Premarital Counseling: Marriage Foundations

September 27–28, 2024 | REGISTER

Marriage Foundations is our premarital class; it is required for those who wish to be married at our church. This weekend course covers a number of relevant topics and is offered multiple times a year. Counseling appointments are included for those who participate in the course and include 6-month and 1 year post-marriage check-ins.

Recommended resources include The Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller; What Did You Expect? by Paul Tripp; Love & Respect by Emerson Eggerichs.

Sacred Marriage Small Groups

Every aspect of marriage provides opportunities to grow in Christ’s character. Join a six-session small group to study Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas, which aims to equip you to love God more passionately, reflect the nature of his Son more precisely, and fulfill God’s overarching purpose for your marriage.

Contact Laura Welke ([email protected]) for more information.

Support for Military Families

More than one in ten persons in our church is current or former military. Connect with other military members and find community or support, whether you are stateside or deployed.
