These Nights are powerful two-hour events for married people, no matter where they are in their marriages or their faith.  They always involve lots of laughter, creative programming, great music, relevant messages and follow-up applications that can be used as a couple.

Our next Married People Night Out for the year will be on Friday, April 28 and will include a meal at 6:30. Meal will be Chicken alfredo, salad, garlic bread and dessert.  We will also serve dinner to those attending the free childcare up through 6th grade

The theme for 2017 is 4 US!

Fight for Your US

Core 4 Habit: Respect and Love

Bottom Line: We shouldn’t create conflict, but we’ve got to press into conflict. 

Scripture: Psalm 51:5; James 1:5; Proverbs 15:23; 2 Timothy 1:7; Proverbs 20:3; Ephesians 4:32; Ephesians 4:26-27

Communicator Video: Crawford and Karen Loritts

In every marriage, conflict happens. Why? Because you are two different people with two different expectations, histories, personalities. So how to do you handle conflict? But you really can learn how to respond in a way that fights for your US, and doesn’t just . . . fight.

The Bible gives us the responsibility as parents to raise our children to know the Lord.  At Athens Christian Church we think this is a serious responsibility and a high calling.  We plan to help parents make a public confession that they will strive to the best of their ability to raise children who know and love the Lord.  This year on Mother's Day (May 16), we will partner with parents through a

Parent/Child Dedication service.  

TO REGISTER: If you would like to participate, please click HERE and fill out the registration form. (If you tried previously and had some issues, I made corrections to the form...sorry!) Then we would love for you to send a current picture of your child (or children) you wish to dedicate and a family picture (BY MAY 1) to our Family Life Minister at  We will make a slide show to show in the service that morning!

marriedpeople monthly

The MarriedPeople Monthly was designed to be that nudge for couples in our church.  A nudge to have a conversation.  A nudge to laugh.  A nudge to think.  It is a monthly marriage email used to help marriages.

Every month, the MarriedPeople Monthly contains go-and-do's that couples can actually go and do.  In each issue, you'll find the following content:

He Said/She Said: Each month, we highlight a couple we think has something great to say. We give them one question to ask each other. 

Hot Button: We ask a marriage guru to share with us one simple thing that could dramatically impact marriages. 

Random Awesomeness: We justify surfing the Web to bring you random awesomeness. 

Post It: Grab a sticky note, fill in the blank in the sentence we provide, and put in a place where your spouse will find it. 

The Spice: Each month, we will bring you one topic that will hopefully bring you closer in the bedroom. 

2-Minute Vacation: Escape the craziness of everyday life and dream with one another in answering a simple question. 

Plugged In: The best gift you can give your spouse is a healthy you—health spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. Each month, we explore a different way to make you a better you.
