Christian Classes for Marital Preparation

Prepare Beyond Your Wedding Day for a Lifelong Marriage

When a man and woman find themselves getting serious about the possibility of marriage, we encourage them to gather as much information as they can about what to consider before they say "I Do". 

The Marriage Fundamentals class is held in Sunnyvale, CA to help you think through important aspects of marriage and adjust your expectations accordingly.

The course is ideally for those in a relationship considering engagement or marriage. Additionally, those married under 5 years seeking marriage enrichment classes are encouraged to attend.
