strengthening families

Marriage & Family Ministry

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.

Marriage Core

Marriage CORE enrichment groups provide an opportunity for couples to strengthen their marriage through discussing core aspects of marriage like communication, conflict resolution, trust and forgiveness. The small group experience helps each couple focus on areas of improvement and celebrate areas of success within their marriage. The Marriage CORE groups are led by mentor couples who have been married for more than 20 years. Their transparency and experience encourage couples to openly discuss each week’s marriage topic.

Marriage foundation Class

First McKinney has launched a new 12-month class focused on Nearly/Newly-Weds! Every marriage is important, and we want to help every new couple establish a Christ-centered foundation in their first years of marriage. We allow couples to register for each quarter’s new launch date, so that all new couples can begin the class together, and at the right time, to avoid playing “catch up” on the current topic or series. Leaders will contact you to give more class details and start dates for each quarter session.
MARRIAGE FOUNDATION class meets Sundays, at 10:45am in Room 2110.
