Get on the same path!

“AveNEW” is the exciting new platform for young couples at Christ Chapel! Whether you’re married, engaged, or almost there — we believe when you each turn toward God, the ride together only gets sweeter. When you arrive at AveNew, there are a few things you can expect: a welcoming community, genuine stories, great teaching, plenty of interaction and a purposeful challenge that you can take home and apply each week.

It’s our hope that throughout the year when you see an AveNEW teaching series on the horizon, you will put on the brakes and take these opportunities to get on the same path with your significant other! For more info, contact Michael at or 817-546-6178.

Couples Home Groups


There’s no better way to feel like you belong to a church than finding a group of friends to connect with, grow with, have fun with and rally around in times of need. Life change happens in small groups!

You can locate a specific couples home group online. When using the online tool, be sure to select “Life Stage 2” under age group, and “couples” under marital preference, then click “search.”


If you have any questions about the online process, or would like help choosing a group that’s right for you, contact Michael at or 817-546-6178.

Marriage Mentoring


Marriage is a radical idea. It is a special gift that God has given us. It is more than just a partnership where we have many things in common. It is God’s idea. Success in marriage involves more than just having special feelings for one another. Almost all couples who marry think that they are going to be happy together and have a long-term marriage, yet a huge percentage end in failure. Engagement is a difficult time. Many couples feel the pressure to have the perfect wedding, but it’s much more important that you prepare for an enduring marriage. Investing time and energy in preparing for your marriage before it starts is the best way to build a strong foundation for a lifetime of unlimited intimacy.

There are three distinct parts to the Christ Chapel Mentoring program. You will meet in the home of a mentor couple for approximately six sessions of 2-3 hours each. The mentor couple has been married at least 15 years and has exhibited the traits and skills necessary to have a great marriage. For more information, click here.



Would you rate your marriage as a 2 or a 10? Maybe even a 0? You are not alone. Whether your marriage needs to be reignited, or is in need of a complete resurrection, re|engage is a safe place for couples to reconnect.

re|engage offers hope to marriages by helping couples move toward oneness through stories of grace, teaching or testimony by a couple who has experienced victory in the midst of hard times and small group time which follows a specified curriculum.

We meet on Thursday nights from 6:45 to 8:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall East. re|engage will be an on-going, open ministry to regular attenders of Christ Chapel Bible Church so there is no need to register beforehand. You can begin the re|engage process at any time. For more information, email Julie at



Sometimes life stages at Christ Chapel “intersect” each other over special topics. Every summer, Christ Chapel hosts a marriage series for couples in life stages 2 and 3. It is our hope that over these six weeks together, you will make some new friends, grow closer to your significant other, and learn something new about God and His design for marriage.

We also utilize Intersect as a way for couples in Life Stage 2 who have had or are expecting babies to progress to Life Stage 3, where they can be around other parents of young children to help them in their new journey of parenthood.

The next Intersect series is on Sundays, July 23 through Aug. 27 at 10:45 a.m. in the Oak Room at our Fort Worth Campus.
