Marriage and Family
The mission of this ministry is to partner with married couples and equip families to fully align themselves with God’s ultimate purpose, which is to glorify Him.

Those on this journey together can connect through similar life challenges where God is shaping and refining for His glory.

We desire for everyone at Kindred to have both a daily abiding conversation with God as well as deeper and more far reaching prayers. We love to pray not only for the physical needs of the church but also for spiritual needs such as confession of sin, spiritual growth and the advancement of God’s kingdom. Prayer is our key weapon in our spiritual battles as Christians and so we encourage everyone in the church to become prayer warriors. If you are in need of prayer you can be assured that our prayer warriors will bring your request before the throne of grace.
Our prayer warriors facilitate prayer in the church in the following ways:
- Bi-weekly as well as emergency prayer emails that touch specific prayer needs of our church family (we have a dedicated prayer email team monitoring the church’s prayer email address).
- Being available to pray with anyone who has a need, both before and after each Sunday morning service.
- Weekly meetings to pray for the needs of the body.
Where and When
- Sunday mornings - we gather to pray for the needs of anyone at the service and the service itself.
- Sunday evenings - we meet at 6:30pm in Multi Purpose Room #1 to pray for the needs of the church and the needs of the body.
There are numerous opportunities to serve in the prayer ministry. Pray about how God would have you fill a role in this ministry.
