Marriage Ministry

Our Model for Marriage

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery-but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." Ephesians 5:31-33 (NIV)
The characteristics that define the relationship between Christ and the church are the same characteristics that lay the foundation for a successful union between a husband and a wife. 


RWWC Marriage Ministry Events

Emotional safety is important for our mental health and critically important for a marriage. Knowing that you are loved, supported and understood creates a favorable environment where people can flourish and become their best selves. When people are at their best, they tend to treat others well.

This year the focus of our marriage ministry is creating and sustaining a safe marriage. With mental and emotional health issues becoming more at the forefront of our national conversation, we wanted to spend some time examining, from a biblical and psychological perspective, what it looks like to be in a safe relationship, how to recognize unsafe patterns, and how to build safety into your relationship. 

2020 Theme: The Safe Marriage

Pastor’s Darren and Kim Carter will present in four lessons:

  • Safe Self: March 13th  Allowing and celebrating mutual authenticity in your marriage

  • Safe Speak: June 12th Establishing safe expression in marriage

  • Safe Sex: September 11th Creating safe sex and intimacy in your marriage 

  • Safe Cents: December 4th Creating financial safety in your marriage 

We are excited to reconnect with our friends at RWWC and excited about the healing that will take place in marriages. If you would like to receive the Evites for these events, please email to be added to the email list.
