What we believe about marriage:

At Gloria Dei, our Marriage Ministry seeks to walk with husband and wife, through all the stages of a marriage relationship by equipping couples from the beginning of their relationship, providing opportunities for continued growth as a husband and wife, and bringing Christ’s mercy and grace into the brokenness couples experience. So, whether you are engaged, struggling in your relationship, or have been joyfully married 50+ years, there is opportunity for you and your spouse in the Marriage Ministry of Gloria Dei.

For a deeper look into our beliefs concerning marriage, have a look at the 4-week sermon series, "What Builds Us Up", listed below.

Marriage Ministry Opportunities

Date Night Events:

Join us for an evening of fun and adventure at one of our Date Night Events. Interact with your spouse in an exciting way, while also connecting with other couples. These evenings are designed to be inexpensive, fun, and encourage you and your spouse to enjoy the relationship God has given you! These are great for couples of all relationship stages. 


"Center Your Marriage" - Marriage Retreat Weekend - POSTPONED

We will be rescheduling the Marriage Retreat for a date that is TBD.  If you have any questions, please contact Andee Hasty.

Is your marriage stuck?  Do you feel like you've grown complacent in your relationship and you're maintaining status quo?  Or maybe you feel like God is pulling you forward as a couple, but you're not sure where.

Gloria Dei's Summer 2018 Marriage Retreat is the opportunity for you and your spouse to dive into God's purpose in your marriage, His desire for you to move forward together, and the opportunity to practically push your relationship forward.

Cost: $35/couple.  Includes Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and childcare (ages 6 weeks to 4th grade)!


Marriage Workshop:

Our marriage workshops are designed for you and your spouse to spend time and effort on a specific area of your marriage. Topics vary from workshop to workshop, but engaged and married couples of all ages are encouraged to attend.

Click here for materials from November's workshop: "Hope in the Present" to connect and grow with your spouse at home.

Marriage Mentor Couples:

We have couples willing to walk beside you in the first years of your marriage relationship as you navigate through the many life and relationship changes that take place. Our Marriage Mentor Couples are here to love and support you as you begin your life together in the truth and promise of Jesus Christ.


Couples' Pastoral Counseling:

No marriage relationship is perfect, but God is working in each and every situation. If you and your spouse are struggling to communicate, forgive, or you just need somebody help facilitate your conversation, please contact the church office, 281-333-4535, and the volunteer will connect you with one of our pastors.
