Pre-Marriage Class

Hope pastors expect all couples to attend one of the pre-marriage classes offered at Hope. Hope believes couples should begin a married relationship with as many tools as they can gather for a lifetime of growth together. By participating in the class, couples are making an important decision to invest more deeply in what God has given—each other and a loving relationship.

The Pre-Marriage Class consists of five weekly sessions or one weekend class where couples look more intentionally at their relationship. Facilitators share thoughts and insights into building a healthy and growing relationship that lasts a lifetime. Couples will also discover ways to ensure the relationship thrives. Hope offers the Pre-Marriage Class four times each year.
