FiT (Families in Training)

fitwebgraphic

FiT is our ministry to young families at STBC. This active group includes newly married couples without children through families with children in upper elementary school. We'd love to have you join us. For more information, contact FiT Leaders


 Marriage Moment

When you find yourself in a disagreement with your spouse, remember in that moment, that he or she is NOT your enemy.  Your struggle is NOT against the flesh and blood life partner in front of you. The real enemy is satan,  seeking to destroy your witness through disunity in your marriage if he can. Check out these verses to help you maintain a spiritual perspective of your marriage, even when you disagree!

Take a moment to read
I Peter 5:8 and Eph 5:22 - 6:18!

We are here for you! Call, email or stop on by!
