Marriage Enrichment

Our desire is to build and strengthen marriages both before and after the wedding ceremony.  We want to spread God’s fame by guiding couples to intentionally discover their God-given purpose in marriage and to have thriving, God-honoring marriages.  Whether your marriage is rocking or rocky, our Marriage Enrichment ministries are here to take you to the next level in your marriage. 

PRE-MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT

"I Promise" 

This is a biblically-based premarital resource designed to help engaged couples prepare for a God-centered marriage. Through another mentoring couple, the engaged couple is inspired by learning biblical truths and how God created each of their unique personalities. Topics covered include: roles in marriage; proper communication; conflict resolution; forgiveness; sexuality; and finances. The result is a strengthened foundation for a joyful, divine marriage.

BLENDED FAMILY ENRICHMENT

We know it can be challenging when two households come together.  We have a Blended Family Growth Group that helps address some of these issues. The small group meets on Sundays, 11am in Room 144.  The Blended Family ministry also hosts a yearly Blended Family simulcast.
