Grace Marriage

Do you want a better marriage? Do you want to grow in enjoyment of one another? Do you want to protect your marriage? Do you want to launch your marriage out of a stagnant pattern into a growth pattern? Do you want to get on the same page as your spouse so you can be more effective?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, join a Grace Marriage coaching group at FBC!

FBC is a host site for Grace Marriage coaching groups. This is a ministry that desires to proactively protect and grow marriages. Marriage is foundational to the success of a family, church, and community. However, the busyness and demands of life make it difficult to be intentional. In Grace Marriage coaching, a couple makes a proactive effort to protect and grow their marriage by investing one day each quarter of the year to take a big picture look at their life and marriage. When a couple puts their marriage under the grace of Christ and intentionally works on it, it will be transformed into a more enjoyable and God-glorifying union.

Launch Sunday – November 12th (Both Services)
  • Paul and Wesley will introduce the congregation to the need and opportunity for this ministry at FBC. Details of how to be involved will be discussed during this time.

Info/Registration booth available after each service (November 12, 19, & 26). Registration also available at the bottom of this page.
