Premarital Counseling

City of God Church believes that premarital counseling is a great way for a couple to prepare for a strong marriage for a lifetime. If you are getting married in the next year and would like to receive premarital counseling from City of God Church, complete this form and we will connect you with a pastor or approved couple to provide your counseling. We will do our best to schedule counseling with every couple that requests it. Premarital counseling costs $35 per couple to cover the price of the online evaluation we use. 

Notes on our scheduling process:  

For weddings between October 1, 2022- Jan. 31 2023:

  • The premarital request must be submitted no later than September 11. Requests submitted AFTER September 11 we will do our best to help- but we simply may not be able to assist you. 
  • For CoG Members- We should be able to pair you with a couple from our counseling team to walk you through one-on-one counseling sessions
  • For NON-CoG Members- We will try to pair you with counselors for one-on-one counseling, but if demand becomes too high we may not be able to accommodate your request. Pairings with counselors will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. 

 

For weddings between February 1—June 30, 2023:

  • Requests must be submitted no later than January 23, 2023.
  • Any requests made less than 3 months before the date of the ceremony may not be able to be accommodated.
  • CoG members will be accommodated with 1 on 1 counseling if at all possible. They should speak with Tim Kurtz to set something up.
  • For NON-CoG Members- we will PROBABLY run a GROUP premarital class for 4 weeks, likely in February 2023.
