Becoming a community of Authentic Christ followers

compelled to change our world.

The goal of Friends Married Life is to
Encourage couples to Connect with Christ and His Church;
Equip them with the tools necessary build strong marriages and
Empower them to serve others.

“I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself. In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:2-3 NLT


Friends Church Married Life Ministry is committed to encouraging married couples to follow Jesus Christ in every area of their lives. The key to a healthy family is a healthy marriage. Children learn the substance of our faith and the value of marriage from their parents. They also gain a sense of security and their own self worth. So whether you are seriously dating, engaged, newly married, seasoned with many blessed years or feeling a bit fried from the journey, your marital health is important to us. It is our sincere belief that the healthy couple is a connected couple. Through pre-marital classes, marriage mentoring, Life Groups, counseling and special events throughout the year, the married Life Team is committed to helping you to have a strong marriage.
 

We are excited you took the time to investigate the Married Life ministry here at Friends and encourage you to take a next step and Get In.
