Marriage & Family Focused Groups


Young Marrieds & Engaged

Location: Maple Bay | Two Thursdays per Month | Time: 7pm-9pm

*NEW* A young married & engaged couples group led by empty-nesters who love this age group. This group is designed to support, encourage and provide a healthy and close-knit community during these early years of marriage. “Popcorn and a Movie”! This group will meet every other week for popcorn and occasional special dinner nights followed by a teaching video. The video series we’ll be undertaking is “Love That Lasts”, a variety of marriage related topics taught by a number of different leadership couples. Childcare: The plan is that group members would line-up a babysitter after early “newborn” age (approx.)


Kouwenbergs | Family Focus

Location: North Cowichan | Weekly on Tuesdays | Start Time: 5:30pm

*NEW – Tentatively Full* This is a mixed group for everyone. We will start our evenings off as the complete family for some fellowship around a potluck dinner. Join our group as we all navigate the busyness of life while seeking to engage in rich relationship with others. We hope to grow closer to God and each other as we pursue Christ together. Our first study will be on Andy Stanley’s book “Enemies of The Heart”. Childcare: Kids are welcome to gather downstairs to do something quietly during the adult group time.


Kennedys | Couples Approaching Pre-Teen or in early Teen Life Stage

Location: Crofton | 3 Tuesdays per Month | Start Time: 6:45pm

*NEW* Do you have a pre-teen/early-teen in your family or approaching that life stage? The focus of our group is to strengthen our relationship with God, while at the same time build some stronger connections with others around the same life stage. Once a month we will gather all together with our kids for a potluck/games social and the other two times a month just as couples. Our first video series will be “Laugh Your Way to a Healthy Marriage” by Mark Gungor. “Laugh Your Way” helps couples deal with tough issues in a way that is fun and non-threatening. Couples will laugh, learn and be able to make real positive changes to their marriage. Childcare: Please arrange for a baby-sitter
