Preparing for Marriage

Recently engaged or seriously dating considering getting married soon? Congratulations on this significant milestone in your life!  Following a relationship with Jesus Christ, a relationship with a spouse is the next most significant relationship for a married Christian. Strong marriages don’t happen by themselves. They require preparation and dedication to God’s design for marriage.

If you would like to establish a solid foundation for your future marriage or would like to explore the possibility of marriage, we invite you to go through premarital counseling. The couple meets with the pastor over the course of several months to explore key issues like a Biblical understanding of marriage, communication, finances, conflict and problem resolution, sexual intimacy and roles of spouses in marriage. The preparation also involves taking the Prepare/Enrich assessment that helps couples assess strengths and growth areas in their relationship.
