We all know what’s required to fall in love . . . a pulse. Falling in love is easy, but staying there, that’s something else entirely. South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is pleased to announce a new teaching series starting Saturday, May 25, at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 26, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m., entitled Marriage: Falling in Love. Staying in Love.

With more than a thousand matchmaking services available today and new ones springing up all the time, finding a romantic match is easier than ever. But staying with the one you’ve found seems to be the real challenge.

“You fall in love with a noun. You stay in love with a verb,” said Martin Hawley, senior pastor. Is it possible for two people to fall in love and actually stay there? Absolutely! Learn how in this 4-part series, which includes the following messages:

  1. The Secret to Staying in Love (John 13:34; Ephesians 5:21) – May 25 & 26: Make love a verb. It's a verb ... not a noun. We are to love and submit to one another as Christ loved us and submitted himself for our sake. It's never been easier to fall in love and never been harder to stay in love. Is it even possible for two people to be happy together forever? Yes. Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus gave us the foundation for enduring love. In this message, Pastor Hawley reveals the simple, yet powerful, principle.
  2. Blueprint for Marriage (Philippians 2:3-8) – June 1 & 2: Relationship comes before rights, rank, or respect. Do you remember what it felt like to fall in love? How you would do anything for that person? What happens to those feelings? Falling in love comes naturally. But staying in love requires a plan. While many couples just endure their marriages, in this message, Pastor Hawley shares a blueprint for maintaining, and even growing, those feelings over time.
  3. What’s Love Got to Do with It (Proverbs 4:23) – June 8 & 9: Your ability to stay in love has as much to do with the condition of your heart as it does the behavior of your partner. What's in you is coming out, so pay attention to what's in you. What happens after I do? How can the person to whom a woman gave her deepest vow become the person she despises most? How can the beautiful woman a man couldn't stay away from become the person he can't stand to be around? In part 3, Pastor Hawley dispels a common myth about why we fall out of love and exposes the true problem.
  4. The Gaps in Marriage (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) – June 15 & 16: Staying in love requires believing the best. What's different about people who stay in love? What is their secret . . . their magic formula? They've learned what to place in the gaps between expectations and reality. To wrap up this series, Pastor Hawley shares this secret from a part of the familiar Scripture passage, 1 Corinthians 13.
