We believe that strong marriages are important. We believe that God can heal broken marriages and strengthen healthy ones. God’s power can transform and redeem relationships in a way that nothing else can. We want to work together to allow God to work on marriages and make them stronger.
To do this, we have broken down our marriage ministry into two parts:
Prepare – Preparing couples for Christ-centered lifelong marriages
Enrich & Repair – Proactively helping couples enrich and/or restore their marriages
Prepare (Pre-Marital Counseling)
To help you build a strong foundation for your marriage, we offer a six-session premarital counseling program in which engaged couples walk through curriculum and counseling with an older mentor couple. This is REQUIRED for any couples seeking to have a GFC pastor officiate their wedding, or get married at GFC. To learn more and register, please visit our Pre-marital Counseling page.
Enrich/Repair (re|engage group)
How would you rate your marriage on a scale from 1 to 10? A 5 or a 10? Maybe even a 0? You are not alone. Whether your marriage needs to be reignited or is in need of a complete resurrection, re|engage is a safe place for couples to reconnect. re|engage offers hope to marriages by helping couples move toward oneness through stories of grace, teaching and small groups. Join us for this 14-week group experience led by Tim and Cheryl Bowers as you work together through a specified curriculum.
We meet on Monday nights from 7:00-8:00pm with an optional worship time from 6:30-7:00 in Room 401 at the church. If you are interested in signing up or checking this out, you can sign up on the form below. This group will launch again in the Fall of 2014. Childcare is available upon request. Check in will be in the Children's wing beginning at 6:15pm.
