Marriage


Marriage was the Lord’s creation for one man and one woman for one lifetime. CBC’s Marriage Ministry offers opportunities to embrace God’s plan to invest in your marriage and discover how to love your spouse in ways that will produce a marriage that lasts a lifetime.

Re|engage

Would you rate your marriage as a 2 or a 10? Maybe even a 0? You are not alone. Whether your marriage needs to be reignited, or is in need of a complete resurrection, re|engage is a safe place for couples to reconnect. re|engage is a marriage enrichment program, offering hope to marriages by helping couples move toward oneness through stories of grace, large group teaching and small group connections. Marriages in any condition can benefit from re|engage, whether you want to grow closer together as a couple or are struggling to get along.
Re|engage is an on-going, open ministry and we would love for you to join us any Tuesday night at 6:30 pm! For additional information, contact us at marriage@cbc.email or 210-253-5971. You can also register here.

Here is what CBC couples are saying about re|engage:

I am more in love with my wife now than the day I married her.” R.J.

Re|engage re-ignited our marriage, our relationship and our commitment to God. It has drawn out previously undiscussed issues in our marriage, which we were able to address for the very first time in 34 years of marriage.

It felt safe, encouraging and Christ centered from the first meeting” P.C

It was a great experience and we learned many new techniques to add to our marriage toolbox, along with practical ways to apply what we learned.” T.H.

Come see what God will do for your marriage through re|engage! Register here.

Marriage Preparation

For Seriously Dating or Engaged Couples

HEALTHY MARRIAGES START LONG BEFORE THE WEDDING

According to a survey completed by Scott Stanley in The Journal of Family Psychology, couples who participate in premarital preparation experience a 30% increase in marital success & fulfillment over those who don’t. Merge is CBC’s premarital discipleship ministry designed for engaged and seriously dating couples. It’s a chance to seek wisdom and receive counsel about marriage in a safe, fun, and authentic environment.

Merge addresses common questions and challenges from a biblical perspective. Class dynamics include: large group teaching, small group discussion with mentors, and weekly homework.

The Merge curriculum is Twogether in Texas Certified. Couples who complete the class will receive a premarital course certificate that, when presented to the court clerk, saves them $60 off the cost of their marriage license and waives the 72-hour waiting period.

Whether you go to CBC, attend another church or don’t go to church at all, you are welcome in Merge!

Merge 8 week classes are offered three times per year on Tuesdays, 6:30-8:30 pm. Registration is required. Please click here to register.

After completing Merge if you would like to have a CBC pastor perform your ceremony, please contact the pastor of your choice at least 2-3 months in advance of your wedding date. Click here for a list of pastors who officiate weddings. At this time, Lead Pastor Ed Newton is unavailable to preside over weddings. The officiant fee for weddings is $300, payable by cash or check made out to the pastor. Please discuss required travel with your pastor. Due to the large number of classes and events, CBC does not host weddings on property.

If you are unable to attend the 8 week Merge class, please email weddings@cbc.email or call 210-253-5971 for alternative premarital class options and any other questions.
