Marriage & Families

GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

From the very beginning, God demonstrates His value of marriage and family. We affirm Christian marriage as a beautiful covenant relationship between God, one man, and one woman. Because these relationships are a part of God’s design, we have tools that will help you navigate your relationships. Whether you are thinking about getting married, building your marriage and family, or walking through a difficult place, there is a plan just for you.

Hebrews 13:4 (NLT) – Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage.

PREMARITAL COUNSELING AND WEDDINGS

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! If you are looking to invest in developing a strong foundation for a lasting marriage through premarital counseling we are excited to celebrate with you on your wedding day.

Do we have to be members of Freedom Church to go through the premarital process or have a Freedom Church pastor officiate our wedding?
No. You do not have to be a member of Freedom Church to go through our premarital process or to have one of our pastors officiate your wedding.

What are the guidelines for a Freedom Church pastor to officiate our wedding?
If you are interested in having a Freedom Church pastor officiate your wedding, premarital counseling is required prior to the wedding. If the premarital counseling is completed outside of FC, counseling must be scripture-based, and we will need documentation of completion. This documentation should include the curriculum studied, a minimum of 6 hours completed and who facilitated your process on a form from your premarital counselors directly emailed to info@freedomwilliston.com. In addition, we recommend a minimum of a $350 honorarium for a FC pastor who officiates your wedding and should be given on the day of the wedding.

Is there a cost for premarital counseling?
Yes. The cost is $80 per couple. This covers the online assessment and the materials used for premarital counseling.

MARRIAGE SMALL GROUPS

Marriage is a gift from God and we want you to discover God’s great plan for your marriage. We also know there are no quick fixes in parenting. Parenting takes time, attention, and love. In marriage and family (parenting) groups, we will focus on God’s design for couples and families, as well as learn with other like-minded couples on this same journey.
