宣道會夫婦營 ALMA

宣道會夫婦營 ALMA (Marriage Encounter)

宣道會夫婦營的目的
- 重新建立夫婦關係
- 重新建立夫婦與神的關係
 
對夫婦的好處
- 夫婦得到清楚而實際的彼此溝通機會。
- 夫婦領會更深的親密關係。
- 夫婦明白,在婚姻的經歷中,自己並不孤單,別人也會有相同的感受、需要、挑戰和困難。
- 夫婦因為得到別人的認同而被鼓勵,有共同的希望、夢想和目標。
- 夫婦領會家人、朋友和教會所給與的一份愛和關懷。
 
夫婦營的架構
夫婦營是由四對夫婦聯合主持:有牧師夫婦和三對信徒夫婦。他們曾參加宣道會夫婦營,並是宣道會的會友。在夫婦營裡,共有13個見證環節。每節都為您提供獨自默想機會,並有充足時間讓您與配偶在自己房間內,得到安全和坦誠的交通。至於在別人面前公開分享,夫婦營只安排了有限的機會,除非參加者自願,否則不用開口分享。
 
夫婦營不是
⊗ 講學或授課
⊗ 銳覺(醒目)訓練
⊗ 深切的自我反省
⊗ 小組分享會
⊗ 查經班
⊗ 婚姻輔導
 
目標
- 提供夫婦一個溝通的工具,使他們能在配偶未改善之前,能充份地彼此分享幾方面,如態度與立場、希望與夢想、以及感受與需要等。
- 提供夫婦一個關心對方的環境,讓他們認識到,彼此培育是生活的優等質素。
- 加強認識在神面前的婚姻盟約,繼而欣賞神在婚姻的計劃中,所帶來的共同喜樂和責任。
 
夫婦營的費用
這是一個信心行動,夫婦營歡迎各種經濟能力不同的夫婦參加,我們不定收費,但在營會快要結束時,夫婦們可自行樂意分擔是次費用,包括食、住等,並可投資在下一屆將參加的夫婦身上,整個行動將在沒有難為情之下進行。

ALMA (Marriage Encounter)
 
THE PURPOSE OF A WEEKEND AT ALLIANCE MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER:
- To renew the couple’s relationship.
- To renew the couple’s relationship with God.
 
THE BENEFITS TO THE COUPLE:
- Couples receive sound, practical advice about marital communications.
- Couples discover the intimacy they can share.
- Couples realize that they are not alone in their marital experience: others have similar feelings, needs, challenges and problems.
- Couples are strengthened as they find others with similar hopes, dreams and goals.
- Couples are exposed to the love, care and concern of family members, friends, and the local church.
THE ALMA WEEKEND STRUCTURE:
The Marriage Encounter Weekend is presented by four married couples: a pastor and his wife, and three lay couples, all of whom have attended previous ALMA Weekends and are members of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church.

Throughout the ALMA Weekend, there are 13 presentations given with time provided to reflect, as individuals, after each presentation. Then, time is also provided for each couple to share their responses with their spouse openly and honestly in the privacy of their own room. Opportunities for group sharing are limited and participants are encouraged to share only if they desire.

MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER IS NOT:
⊗ A teaching or lecture series.
⊗ A sensitivity training course.
⊗ An intensive soul searching time.
⊗ A group sharing experience.
⊗ A Bible study.
⊗ Marriage counseling.

OBJECTIVES:
- To introduce couples to a communication tool so they can fully share attitudes and convictions, hopes and dreams, feelings and needs without the underlying expectation that their spouse has to change.
- To provide an atmosphere to enable sensitivity to each other that will bring to each a knowledge of the life-giving qualities necessary for the enhancement of mutual respect and benefit.
- To increase the awareness of the covenantal character of marriage with God and the appreciation of the mutual joy and responsibility to be shared in living out the marriage according to God’s plan for marriage.
COST OF AN ALMA WEEKEND:
ALMA offers weekends in the faith that couples may attend without regard to their economic ability. Couples are not discouraged from attending because of a lack of funds. We do not charge a specific fee to attend; however, near the end of the weekend, couples are given the opportunity to voluntarily share in the weekend costs, that include lodging and meals, to help invest in the lives of other couples who desire to come to the next encounter. This is done in a manner so that no one is embarrassed.

WHERE ARE THE ALMA WEEK-ENDS HELD?
