Marriage is important to us at Eastside.
That’s why we have partnered with MarriedPeople.org and FamilyLife to create a Marriage Ministry at Eastside that will help us equip and support the marriages in our church and community.
Whether you are engaged, newly married, married with children, or empty nesters, you have a place in our Marriage Ministry!
From Date Nights to Large Group events, Small Groups to MarriedPeople podcasts and Monthly Newsletters, our hope is that you will be encouraged, challenged, and supported in your marriage.
All content produced by MarriedPeople have these four Core Habits woven into it:
- Have Serious Fun
- Love and Respect
- Love God First
- Practice Your Promise

Marriage Mentorship through FamilyLife.
Why Marriage Mentoring?
- Improves marriage satisfaction
- Reduces divorce
- Benefits both mentors and mentees
- Addresses common challenges in marriage
How does Marriage Mentoring work?
FamilyLife Marriage Mentoring involves a one-year commitment for both mentor and mentee couples.
Couples commit to meet a minimum of 10x over the course of a year.
Both couples will be equipped with a Mentoring Conversation Guide that focuses on 14 crucial topics such as Gratitude, Showing love, Parenting, Emotional & Physical Intimacy and more.
Sessions are 60-90 minutes in a relaxed setting such as a home or coffee shop.
How Does This Work For Pre-Marital Couples?
We are changing our Pre-marital policy asking couples who want to get married at East Side to commit to 1 year to be mentored. They would complete 4 – 5 sessions prior to marriage and then the other 5 – 6 sessions after their wedding.
