WE GROW COUPLES

GROWING AND NUTURING STRONG, HEALTHY, CHRIST-CENTERED MARRIAGES THAT LAST A LIFETIME

The Couples Ministry exists to prepare, establish, enrich, and restore couples in developing and maintaining Christ-Centered marriages. 

OUR MISSION

PREPARE

Couples Seriously Interested is our pre-married ministry for engaged and seriously dating couples.  CSI is designed to give couples an opportunity to learn a biblical understanding of marriage and evaluate if they should take next steps in their relationship. 

ESTABLISH

We offer several courses to help those who have been married less than five years understand God’s design for marriage and how that will require them to make adjustments in their daily lives.  Newly married couples connect with other couples and receive teaching on key topics such as God’s view of marriage, communication, roles and responsibilities, sex, and finances. 

ENRICH:  We want to enrich all marriages at Concord and offer several events/initiatives throughout the year to help couples intentionally and consistently build into their marriages.  We offer mentoring, GROW Groups for couples, marriage enrichment programs, and much more to keep marriages healthy, growing, and thriving.

RESTORE:  Re|Engage is our ministry to enrich and restore all marriages in our church and community. No matter where you’re at in your relationship, Re|Engage is a safe place to reignite, reconnect, or resurrect your marriage.

WINTER CLASSES FOR COUPLES

Re|Engage

 
Sundays, February 9 – May 31|12:00 - 1:30 pm | E201 and E203
Open to All Married Couples 
 
Would you rate your marriage as a 2 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 is a 16-week marriage enrichment program that helps couples move toward oneness and achieve more unity in their marriage.  Marriages in any condition can benefit, whether you are struggling to get along, your marriage is broken, or you simply want to grow closer together as a couple.  This 16-week experience includes a time of prayer, a teaching or testimony by a couple who has experienced victory in the midst of hard times, and small group time which follows a specified curriculum.
 
Cost for the class is $100 per couple. 

Conflict Resolution

 
Sundays, February 9 – March 15 | 12:00 – 1:00 pm | Growth Court/old bookstore
Open to All Married Couples 
 
You only win if you both win. Conflict is real and often comes without warning. But it doesn’t have to be a threat to your marriage. Couples who learn to weather the storms of conflict together find their love stronger on the other side of the fight. Because arguments come in all sizes, this six-week small-group study deals with handling conflicts both big and small. You’ll discuss how to:
 
  • Communicate effectively without being destructive
  • Pursue peace before, during, and after an argument
  • Lay off the insults and lay on the blessings
  • Become allies and fight together for the best in your relationship.
 
Cost for the class is $30 per couple. 

Five Love Languages

 
Fridays, February 21 – April 10| 7:00 – 9:00 pm | Oasis
Open to All Married Couples 
 
Gary Chapman says, of all the books about relationships, The Five Love Languages is a book that seems to withstand the test of time. You’ll often hear, “it saved my marriage” from followers, but even if your marriage doesn’t need saving, every partnership could benefit from the real-life stories and common sense approach that helps readers determine their – and their spouse’s – love language, which in turn, helps you better understand, and communicate with each other.
 
Cost for the class is $30.00 per couple.

Sundays, February 9 – April 26 | 12:00 – 2:00 pm |E211, E212, E213, E217, E218 & E219
