Marriage: Pre-marital Counseling for Couples

 

Couples considering marriage are invited to meet with one of our pastors. Pre-marital counseling is one of the areas in which our pastors offer assistance. You are invited to contact our pastors by visiting our STAFF CONTACT PAGE to arrange a private appointment.

To assist couples in building a Christian foundation for their marriage, our pastors use God's Word to guide couples in learning more about God's plan for marriage and implementing that plan in their lives together.

Additionally, many couples have benefited from a program entitled Prepare/Enrich, a leading relationship inventory and couples assessment tool. Pastor Wilcox is a trained facilitator for this program. The program includes a couple's workbook which covers the following areas: Sharing Strength and Growth Areas, Communication, Personal Stress Profile, Conflict Resolution, Financial Management, Leisure Activities, Sex and Affection, Relationship Roles, Spiritual Beliefs, Marriage Expectations, Children and Parenting, Couple and Family Mapping, and Personality Scoping.

Couples may also find a Marriage Questions and Answers collection prepared by our Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) to be helpful.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- not by works... ~ EPHESIANS 2:8-9
