Marriage Community Groups

At SBC, we think it is important for people to get real with one another. We believe the best way to do this is by being part of a smaller community within the larger congregation. SBC’s groups and workshops  are communities where people can build Christ-centered friendships for encouragement and support and grow in their relationship with the Lord!

Young Married Group
This group is for young married couples. We study books of the Bible and learn and share basic tools for growing in spiritual disciplines. We meet the first and third Mondays of the month.

We believe in the sacredness of marriage as described throughout the Bible, and we are committed to providing a biblical foundation for each marriage.

  • All relationships take vision, intentional effort and the right tools to stay healthy and grow. These can be fostered through intentional quality time together in prayer and focused effort on specific areas of the relationship that a couple agrees upon. With literally thousands of books available on the topic of relationships, we’ve tried to narrow the field to some that the leaders in the Marriage Ministry have found helpful over the years. The listings here are those that we believe address each subject best. Recommended Reading.
