Anyone who is married or thinking about getting married. Any age and any stage, welcome.
The purpose of the marriage ministry is to provide couples with the opportunity to understand what marriage is according to the One who created it. This is done in a fun and easy atmosphere to allow growth in five areas:
Connection – We want couples to connect with each other and with other couples. We can learn from each other and recognize that all marriages can grow.
Support – All marriages can experience conflict and struggle. We want to give couples a place to get support to make it through those times and grow through them.
Encourage – When we run a race, we need others to give us encouragement and push us to go further and love better.
Accountability – In order to grow we need accountability. This is someone checking in to see if we are accomplishing the goals we have set for our marriages.
Development – This is working on skills that are useful and vital for a good marriage. This can include communication skills, conflict resolution skills, and even having fun skills.
Classes & Events
During the first and third trimesters we offer classes during the 10:30 gathering. This is usually going through a book or video series and will include many hands-on activities. During the summer we usually offer one event per month designed to be fun and keep couples connected such as hiking, camping, and a game night.
