Premarital Class

Premarital Class

At LifePoint, we desire for marriages, especially new ones, not just to survive but to thrive. As a part of our Marriage and Family Ministry, we offer premarital counseling services that help soon-to-be-married couples begin their marriage started on a strong foundation.

Our premarital Class is offered 3-4 times a year. You will be asked to attend (2) two-hour classes. Once you have completed at least 4 hours of counseling you will receive a notarized certificate of completion.

Classes are facilitated by Karl and Ruth Meyer. If you would like to participate in this class, please the form from the link below.

If your wedding falls prior to the premarital class completion dates, we can schedule you for premarital couples counseling with our pastoral counselor. Please contact to schedule.
