Family Life

We are committed to Enrich Family Life with relevant teaching that will encourage you to press on, challenge you to dig deeper, inspire you to reach out to others, and most importantly, transform you to become more like Jesus. Every family has struggles today. . . relational, financial, parental. Together we can learn from the experiences of others and encourage one another as we navigate through the marriage and parenting storms.  
Each Wednesday night we meet at 7pm in the Fireside room (downstairs in FMC). This class is dedicated to teaching families about parenting, marriage and spiritual leadership. This class is open to couples, singles, and anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge on family relationships.  
On Sunday mornings, we meet for Bible study during the Sunday school hour from 9:45 to 10:30 AM in the Family Ministry Center, Section A. Through the summer time the Better Halfers small group & the Young Couples small group will merge together to learning about parenting and how to raise godly children.  We have invited four couples to come and share on how they have been successful in raising godly children. Join us on this journey of learning how to be better parents. We provide free coffee and doughnuts. 
Family Life Ministry at Bakersfield First also provides pre-marriage counseling for those considering marriage, as well as biblically-based counseling for married couples.
You'll love our annual couple’s retreat, a weekend away for just the two of you to focus on building your relationship. 
Join us in a casual atmosphere that is accepting and inviting where you will find plenty of opportunities to connect with other people and build new relationships. 
Children’s Programs are available during service and class times.
