married coupleWe are committed to helping marriages thrive. Marriage is under attack. There is little in the world around us—our culture, the media, popular attitudes—that values and upholds marriage. These days, divorce is considered a minor issue, not a serious problem. So marriages fall apart and divorce rates are correspondingly high.

As a church, we want to swim against the prevailing tide.

Please click here to read the statement by our Shepherds on marriage and divorce.

As part of our commitment to marriages, we recommend the following resources:

Counseling - we have some wonderful counselors.  We will help you cover the financial costs associated with counseling, should that be necessary. And we will pray for you as you are in counseling.

Mentoring - we will help connect younger couples with older couples for mentoring in the art of strengthening marriage.

Classes offered at Downtown as needed:

Out-of-town workshops we recommend:

  • A New Beginning, offered by the Family Dynamics Institute - various cities
  • National Institute of Marriage, a partner of Focus on the Family - Branson, MO. They offer intensives with a counselor for marriages on the brink of divorce (2 to 6 days), as well as enrichment retreats to make good marriages even better.

Scholarships may be available for these different classes and workshops.  Contact the church office.
