Are you engaged or getting engaged soon? Congratulations! You've just gained a life partner (and a potential blanket-hog). We want to come alongside you in this exciting season by helping set you up for success through our pre-marriage group. Utilizing the award-winning SYMBIS Program (Save Your Marriage Before It Starts) from renowned couple Doctors Les and Leslie Parrott, our goal is to get your marriage started to a healthy, solid start.
This course is designed for couples attending Cornerstone who are engaged or getting engaged soon. As we mentioned above, the SYMBIS program will feature a his and hers workbook, an online assessment, and video content designed to provoke thoughtful discussion from all in attendance.
This 8 week course explores:
Biblical Foundations for Marriage
Uncover the misbeliefs of marriage
Learn to communicate with instant understanding
Discover the secret to resolving conflict
Master the skills of money management
Get your sex life off to a great start
This course is required if you would like a member of our pastoral team to officiate your wedding.
For more info about a pastor officiating your wedding, email Pastor Anh or Pastor Sam.
The SYMBIS Program we utilize has been constantly refined since 1995 and is the go-to for many counselors and pastors who want to prepare others for marriage. It features 20 years of research, feedback, and professional experience from a couple who has dedicated their life to building and maintaining healthy relationships. As a clinical psychologist and a marriage and family therapist, this duo brings a unique level of insight that we want to share with you.
