STEP TWO: Register for Your Premarital Class

Merge

This eight week series of classes is fun, real, interactive, and all about getting your marriage off to a great start. Merge gives engaged and seriously-dating couples the opportunity to seek wisdom and receive counsel about marriage. We incorporate large group teaching, small group time, the leadership of seasoned “coach” couples, and a stellar curriculum to address common challenges in marriage from a Biblical perspective. Merge is the first step toward a Christ-centered marriage, and we would be honored to walk beside you as you begin your journey.
