseling is recommended.
- One or both spouses consider the marriage to be in crisis mode.
- One partner has checked out of the marriage in a critical area and shows no desire to work toward solutions.
- One partner has decided to divorce.
- A diagnosed mental health challenge or past trauma is creating continual difficulties in the marriage.
- Domestic violence, abuse, or threats are taking place.
