Turning people into fully devoted followers of Jesus

Healthy Marriages

Our marriage is a precious gift from God. Our church has a vision for building and strengthening healthy, Christ-centered marriages in our community.

“They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” – Jeremiah 17:8

We aim to do this by:

  • Providing digital/physical marriage resources, teaching, training and conferences
  • Establishing a community of mentor/mentee relationships
  • Encouraging relationship building and joyful fellowship through marriage-centered activities and events

Please check this page for upcoming ministry activities!

Prepare Pre-Marital Sessions (Winter/Spring): Getting married soon? We invite newly engaged couples to our pre-marital conversation based on research from Prepare-Enrich Canada. Pastor Brandon helps couples discuss key topics to have a successful marriage in a mix of group and individual couple sessions. Contact Pastor Brandon for more information!
