Hope's Marriage & Family Ministry

The Marriage & Family Ministry at Hope is focused on connecting one another to build friendships and a supportive community where couples and families grow strong in their marriage, their relationships and their walk with God. 

Counseling for Couples, Mentors for Marriage, & More

We want families to feel a sense That’s why we offer a wide variety of classes, events and resources for everyone to get plugged in! Hope also offers FREE marriage coaching to help you navigate the hardships of married life. Our mentors don’t have perfect marriages, but they are willing to walk alongside you and your spouse, using their experience to guide you along the way. An even closer relationship is closer than you think.

Small Groups

Small Groups at Hope are comprised of loving people committed to sharing their faith and their lives together in a comfortable and safe environment. No two small groups are the same, making each group unique to the people in your circle. No matter where you may be on your faith journey, having close relationships with others can and will be beneficial. The uniqueness of Sermon Based Small Groups include (1) a small group of people who (2) meet weekly (3) to discuss the previous week’s sermon (and other interests of life). Participants should have listened to the sermon and read through the Sermon Study Guide before attending their weekly meeting.

Hope's Marriage & Family Ministry strives to help couples grow closer together in thier marriage while growing closer in their walk with Christ. One of the ways we do that is with our Date Night Kits that are created for our annual marriage event, Marriage Tonight. Each of our previous Date Night Kits are now available for you and your spouse to use for weekly date nights. We hope this free resource is helpful and beneficial to you and your marriage.
