Marriage and Family


Our vision is to disciple couples one at a time, to experience, and then pass on Christ’s transforming power in their marriage and family.

Marriage-&-Family-Logo-TransparentWe know that strong marriages are the foundation of a strong family. Strong families are the foundation of a strong church and community.

First Friends Church is committed to encouraging and equipping couples to build strong marriages through the following ministries:

  • Premarital Classes & Mentoring
  • Connect Groups
  • Marriage Retreat
  • Family Events
