God designed marriage to be an energy-producing relationship in our lives—one in which we mutually support, encourage and uplift one another. There is so much we can learn about ourselves and our mates that can bring greater joy, understanding and deeper connections in our marriages. Our Ministry is here to help you have happier, healthier marriages!

Preparing for Marriage Class

Preparing for Marriage is the pre-marital ministry of Calvary Church. It is designed to encourage deeper conversation and discovery for couples who are considering marriage or are currently engaged.

Please contact Elizabeth Thill for more information.

The cost is $100/couple and includes:

8 weekly sessions
Study guides for both the bride and groom-to-be
Coffee or Lunch with a mentor couple
SYMBIS Assessment

Designed around interaction, this class features great facilitators, video and group discussion, as well as strong, biblical perspectives. Most couples are paired with a mentor couple during the class to help round out the experience. The class is eight weeks long and is required for couples who want to get married at Calvary Church, but it is recommended for all who are considering marriage.
