We want to see a community filled with compelling marriages.

Not just compelling, but also set apart for the sake of sharing the love and grace found in relationship with Jesus. Building this kind of marriage can happen right from the start by joining our Pre-Marital Classes, Seriously Dating or Engaged.

These classes, taught in a group setting, are offered 3 times throughout the year. Classes meet for 5 consecutive weeks on Saturdays from 8:30 am – 12:30 pm.

Some topics explored are: the Biblical view of marriage, effective communication, intentional listening, personality inventory, love languages, purity, anger management, conflict resolution, forgiveness, budget, family of origin, roles and responsibilities, spirituality in your marriage, and sexual intimacy. This class satisfies the requirement for premarital counseling for all couples desiring to be married by a Cottonwood pastor.

The cost is $100.00 (non-refundable) per couple. Pre-registration is required.
Note: It is recommended that a couple plan to begin pre-marital counseling six months before their wedding date.
