A group for Blended (Step) Families. We meet to encourage each other in our unique challenges and explore various materials to strengthen our marriages and families.

We meet every other Sunday night at the Wexlers near the Apple Valley Campus. No childcare is provided, due to the sensitivity of topics covered.

Commit to six Friday evenings to receive the insight, applications and inspiration to come along side the Lord in transforming your marriage into everything you hoped it would be. Materials will be discussed at the first meeting. Childcare is offered for a fee.

Even when your home becomes an empty nest, we need to stay in community to keep our faith and marriage thriving. Join us every 2nd Sunday evening of the month (with separate date night another time during the month) to challenge and encourage each other in our spiritual walk and in our marriage. We will discuss what God is speaking to us in our SOAP or bible time and be accountable to dating our spouse while developing community together.
Sunday at 8:00 PM • Virtual
Looking to find community and connect with others in a similar stage of life? Join us we connect as couples with young kids. They say raising kids takes a village and who better than surround yourself with other believers who can encourage and speak truth into your life and marriage. Join us as we dig into different bible studies to grow in our knowledge of God's Word, parenting skills and marriage. Our group meets over zoom twice a month. We found last year when having to do our group over zoom that it actually worked well for families with little kids to find community in this way (just put your kids to bed and hop on your computer). We will be trying to meet a couple times a small group season in person for family fellowship times. Please have each spouse register for the group. Look forward to having you join us!

Building healthy marriages and families is essential for maximizing our potential in Christ. Starting March 1st, a new group will be launching at Crosstown campus that will focus on just that. The Marriage and Family group will meet each Wednesday in the lounge at Crosstown campus, and will have a simple format: Teaching, Testimony, and table discussion with your assigned table and leaders. The group will meet for 6 weeks, and will cover topics like "Healthy communication habits", "Why did God create marriage?", as well as other relevant topics to help strengthen your marriage and family. The goal for this ongoing group is to teach God’s plan for marriage, empower you with the skills to build a thriving marriage, and build relationships with other couples that can support your marriage. This group is being led by Chris and Cait Courneya, and Sam and Rachel Thompson. Childcare is not provided at this time. **Please register BOTH you and your spouse separately.

Join us for an 8 week small group as we study The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman! Whether you've been married for less than a year or over 10 years, there's something for you in this study as we grow in our knowledge of how to show love to our spouses in the way they best receive it and most need it. This study has two portions: One that happens each night that we meet, and another that happens on your own and with your spouse between weekly gatherings by working through some readings and reflections. This is a study where you'll truly get out of it what you put into it. We love kids, but unfortunately don't have adequate space to host them in addition to the adults in our group. Allergy Notice: This small group is hosted in our pet-friendly home, however they are shut away during group. Questions? Please reach out! You can text us at: Michael - (612) 865-2406 Britta - (952) 300-1605
