Connecting couples with Christ and one another.
At White’s Chapel, we believe that we were created for relationship—with God and with one another. Marriage is one expression of how we live into and become the people God creates and calls us to be. We also believe that part of being the church means we cultivate space for nurturing thriving relationships, reconciling hurting relationships, and welcoming how God works through and redeems all of our relationships.
We want to welcome you on this journey as part of our marriage ministry.
So, whether you are about to be married or are celebrating 50+ years of marriage, join us as we share in moments designed to draw us closer to God and to one another. Together, we’ll study God’s word, learn more about cultivating healthy relationships, laugh together on date nights, and more!

Marriage Ministry: Pizza Date Night
“Shelter-in-place doesn’t have to mean no more dates! White’s Chapel wants to encourage all of our couples to intentionally spend time together, not just shelter in and cohabitate. That’s why we are launching a series of “At-Home Date Nights.” To kick us off, we want to have a Date Night Re-run. If you participated in Pizza Date Night on January 31, then this will feel familiar. If you didn’t, it’s not too late because we are re-releasing the “menu” for download TODAY! Since you are staying in, you’ll notice a few things are different: you won’t be going to a restaurant, for one. The pizza and the conversation guide is our focus for this re-run. All you need to do is order a pizza for delivery; download the menu; follow the conversation guide, and enjoy the time together! Have fun!”
This date is all about fun. The goal is for you to laugh together. That's it!

Couples’ Call to Prayer
Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.
Now, more than ever, our marriages need prayer—and we need one another. You are invited to join us for a Couples’ Call to Prayer, sponsored by the WC Marriage Ministry Team. We will gather via Zoom for a brief word of hope and a prayer over our marriages and all relationships at WC. We believe we are a people called to prayer and, through prayer, we stand in celebration and solidarity together. The call will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
