Ministry to Families

The Marriage and Family Ministry is first of all focused on strengthening and restoring marriages, because strong marriages are the foundation of healthy families, churches and societies.  This ministry is also focused on equipping and encouraging parents to raise their children to become adults who follow Jesus with their whole heart, soul, mind, and strength.  It is our desire to provide the resources, encouragement, and more to give everyone the best opportunity to have the family legacy that God intended.  Let us know if we can ever be a support, encouragement or resource for your marriage and family.

Marriage Mentoring

Here at Christ United, we are fighting to restore families, and the front line of that fight is the marriage.  Please join us in this fight by fighting for your own marriage and investing time, love and wisdom into other marriages.  I am excited to tell you about three of the strategies that we have for restoring marriages.  Please pray about investing in your own marriage and/or leading others through this ministry. The battle for marriage and family is a fight we cannot afford to lose.  Please join us through prayer, joining a group, leading, or all of the above.

Marriage Enrichment

A Weekend to Remember...Focus, Connect, & Discover

Jobs, kids, activities, errands and life has a way of overwhelming a marriage. Before you know it, other things are taking priority above the most important thing; your spouse and family. FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember®marriage getaway is your chance to make a change. 

The Weekend to Remember getaway is not a large counseling session, and you will not be asked to participate in small groups. Rather, you will receive marriage-changing principles that you can take home and apply to your daily lives that will strengthen your marriage. If you are interested in attending and would like to review what to expect and find a GetAway Date that would work for your schedule click the on the link below.
