Marriage is the first institution created by God and the only one that He created before the Fall. He goes so far as to declare that marriage, when rightly lived out, is a reflection of Christ’s relationship with the church. With such an important testimony to give, it is only right that the church itself invest all we can to ensure that the marriages of the church are strong and successful.
To that end, in addition to the faithful preaching of God’s Word on Sunday mornings, we provide regular meetings throughout the year focused directly on the topic of marriage. They are available primarily to married and engaged couples, though often the whole church is invited to attend.
Married Couples Meetings
Tuesday, October 17, 2017, 7:30pm The Big Picture: Beholding Marriage From Beginning to End
Tuesday, March 6, 2018, 7:30pm The Big Picture: Running the Race of Marriage Well
One of the over-arching themes of the Bible is the marriage of God to His people. God uses this metaphor beginning in Genesis and carried all the way through the book of Revelation. This is the big picture behind the institution of marriage. Yet, the individual challenges we face have a way of distracting us from the glorious big picture God presents. The reduced picture that is left also often results in reduced faith, hope, and love.
On October 17 and March 6, we will be gathering for The Big Picture, where we will not only learn the over-arching theme of marriage in the Scriptures, but we will also learn how to reconnect our individual marriages with God's big picture. Join us and discover what God may have in store for your marriage and find fresh hope and vision for a new season of marital success.
Married Couples Sermons
As we believe in the power of God's preached Word, we have a number of contexts where the Bible is preached toward the topic of marriage. Below are two separate contexts. First, our Married Couples meetings are held several times per year. There, practical and biblical teaching is provided to equip and strengthen the marriages of our church. Second, from time to time, we will take a Sunday sermon and commit it to this topic. Some selected sermons from both contexts are included below. We pray they both edify and equip you. If you are interested in more, then check our Media Library, or click the link under each context.
