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.
