A healthy family is built on a healthy marriage, and although there is no such thing as a perfect marriage, you can have a successful one. Successful marriages, however, don’t just happen! They grow out of a strong commitment to pleasing God.

When a husband and wife choose pleasing God as the highest priority of life, He faithfully pours out His grace in a special way upon that relationship. To that couple, He grants the grace to be everything He intends them to be; namely, an example of Christ and His love for His Church (Eph. 5:31).

Available Ministry

Pre-Marriage Ministry:
We offer pre-marriage ministry designed with the purpose of helping couples make biblically informed decisions regarding marriage. If you are seriously heading toward marriage, or simply curious about what the Bible has to say on the subject, this is an excellent place to start. Preparing for Marriage is offered as needed, and is taught by any one of our available pastors. If interested in pre-marriage ministry, please complete this form (one form per person; both of you complete it individually).

Marriage Ministry:
Of all the names given to describe our Lord in the Scripture, one of my favorites is simply, “Counselor” (Isaiah 9:6). The simple truth is, we all need God’s wise counsel, and He promises that when we ask in faith, He will give it generously (James 1:5)! Furthermore, because God has been so generous in sharing His wisdom with us, we now have the privilege and commission to share it with others. As Jesus sent out His disciples to minister to the needs in their world, He reminded them, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8). In our marriage ministry here at Calvary, we believe this command applies to us as well. Thus, we do not charge money for the ministry we offer.
