This workshop is designed to help you build a strong foundation for your marriage and is offered twice a year in January and September. Weekly homework and topics discussed: Purpose, Marriage & Love, Communication, Conflict Resolution, Needs, Differences & Expectations, Roles, Responsibilities & Decision-making, Sexual Intimacy, Financial Management, Parents and In-Laws.
Two additional sessions are provided specifically for Blended Families (i.e. couples with children of any age). Each couple will have a mentor couple during the workshop and will meet with them a minimum of 3-4 times outside of class to discuss specific issues.
WVC requires that couples totally complete the Premarital Workshop at least 3 months before your wedding date. Satisfactory completion of this workshop (or comparable sessions with an approved counselor) is required if you plan to be married at Woodmen Valley Chapel or to ask one of the Woodmen Valley Chapel pastors to perform your wedding. These requirements are outlined in the Premarital Manual. If WVC workshop timing doesn't work with your wedding date, you can email Dee Dee Martin to obtain names of Christian counselors who provide comprehensive premarital counseling.
You do not have to be engaged, attend Woodmen, or have your wedding ceremony at Woodmen Valley Chapel to attend our premarital workshop.
