• Preparing for Marriage

Course | Preparing for Marriage

In this 3-part course each session will include an informal talk using multimedia, PowerPoint, and testimony designed to explain aspects of marriage from a Christian perspective.

The BIG day you are planning is coming.  It is exciting doing the planning, but making sure that the big day is a success can require a lot of energy and dedication.  And marriage is no different – we need to commit time to making it work as you start out on a new life together.

The Bible says “a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”

Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment as established by God.  Marriage is a visible picture, a living testimony of Christ’s love for the church.  It provides for the man and the woman the framework for intimate companionship and marriage is the foundation of the family.
