About our Marriage Ministry Program

Our desire is to build healthy marriages and help you deepen your relationship in Christ as an extension of the BCC vision to "know Christ and make Him known" in our community. 


The Purpose of the BCC Marriage Ministry is to:

  • Prepare couples for lifelong vitalized marriage
  • Strengthen and enrich existing marriages
  • Restore troubled marriages to health


To accomplish our purpose, BCC has an active ministry to support dating, engaged, and married couples. We offer a number of activities including hosting regular marriage and family related classes as part of our Sunday studies, conducting an annual marriage weekend seminar, promoting other selected marriage enrichment activities in the community, and utilizing experienced mentor couples to help others through different stages in married life including marriage preparation and help for struggling couples.   


Keep a lookout for information about marriage classes and related opportunities in the church bulletin, the BCC eNews, and here on our web site.


For additional information about our activities for marriage preparation, or for help if you are struggling in your marriage, please contact us at marriage@burkecommunity.com.


We desire to help build and sustain strong, biblical marriages for a lifetime, so do not hesitate to contact us!

    Save the date for this boot scooting marriage dance!  Plan to join us as we transform the Worship Center into a relationship enriching, good ol, country dinin', dancing', & romancen' good time.  This promises to be a fun opportunity to enjoy and celebrate our spouses and honor our marriages, which are true blessings from God.  Dating couples please join us!  More info to come.

  • Great date night        (just in case you missed the last one)

    Wow, we had a tremendous response to handing out boxes at our Great Date Night event in February.  With over 250 couples picking up the boxes, sacks, and date night instructions, we totally ran out of supplies.  In case you missed it, we have attached the date night instructions HERE for you to download and enjoy.   


    You may have missed out on some of the goodies in the boxes, but you can still enjoy a wonderful time by downloading the document and following the fun and engaging ideas in it.  Marriage has enough questions.  So, get clear – because clarity leads to connection.  This great date is a super easy way to have fun and connect with your loved one.   Just take along some pens and a little bit of paper, because as part of your fun date you will write a short note to open next year.  You may also want to bring along an envelope or something similar to hold your notes until then.

     

    In case you are wondering, this is for every couple - dating couples, newly marrieds, couples with kids, couples without kids, empty nesters, couples in crisis - because every couple needs to have some serious fun.  So, download the Great Date Night flyer by clicking HERE and go enjoy some special time with your loved one this week!
