Upcoming Events

 

We enjoyed another great M&M date night for couples at CFBC. Couples enjoyed dinner and fellowship together and were encouraged in navigating the winds of marriage – knowing that all of our marriages have seasons of a calm, a still breeze and a storm. Sharing the journey with friends who are navigating the same waters as you creates a community that is deep and valuable. We hope you will join us for our next date night! Here are a few pictures of August 24.

A video Bible study by bestselling author Gary Thomas draws on personal stories and teachings from the Bible to show how cherishing can have a power effect on marriage. Learning to truly cherish each other turns a marriage from an obligation to a delight. It lifts marriage above a commitment to a precious priority.  Cherish is the melody that makes a marriage sing.

Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply.  What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.
