Congratulations on your engagement! We are excited to partner with you both in God’s redemptive plan for your relationship in marriage.  We recommend you begin the process as soon as possible after engagement. Give yourself a minimum of 3 months notice prior to the wedding to plan for the ceremony and prepare you for marriage through the Foundations for Marriage Class.

STEP 1: READ OUR POLICY ON MARRIAGE

To get started, please read our Marriage Packet to understand DCC’s marriage policy, perspective on marriage and weddings, details on premarital expectations, and guidelines for planning a wedding.

STEP 2: REGISTER FOR OUR FOUNDATIONS FOR MARRIAGE CLASS

DCC’s Foundations for Marriage (Pre-Marital) Class is a 6-week study on biblical marriage designed to help you gain clarity on theology, your relationship, and relational skills. The class is open to engaged couples who want to build a solid foundation for their marriage. The course is required if you wish to have a DCC pastor officiate your wedding. Please go here to register for the Pre-Marital class.

STEP 3: FILL OUT FACILITY USE REQUEST FORM (OPTIONAL)

If you would like to have your wedding ceremony at the DCC building, please fill out this form. Once received we will work with you on availability and details.

WHAT IS THE COST FOR THE FOUNDATIONS FOR MARRIAGE CLASS?

As a gift to engaged couples participating with DCC, there is no cost for the Foundations for Marriage Class.

WHAT SHOULD I DO WHILE I WAIT FOR THE FOUNDATIONS FOR MARRIAGE CLASS?

Commit to discipleship in all the spheres God has provided to you. Engage in community, dig deep in Discipleship Group, and spend lots of time with your loving Father. If you haven’t read The Meaning of Marriage, we recommend you read the book together prior to the beginning of the class.
