Premarital Class | Next Class: Jan. 12 - Feb. 16

Healthy marriages don't just happen. If you're engaged or considering marriage, our premarital class and mentoring process will help prepare you for a healthy marriage that lasts.

Successful completion of the premarital class and mentoring are required before a Christ The Rock pastor can perform a marriage ceremony.
