Marriage & Family

Calvary Church values healthy marriages and families. Married couples have an opportunity for marriage enrichment through various events, and couples who have the need for counseling can be connected with a network of marriage and family counselors.

Marriage Night

Join thousands of couples in churches around the country for a one-night livestream experience hosted by RightNow Media. You and your spouse will laugh and learn with speakers Matt & Lauren Chandler, Conway & Jada Edwards, Les & Leslie Parrott, and comedian Michael Jr., and discover how to honor God in your marriage. To accommodate social distancing and other current MDH guidelines, the “social” portion of the gathering will be outdoors, and we ask that you bring your own lawn chairs and beverage for the picnic meal. Pre-packaged meals will be catered for this event.

EXTENDED DEADLINE! Registration is closed.
Cost $30/couple, $15/person. No childcare. Scholarships are available.

Pre-Marital Counseling

Christian couples are at risk for divorce just as much as non-Christian couples. Pre-marital counseling is a great first step for couples wanting to get married and stay married! Calvary Church offers many tools to start you off right in your marriage—individual counsel with a pastor, connection with a mentor couple, a weekend seminar with experts in a variety of fields, and other direction that can be tailored just to you and your spouse-to-be.

Hot topics covered in pre-marital counseling include:

  • Understanding your family of origin
  • The Biblical understanding of marriage
  • Communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Finances
  • Sexual intimacy
  • Roles in marriage
  • Legal issues
  • Expectations going into marriage

You’re ready to set the date. Congratulations! If you’re a member or regular attender and you’ve decided not to get married in a barn or at a golf course, there are a variety of indoor facilities available for you between Calvary Church’s two campuses—Roseville and White Bear. If getting married in the great outdoors or at another venue, one of our pastors can officiate, once you’ve completed our pre-marriage counseling sessions. Take a look at the Wedding Planning Guide below to see how weddings work at Calvary Church.
