Marriage is one of the most important and sacred relationship journeys we embark upon.  It is also the crucible that brings out the best and worst in us as individuals and couples.  At Sunnybrook we are diligent about helping couples grow, strengthen and mend marriages.  


At Sunnybrook, we have two programs that offer help for couples looking to work through specific issues in their marriage.  

Marriage Mentoring:

Couples will meet with a mentor couple for 8 weeks to focus attention on particular issues, gain fresh perspective and improve communications.  

Christ focused Marriage Counseling: 

Sometimes it can be helpful to talk with a pastor about marriage struggles and challenges.  We can provide a pastoral response to your situation and/or referrals to local licensed Christian counselors for ongoing counseling.  

We refer to Daniel Rumberger (712-277-4760) in Sioux City or Deon Wynia, from our counseling partner Bethesda Christian Counseling in Orange City (800-269-3160).  



Annual Marriage Retreat

Every couple needs time to just get away, enjoy each other and remember how their love began. Sunnybrook  wants to provide an opportunity for just that. That’s why we offer a marriage retreat once a year. It is held here at Sunnybrook Community Church.

This retreat offers practical teaching sessions followed by individual discussion time for spouses, fun activities, time to relax, group worship, delicious food, and fellowship.
