Marriage Preparation

Courses for couples

A three-week course designed to give engaged or recently married couples a solid Christian foundation to their marriages. We let the Bible teach us how to build a marriage on the Christian principles of grace and forgiveness, while tackling practical issues of communication, conflict and sex.

The course is also suitable for people who wouldn't call themselves Christian.
