Scripture tells us in Genesis 2:24, "Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."
This union is the first and most sacred human relationship. As such, family is a vital component of a healthy church, with marriage being the foundation of the home. The marriage ministry at Rockwall Friendship Baptist Church provides a place for couples to share experiences, triumphs, and challenges. Together, we explore the biblical principles of God's design for marriage with married and engaged couples meeting for small groups to discuss issues related to marriage such as individual expectations, boundaries, and goals, among many others.
Engaged couples are encouraged to join in our marriage ministry as well. Preparing for marriage is essential and a great way to learn is to follow the example of those who are already married. By preparing for marriage and gaining a firm foundation, you will find your upcoming marriage more fulfilling.
One of the exciting opportunities we offer is the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment, which helps identify areas of strength in your marriage or relationship that need growth. Couples are then paired with a certified coach to develop a plan to improve and grow.
Check out our calendar for upcoming events and classes. No matter how long you've been married, you'll enjoy learning and applying these principles from God's Word.
