Marriage Ministry

 Marriage requires work and this ministry exists to help couples be the light of Christ in a hurting culture,
and through Christ, grow to oneness in their marriage. (Gen 2:24)

Four primary areas of focus:

1. Prepare couples for marriage – for couples newly engaged we offer premarital marriage mentoring by. our trained mentor couples
2. Establish a strong foundation for new marriages – we offer multiple classes and groups to help young married couples establish a healthy marriage right from the start
3. Enrich existing marriages – to help enrich marriage through groups and marriage events.
4. Restore broken marriages


We encourage ALL couples at Colonial to go through re|engage at least once. Whether you rate your marriage a 2 or a 10 or you have been married for 2, 10 or more years, re|engage is a safe place to reconnect. Re|engage brings couples together to learn about God’s design for marriage and apply biblical principles for building a healthy relationship.
