Marriage & Family

Colossians 3:18-21

Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.

Marriage & 
Pre-Marriage

MARRIAGE
If you are in a season of crisis in your marriage, you are not alone.  Sometimes one or two conversations with a pastor can help bring clarity and support, other times a couple of months of Spiritual Care can help you work through your difficulties together, and then sometimes your relationship will be best helped by the ongoing support of a professional therapist.  We are here to help you choose a path toward healing, to recommend resources, and to pray with you along the way.  You can learn more and complete the request for Spiritual Care HERE or contact our Spiritual Care Director, Crystal Roseborough for more information at 661-945-2777.  

PRE-MARRIAGE
We want to help you prepare for a lifelong marriage, not just your wedding day. If you are engaged or thinking about engagement, our pre-marriage mentoring is designed to help couples share their hopes and fears with one another and discover the joys and difficulties faced in marriage as they prepare for that big commitment. If you are wishing to be married at the Desert Vineyard or by one of our pastors you must complete the pre-marriage process. For more information on this process, contact our Wedding Coordinator, Carolyn Baldonado at 661-945-2777 or stop by to pick up a brochure with all the details.

Sexual Integrity

MEN'S FREEDOM GROUP
A recovery group for men dealing with sexual integrity issues. In a nationally representative poll, 43 percent of men and 9 percent of women reported that they watched porn in the past week. Adult exposure to pornography is connected with sexual callousness. Use of pornography & other sexual integrity issues have a devastating effect on live of individuals & their families. Similar to addictive behavior, it is nearly impossible to overcome without help. You can find help & hope here! For more information contact Kriss at 661-609-6460 or visit our groups HERE.
