Marriage Enrichment Ministry
Second Baptist’s Marriage Enrichment Ministry is committed to supporting and equipping couples to have strong, Christ-centered marriages. The Marriage Enrichment Team works to promote marriage enrichment activities, small group Bible studies, marriage conferences, and community outreach events to improve and enrich marriage. We are committed to create a culture that remains focused on healthy marriages.
Counseling & Premarital Counseling
Whether you are getting ready for your wedding or perhaps you need an outside perspective to help you and your spouse get through a difficult time in your marriage, Second Baptist offers pre-marital counseling and marriage counseling provided by trained pastors, trained staff members, and professional counselors. All counseling is based in God’s Word and we hold to a strong belief that the Bible is our rule book for marriage. For more information about Second Baptist’s counseling opportunities, call the church office.
Marriage Mentor Couples
Have you been married for a while and are looking to improve your marriage? Are you about to be engaged or married? Are you newly married with questions but don’t know where to receive sound advice? Marriage Mentoring is when a more experienced couple purposefully invests themselves in another couple, enabling that couple to benefit from the life experiences of the ‘seasoned’ couple. Second Baptist matches trained marriage mentor couples with mentoree couples in this great marriage resource. Couples meet at their own discretion a few times a month or as their schedules allow. They are able to discuss marriage issues one on one with a caring couple as well as enjoy time with another couple devoted to marriage.
Second Baptist’s marriage enrichment activity coincides with Kids Night Out as a time for couples to connect in a one to two hour time frame. Each Couple Connection encompasses a different training theme or fun activity. These events provide an opportunity for couples to connect with each other as well as with other couples from the church and community.
Conferences, Retreats, & other Training Opportunities
Retreats are essential for couples to build on great marriages. Regional marriage enrichment getaways allow couples to get away and reconnect all at the same time. Second Baptist will provide information and sign-up opportunities for these events as they arise. The church also offers marriage conferences on location for couples to enrich their marriages right here at home. Other training opportunities to enrich marriage include Financial Peace University, men’s and women’s Bible studies, and Kids Night Out.
