Married Life

Welcome to the FPC Married Life web page. We believe Christian marriage is a unique relationship created by God to be a witness to the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is vital that Christians who are married view their relationship with the utmost care and attention. FPC's marriage ministry is designed to help strengthen couples' relationship with God and one another. We are committed to providing appropriate resources to help, encourage, challenge and support married couples at FPC.

Couples Night Out

Next seminar:
Sat  |  Oct 22  |  5-8pm  |  LC 181

Join us for a time of fun and fellowship as we hear from Pastor Jon Crantz on the importance of honesty and communication in a marriage relationship. Drop your kids off, listen to a lecture and then head off campus to enjoy time with your spouse, answering questions about the speaker’s content. Pick your kids back up at 7:30pm. Contact kdaly@fpchouston.org to register. Childcare is for infant through Kindergarten aged children.

Couples Night Out is offered every quarter. It is our hope that this ministry will help couples deepen their relationship, improve in conflict resolution and communication, and come to a greater understanding of the uniqueness of Christian marriage.

Mentoring

This portion of the ministry will focus on couple to couple relationships, encouraging couples who want to discuss marriage issues within a smaller, more confidential relationship.  Mentor couples will bring with them many years of married life and will provide an encouraging, open and honest setting for discussion and encouragement.

Please contact at Jon Crantz at jcrantz@fpchouston.org for more information.

 


 

Counseling Services

Married couples frequently experience challenges in their relationship, and at times need outside help to  get them back on track.  We offer confidential, pastoral counseling with the option of further, professional counseling as needed. 

Please contact Pastor Jon Crantz at jcrantz@fpchouston.org for more information.
