Couple with Bible       Marriage is a sacred relationship, ordained by God to
       help us know him better by learning to love another
       selflessly, unconditionally and with sacrifice. It is our
       desire to support, encourage and equip marriages in
       such a way that we empower couples to build
       Christ-Centered marriages.

fcobmarried is a ministry to intentionally support, encourage and empower couples to create and build healthy Christ-centered marriages.  As we begin this exciting new ministry, the fcobmarried ministry team is asking couples to participate in a Marriage Ministry Survey, becoming a part of the discernment process as the team seeks to better understand the concerns, needs and interests of our couples.  You can participate online here or stop by the table in the Sanctuary Hallway on Sundays and pick up a survey.

Preparing for Marriage @ FCOB

The Frederick Church of the Brethren affirms Christian marriage is an expression of God’s covenant relationship with humankind.  This divine institution focuses on both a Covenant with God and a Covenant with God’s People

The Marriage Ministry of the Frederick Church of the Brethren is designed for persons who are centered in Christ and active members and/or participants of the congregation. It is our desire that every couple married by one of our pastors actually begin to develop the building blocks of a healthy Christian marriage before their wedding day. Our purpose is:

  • to prepare engaged couples for a life-long, God-glorifying marriage
  • to assist in the preparation of the wedding ceremony
  • to provide resources after the wedding to help the couple maintain and enrich their marital relationship


To better understand what we believe and what we expect form those wishing to be married @ FCOB please read FCOB’s Marriage Ministry Guidelines.
