Marriage

YOUR MARRIAGE MATTERS TO GOD!AND TO US!

We have an army of dedicated volunteers at each campus ready to come alongside you.

You’re Engaged – Now What?

God himself conducted the first wedding in the Garden. No bridesmaids, no best man, no rehearsal dinner. Today it’s a bit more, well, complicated. To get you started, we offer a six-month marriage preparation program that all couples must complete to be married by one of our Kensington pastors.

If you’re a current regular attender at Kensington and wish to obtain an information packet outlining our marriage preparation process, please contact stephanie.valentine@kensingtonchurch.org for our Michigan campuses or bill.milot@kensingtonchurch.org for our Orlando campus.

NEED HELP?

Marriages can hit some pretty bumpy roads. And for some of us, those bumps can feel like canyons. Just know this: there is hope! Studies show that couples who hang in there and stay married are happier than they ever thought possible five years later. The other good news is this: you have others who care about you and your spouse… and desire to help you through these bumps and hurdles. Because your marriage matters to God (and to us!), we have an army of dedicated volunteers at each campus ready to come alongside you, listen to what’s going on, and provide some good light- even when things feel very dark. if you’re concerned about your marriage, have questions, or just need to talk to someone, please contact one of our Campus Marriage Teams listed below. Someone will get back to you soon:

HELP OTHERS

Help Marriages at Your Campus — Be a Mentor

For couples who are engaged, newly married, or need some help through a tough season, having another couple in their life to provide biblical guidance, share advice, and listen prayerfully is a priceless advantage. To be a mentor, you don’t need to have all the answers (training is provided) – but you do need to have been married for at least 5 years. If you’re excited about this initiative and want to volunteer at your campus, please visit our Serve page and select your Campus and then Marriage as your area of interest.

Be a Small Group Leader

Small groups are communities of people in the same life-stage who come together to support each other, grow spiritually, and develop lasting relationships. They’re a great way to connect folks to God and each other – but we need both new and experienced leaders to host!

Financial Stewardship Ministry

Finances is one of the key issues that plague marriages. If you’re like most Americans and have too much month left at the end of the money, join us to learn biblical truths about how to manage money as a couple, in God’s way. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, you will learn biblically-based practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, reduce marital squabbles and much more! Classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for nine weeks. For a current class schedule and more info visit kensingtonfpu.org.
