Marriage and Family

From the very beginning, God demonstrates His value of marriage and family.  We affirm God’s honor of marriage and family and desire to help you find God’s purpose for your relationship. Because these relationships are a part of God’s design, we have tools that will help you navigate your relationships.  Whether you are thinking about getting married, building your marriage and family or walking through a difficult place, there is a plan just for you.

“Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage.”    Hebrews 13:4

Marriage & Parenting Connection Groups

Marriage is a gift from God and we want you to discover God’s great plan for your marriage.  We also know there are no quick fixes in parenting.  Parenting takes time, attention and love. In marriage and family (parenting) groups, we will focus on God’s design for couples and families, as well as learn with other like-minded couples on this same journey.
