Marriage Ministry

We believe that First Christian Church has one of the best marriage ministries in the Springfield area built with a traditional understanding of Holy Matrimony between a man and woman. 

Couples mentoring with our Senior Pastor will be given access to “Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts” (SYMBIS) prior to their wedding. Rev. Rick Irwin is a trained facilitator for this program and will be able to share valuable online assessments and other materials at no additional costs.  Some weddings are assigned to our Associate Pastor, Rev. Tracy Armstrong,  and she too will need to visit and share relevant resources with couples. This preparation is our commitment to both a wonderful wedding day and an enduring marriage. We invite you to visit any Sunday to enjoy worship, meet our Pastors and to experience our beautiful Sanctuary. As always we pray that every couple will nurture a relationship with God through a church and we are exceedingly grateful when we can fill that need as well. 

*Note: any variations to the marriage ministry provisions may be discussed with or approved by the Senior Minister. Some decisions may need full Board approval.
