Latham Marriage Ministry

Our desire is to help equip married couples with a God-honoring marriage that endures for a lifetime. Every marriage is unique, and each experiences its own joys and challenges.  No matter what unexpected behaviors, expectations, or circumstances you find in your marriage, we are here to offer you support.

Marriage Ministry Group

One of the ways we equip couples is through our marriage ministry group, which has several sessions throughout the year.  This group gathers for a brief large group teaching, then breaks off into smaller discussion groups where couples can confidentially share and support each other.  You can find out more information about this group’s current study and register here.

Prepare and Enrich

Whether you are looking to strengthen your marriage or are currently experiencing some challenges you want to work through, this marriage assessment tool may be right for you! Prepare and Enrich helps couples gain a deeper understanding of dynamics, personality, stress and strength, and growth areas within your marriage.  It costs $35 per couple, but our certified facilitators would be more than happy to meet individually with couples to utilize this tool.  If you would like to get connected with one of our certified facilitators and go through Prepare and Enrich with them, email Rachel Rice at .

Affair Recovery

For those looking to heal from the pain of an affair and betrayal, Affair Recovery is a resource that we recommend.  You can find more information about them directly at their website.  Also, you can connect with their YouTube channel here.
