Marriage Preparation

Marriage Preparation taken seriously before the "I Do's" is key to a crucial start to any marriage. Come alongside Pastor Josh and Lindsey in private sessions as they break down the significance of your marriage covenant with God and what that looks like today. Marriages today face many challenges. Some challenges include: the dynamics from your past, individual upbringings, and the many issues that come along with society's view of marriage. Let's sort it out together. Building a strong foundation now will bless your marriage for years to come. Investment is key! In marriage, any investment is worth the return. River of Life offers 7 Sessions of Marriage Preparation and Ceremony Planning to help you better understand the importance of marriage built around Jesus Christ​ and to cover you in prayer as you moved forward with your commitment to each other.
