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.
