Congratulations! are in order as you've decided to spend the rest of your lives together as husband and wife. And you're certainly to be commended for taking the next step by looking into pre-marital counseling. We believe that such a resource is a key element in preparing for success - laying the foundation for a lasting and Christ-honoring relationship.
Our premarital counseling will give you a biblical perspective in areas such as: true and lasting love, life goals and priorities, in-law relations, marital roles and responsibilities, communication dynamics, conflict resolution, financial stewardship, and emotional and physical intimacy. You will also be given homework assignments to facilitate your discussion on a number of specific, practical issues - in which there are differences due to family background, individual preferences or personal convictions. In addition, we'll help you prepare for and plan your wedding. To top all this off, you'll have the option of a six-month and one-year checkup as newly weds!
Although this counseling course is designed to cover general topics, your counselor(s) will tailor each session to your individual needs and concerns. We believe you'll be instructed, challenged, strengthened and better prepared for marriage.
Since this is a ministry of Faith Bible Church, there is no counseling fee. You will, however, need to purchase a workbook and supplemental reading materials.
As you can see, the counseling you'll receive is very comprehensive. For that reason, you'll be asked to attend at least seven sessions (which includes an introductory, get-acquainted time).
May God bless you richly as you embark on this journey together to fulfill His plan and purpose for your lives!
"For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother,
8and the two shall become one flesh;
consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh.
9What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
- Mark 10:7-9
