Dating and Marriage
Commitment – God’s way
We're in love, so now what?
Christ Chapel offers plenty of opportunities to help you discover what God says about love, dating and biblical marriage through our premarital and marriage ministries, starting with AVENEW.
Whether you’re newly married, engaged, or almost there — this is a great place to discover God’s mission for your relationship and learn practical ways to love and honor one another through life’s highs and lows. Ready to get on the same path?
GET ON THE SAME PATH!
AVENEW is designed to get you and your significant other on the same path in your relationship. We’ve identified 12 major areas of life that collide when two imperfect people become one, and we believe that when you identify and discuss these in the context of biblical community, you’ll be ready to face the highs and lows together! Spend 12 sessions investing in your relationship and find an AVENEW that’s right for you at the button below. The cost of the program is $50 per couple.
The program pairs you with a mentor couple that’s been married for at least 15 years and has a healthy, godly marriage. (Note: We didn’t say perfect. No perfect couples here.) You’ll meet together for six sessions that last 2-3 hours each. The cost of the program is $90. Please submit Marriage Mentoring requests no sooner than three to five months prior to wedding date.

Let’s get real. How would you really rate your marriage?
Re|engage offers hope to marriages by helping couples move toward oneness through stories of grace, teaching and small groups. Whether you would rate your marriage as a two or 10, whether you are in need of serious help or looking to strengthen from a good to great marriage, there is a place for you at re|engage.
Re|engage groups will go through a 14-week curriculum consisting of recorded teachings and testimonies, a workbook and at home discussions with your spouse. The workbook will be done on your own during the week and the teachings/testimonies will be LIVE via zoom on Sunday evenings at 5 p.m. The small groups will meet via Zoom once a week. The time for these meetings will be determined based on what works best for the couples in each group.
