Premarital Counseling

Premarital groups offer tools for couples to build lifetime foundations for Christ-centered relationships. Real Life also offers premarital counseling on an as-needed basis through various pastors.

Marriage Counseling

Every relationship needs a tune-up periodically to help us stay focused on future direction and a biblical paradigm. Every marriage takes work and attention to relational needs that we take for granted. Therefore, we offer marital direction and encouragement through counseling by appointment.

Adult Mentoring

Our society is highly mobile, giving younger adults less opportunity to learn positive relationship models from their parents and grandparents. Marriage mentoring allows mature, experienced couples to encourage and guide younger marriages.

Adult couples are training to mentor others in the art of marriage. There are openings for couples to be mentored by those who are seasoned in a healthy marriage.

Marriage Groups

The marriage ministry offers an evening group that functions like a CARE Group, but specifically targets marriage topics for discussion. These groups nurture a deep, relational environment and promote stability in marriage encounters. To learn more about these groups, please contact Charlie Couch.

FamilyLife’s Art of Parenting

DivorceCare

DivorceCare is a 13-week course on how to recover from the trauma of divorce. We encourage you to come and share your experience with others who have gone through the same thing, and encourage each other to grow and learn to move forward together. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone. For more information, contact Charlie Couch.



Love & Respect

What is Love & Respect? We believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict, a husband most often reacts when feeling disrespected and a wife reacts when feeling unloved. We asked 7,000 people this question: When you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected? 83% of the men said “disrespected” and 72% of the women said “unloved.” Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue!

Achieve a brand new level of intimacy as you learn to stop the Crazy Cycle of conflict, initiate the Energizing Cycle of change, and enjoy the Rewarded Cycle of new passion.
