Our premarital process is designed to help engaged couples build Christ-centered marriages. We value a foundation that includes the following:
A personal relationship with Jesus
Commitment to membership
A one year dating relationship
Living in accordance with Scriptural principles (maintaining sexual purity; participating in community life, such as a small group; growing in the knowledge of God and his plan for healthy relationships and family life)
Following your engagement, below are the steps (in order) you will take to prepare both practically and spiritually for your wedding and marriage! There is no shortcut to building intimacy, trust and communication. Because it does take time to plan a wedding and prepare for marriage, we ask that you call our office for an appointment as soon as possible following your engagement.
Step 1: Schedule an initial meeting
Step 2: Attend Premarital Classes (pre-registration required)
Step 3: Schedule your coaching meetings (four to six meetings before the wedding)
Step 4: Meet with a wedding administrator to confirm a wedding date with the church and a church officiating pastor, if needed
We are only able to marry couples where at least one person is a member. Newcomer's classes (required for membership) are offered several times a year. Our pastors can only marry couples that go through our premarital program. For more information about getting married contact us.
