Family Ministry

Welcome to Married Life

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24

God really does have a perfect design for marriage. The problem is that many couples do not understand how an effective marriage works or simply do not put the effort into making their marriage successful.

The Fellowship’s Married Life Ministry

We provide opportunities and resources for couples to both understand God’s plan for marriage and help them live into it. We offer marriage groups, blogs, the great-date experience, counseling and prayer to encourage you along your marriage journey.

Contact Debbie Dowdell for more information.

Training families to become beacons in their communities

Families – whether a family of one, two or more – are the core of a strong spiritual life. God wants families to be the most influential unit of love in a community, an example that leads our community to Christ.

Our desire at The Fellowship is to strengthen the family by connecting families with each other and with God. We help build strong marriages between husbands and wives, equip parents to teach and train their children spiritually, and encourage children to honor and obey their parents.

Whether you are a family of one, a married couple, parents or grandparents, we believe God is calling you to partner with us to love our community and leave a spiritual legacy for the next generation.

Support for Hurried Parents

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:6-9

Parenting is no easy task: running to extracurricular activities, trying to get them to truly talk to you, cooking, cleaning, working, bonding time, and then, building and leaving a spiritual legacy for your children. While parenting can bring the greatest joy … it can also bring the greatest struggles.

At The Fellowship, parents are called upon to be their child’s spiritual leaders, and we work hard to equip each parent to do so. We offer LIFE groups and LIFE University classes for parents to meet you right where you are in the parenting process.

Parent Date Night

Take time to invest in your marriage ... and we will provide excellent childcare for the kids. This is a great time to reconnect after a long week.
