Congratulations on your engagement! We are excited to partner you both in God’s redemptive plan for your relationship in marriage.  To get started, please read our Marriage Packet, then register for the Foundations for Marriage class via the form below. We recommend you begin the process as soon as possible after engagement. We recommend 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 POLICY ON MARRIAGE

Before registering for the class, 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.

WHAT IS DCC’S FOUNDATIONS FOR MARRIAGE CLASS?

DCC’s Foundations for Marriage (Pre-Marital) Class is a 5-week study (10/8, 10/22, 11/5, 11/19, 12/3, 12/17) 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 next class begins October 8 and is required if you wish to have a DCC pastor officiate your wedding.

WHEN IS THE NEXT FOUNDATIONS FOR MARRIAGE CLASS?

The next round of classes will begin on October 22nd. The classes meet approximately every other Sunday from 4-5pm for a total of 5 meetings. Please register today to receive more detailed information on dates, time, and location.

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.
