Marriage & Family

Marriages and families are important to us at Christ Church. That’s why we have many options available to help take your marriage – and family – one step closer to awesome!

Marriage Reconnect Home Group

Connecting to God & Each Other | Wednesdays | 6-7:15 p.m. | Lees Home
Marriage is beautiful when it’s working well. Yet there are moments, even seasons, when it seems like you are disconnected. The conflict and tension are real—sometimes overwhelming. The good news is God doesn’t leave us in the difficult places. Just as He has connected with us, He wants us to reconnect with each other. It takes grace, truth and intentionality. If you are at a place as a couple where you realize you need to reconnect to God and to each other, then this six-week small group is for you. This is not a typical marriage group. It’s going to be real, and it’s going to be raw. And ultimately, it’s going to be good. Hosted by Scott & Kristen Lees/Steve & Jo Ellen Druelinger. If interested and for more details, contact Scott Lees.

Parent2Parent Forum

Parenting is a lifelong learning process. We never “arrive.” Part of that process is learning from others who have gone before us. Each forum will feature a panel of a few couples who have gone through a specific area of parenting. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panel about that day’s topic. Think of it as the Church being the Church and helping each other get through life while learning along the way.

MarriedPeople Night Out

Every couple needs a night out. Join us for great food, lots of fun with some other married couples and take away something super practical for our marriages. Remember, whether you’ve been married for four days or 40 years, you need a Night Out!

Premarital Counseling

A strong marriage is built on a strong foundation. We provide couples with in-depth information and helpful tools to build that foundation using the Prepare/Enrich assessment, an assessment that has been in use for 40+ years and has been utilized by more than four million couples. If you are getting married, contact Congregational Care to set up a time to get started on your premarital journey.

Marriage Mentors

How is your marriage? Good? Rough? Somewhere in between? Regardless of where you find your marriage, a Marriage Mentor couple can be a huge benefit to your relationship. They can walk alongside you on your marriage journey and provide guidance for what you are going through or simply be an encouragement. Just like a tour guide will help you on your vacation, a Marriage Mentor couple will help you in your relationship. If you would like to request a Marriage Mentor couple for your marriage, email Congregational Care to let us know.
