Marriage Ministry

Our ministry exists to support marriages! We believe that if we have strong marriages then we have strong families and a strong community. Whether you are thinking about getting married, been married for 50 years, loving your marriage, or just barely hanging on we have a space for you. 

Our desire is to serve couples in any relationship stages, including the following:

  • Preparing – Young adults, engaged couples, and single parents.

  • Starting – Married (and re-married) couples between 0-5 years.

  • Enriching – All married couples, including military and step-parents.

  • Restoring – Couples in crisis.

Ministry Purpose
To pursue oneness in marriage by creatively revealing the love of the Father, through the life of the Son, and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Ministry Goal
To encourage couples to invest in their marriage by attending conferences, workshops, small groups, spending quality time together, and doing life with other married couples.
