Building a strong marriage doesn’t happen by accident or default. Even as a well-built house must first have carefully designed blueprints, a strong foundation, and a competent builder, even so, a strong marriage can only be the product of the blueprint of the Bible, the foundation of Jesus Christ, and the daily guiding of God’s Holy Spirit. The classes and activities of the couples department will help to build and strengthen your marriage and will teach the proven Bible principles for making your marriage a life-long and joyful relationship.


You will have the opportunity to attend a Christian Marriage Retreat that is sure to help build and strengthen the most important human relationship in life - your marriage. Every February we head to a resort for practical sessions and messages from guest speakers and from Pastor Chappell. This is always an encouraging and helpful time for married couples of all ages.
