“But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one.” Mark 10:6-8

Strengthening marriages is an emphasis of OC’s leadership.

Here’s a message to our family from the Shepherds: “We pray constantly for marriages, our homes and for our children. Our sincere desire for all of us is to experience godly relationships and to commit to building up and protecting your home. Together, we can strengthen our marriages, fight for our marriages, even mourn the failure of our marriages in a way that honors God and demonstrates the difference Jesus makes in our lives.”

OC provides:

  • preparation classes for couples who are engaged (or are contemplating marriage) through our “MERGE” seminar each spring
  • marriage enrichment opportunities during Sunday morning class offerings for couples of any age and station in life
  • opportunities to match young couples with more experienced couples through our marriage mentoring program
  • a couple’s retreat or a marriage enrichment seminar each February.

For couples requiring more personal assistance for their marriage, we provide professional counseling assistance through our own on-site marriage and family therapist, as well as referrals to other professional counselors in the Nashville area.

How to Get Involved

Couples are needed for marriage mentoring, teaching, and assisting with classes and special events.

Time commitment: Bible classes are an hour weekly, MERGE is a weekend seminar in the spring, and assisting with an event depends on the task accepted. Mentoring is typically a monthly or bi-monthly meeting with another couple.
