CBC’s blended family ministry was created to support remarried couples (after the death of a spouse or divorce) and couples in first time marriages who are bringing children into the relationship. Our goal is to help you create a strong, lasting, Christ-centered union! We understand that blended families have unique challenges. We want to equip you with the biblical tools, resources, and support to help your marriage and family thrive. Whether you are newly engaged, a recent newlywed in the early stages of blending your family or have been married for many years and have an empty nest, you can benefit immensely from this ministry.

Small Groups

Small Groups


Our blended family ministry small groups for couples are led by trained volunteers who are in stepfamilies themselves. These small group communities are a platform for sharing real-life experiences and biblical stepfamily resources with one another. Each small group is typically no larger than 5 to 6 couples and meets twice monthly.

1:1 Mentoring

1:1 Mentoring


Similar to our traditional marriage mentoring program, all blended family couple mentoring sessions are strictly confidential. The mentoring process lasts about four months and you typically meet every other week to foster honest, healthy dialogue.

Every blended family couple has a unique, tailored experience and meeting times are flexible to accommodate busy, and often ever changing, stepfamily schedules. Our mentors will guide you through in-depth discussions on topics such as communication, conflict resolution, partner style & habits, finances, leisure activities, sexual expectations, family & friends, relationship roles, stepparenting, and spiritual beliefs.

Interested in getting started?

Contact a pastor or our blended family ministry leaders directly to determine whether a small group or 1:1 mentoring is the right fit for you.
