Marriage Groups

Whether you want to improve a good marriage or are looking for hope and healing for a troubled relationship, this 12-week group is a safe place to take your marriage where you want it to go. The Intimate Encounters workbook is a practical guide to discovering the secrets of a really great marriage. This group will give you the tools to grow in your intimacy, friendship and your relationship with Jesus



Blended Families Connect Group

Blended families are complicated. Really complicated. We get it. Come and join a group of people who are right there with you (or have been where you are) and want to share biblical and practical encouragement. We’ll be using Ron Deal’s The Smart Step Family materials to springboard conversation and gain insights. Walk away from this Connect Group with new friends, new skills, and an appreciation for the gift of your new family!



Passion Pursuit Connect Group

This is an 11 week Bible study for women about pursuing passion in marriage. Passion Pursuit uses God’s word to speak openly about sex being intimate, passionate, holy – satisfying far beyond what the world can even image. By digging deeper into the Bible, Passion Pursuit not only urges women to pursue passion, but details how God has given them permission to do just that. This bold study is for women who are married or marriage minded.
