Congratulations on your engagement! We’re excited to be a part of this special time in your life.
At The Life Church we value the marriage covenant between man and wife and want to do our part to set up our members to have a strong, flourishing marriage that will stand the test of time. From pre-marital counseling, to presiding over your ceremony, our goal is to help you build your marriage on a strong, biblical foundation.
The wedding process at The Life Church will take about six months to complete and is available to members of The Life Church. This length of time should allow you time to complete the marriage preparation materials, meet our pre-marital education requirements, and carefully plan your wedding with one of our coordinators.
We have outlined steps to help you build a satisfying, love and grace-filled marriage that will last a lifetime. Through the years, we have seen God’s best come from solid, intentional preparation for marriage. The time you spend during your engagement should be viewed as an investment in the life that you will live together. Pre-Marital Education is offered to members of The Life Church. Members are individuals who:
1. Profess their faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
2. Commit to the vision of The Life Church by:
- Consistently attending weekly services.
- Purposefully connecting into church life (currently serving on a team, attending connect groups, etc.).
- Supporting the church by giving faithfully through tithes and offerings.
3. Praying for and supporting the leadership of the church.
