FREE Premarital Counseling/Education

We have a 4 Session premarital education program for couples who wish to be married by one of our Ministers.

(Don’t Panic!)

Think of this as a getting to know you and exchange of information. We used to require this program, but we decided that we are not on a mission to tell you what choices you should make individually or as a couple. We do ask you to allow us to provide you the information so that those decisions can be made with the right information.

This counseling and education program is just an opportunity to share with you what the bible says on marriage, and some time tested information. It is also a chance to address those little concerns or questions you need to work through before the big day. It is also the opportunity to get to know your Minister and discuss the details for your wedding ceremony.

We will ask you to schedule a 30-minute phone/online conference appointment on our website or by calling our office. You will meet with one of the Officiant / Ministers to discuss the details of your counseling program and your wedding plans.

We “Usually” schedule these sessions Two Months in advance to a Wedding Ceremony. These sessions can be started sooner if the Couple and Officiant / Minister agree there may be the need for additional meetings or issues to discuss that require additional time. You will also be asked to sign a policy, privacy, disclosure acknowledgment form. This form advises you of our various policies designed to protect you and your Officiant Minister.

The topics of premarital education are outlined below. These topics are subject to adaptation and addition based on couples individual circumstances and needs. These will be planned and discussed during your Premarital Intake Appointment.

  • Marriage and The Bible
  • Money
  • Sex (Surprised? well don’t be because a healthy sex life within marriage is very important)
  • Communication
  • Children
  • The Minister also may have personal experiences to share as well.

Even if both parties in a couple wanting to be wed have come from a previous marriage, we still encourage this program. It will be adapted to your specific situation.
