Marriage Preparation runs twice a year in the Fall and Spring. Our next session will run for 6 weeks from April -to mid-May.  To participate, please contact Pastor Isaac at least 2 weeks prior to the in-take Interview Deadline.  The in-take Interview Deadline for the next session is March 1, 2022.

Classes will be on Sundays, time TBD.

Who is the class for?

Wondering whether your dating relationship should move toward marriage?  Or are you already engaged to be married?

As couples make the decision to get married, their focus quickly moves toward the excitement of preparing for their special Wedding Day. Our ministry seeks to help couples prepare well for what their wedding day is all about – a life-long commitment to a godly and healthy marriage. 

As such, our Marriage Preparation Course has been developed for couples who are seriously dating or engaged, by providing them with biblical and practical teaching on marriage (class), marriage mentorship (you will be assigned a mentor couple), and time to go over couple-specific issues based on the Prepare Inventory.

Topics:

  • My Expectations
  • God’s Expectations
  • Communication & Conflict Resolution
  • Money Matters
  • Sex & Children
  • Growing Toward Spiritual Oneness

Note: Due to the importance of all that should be considered and weighed, this course should not be hurried. Therefore, we strongly recommend all couples to hold off setting dates and sending out invitations in order to give themselves enough time and space to adequately process what they have learned through the Marriage Preparation Course.
