Welcome to the Young Marrieds Ministry
We are so excited that you are interested in learning more about Young Marrieds Ministry! We have created a thriving new community for young married couples at Shadow Mountain Community Church.
What exactly is a young married couple?
We consider young couples to be 35 and under... however we really leave the "young" part up to you... it’s based on your own personal comfort level and life stage. We have everywhere from newlyweds to couples married 12 years and couples with children to no children any time soon. On an average week we have about 35-40 couples in our cafe's.
