Marriage & Family

Marriage & Family

The Marriage & Family Ministry of First McKinney is committed to restoring and
strengthening families by equipping couples to build their homes according to God’s
blueprints. God created the family as the primary institution to train the next generation.
God gives parents direct responsibility to train children in spiritual matters and God
designed the church to provide support in this important task.

Because we know that the foundation of the home is the marriage relationship, we focus
on building restored and enriched marriages which glorify God and create unified
families, thriving children, stronger churches and healthier communities. We are
passionate about investing in marriages and offering resources and support for parents
as they model for their children what it means to live and love like Jesus every day. Our
desire is to glorify God by building strong marriages and godly families in Christ.

We recognize that not everyone at First McKinney is in a family with children at home.
Our church is a beautiful mix of generations including young and old, single and
married, and newlyweds and empty nesters. We desire to help each individual at every
season of life to live and love like Jesus. However, at First McKinney, we prioritize
ministries to children and youth as well as resources to equip parents to teach their
children spiritual truths. Because Jesus gave every disciple the command to “let the little
children come to me,” we all have a stake in leading the next generation. Regardless of
where this season of life finds you, we hope that you will feel like you belong to the First
McKinney family-- a group of imperfect people-- saved by grace and seeking each day to
live and love like Jesus.
