We may be stating the obvious, but there’s more to getting married than picking out dishes and getting a new blender. Marriage is a journey. Marriage is an opportunity to put the gospel on display. The way we love each other, the way we prefer each other, the way we support each other…our marriages can point to who Jesus is, what He has done for us, and our calling to draw others into this life-changing story.
Whether you are just beginning this journey together, or if you have been married for many years, we are learning together to build our marriages into compelling relationships that point directly to Jesus.
ROCKHARBOR’s marriage ministry hopes to help couples thinking about marriage lay a foundation for a God-centered life together, helping develop and use essential tools for a Spirit-filled and intimate marriage. We want to see a community filled with compelling marriages, set apart for the sake of sharing love and grace found in relationship with Jesus. Building this kind of marriage can happen right from the start.
This 5-week course is for couples who are engaged or seriously dating.
Some topics explored are: Biblical View of Marriage, Effective Communication, Intentional Listening, Personality Inventory, Love Languages, Purity, Anger Management, Conflict Resolution, Forgiveness, Budget, Family of Origin, Roles & 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 ROCKHARBOR pastor.
Our next course begins on Saturday, January 21 and ends on February 25 (we will skip Feb 11).
Class meets Saturdays from 8:45am to 12:30pm.
Location: ROCKHARBOR Offices, The Lab, 3095 Red Hill Ave, Costa Mesa.
At this time, due to the number of weekend Celebration Services, we do not hold weddings at our Central location in Costa Mesa.
If you’d like to be married by a ROCKHARBOR pastor, please start by filling out the Wedding Request Form and email it to marriages.
