HighRidge Church believes in the sanctity of marriage according to Mark 10:6-9, “But ‘God made them male and female’ from the beginning of creation. ‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.”’

Our Premarriage Counseling is open to everyone. We believe marriage is a covenant for life and we take the preparation seriously. We desire to serve couples in our area by building strong marriages that are prepared to endure the long haul.

We know it is easy to get swept up in the busyness of planning for a wedding and in the process, forget you really need to be planning for marriage. Our desire for premarriage counseling is to guide you into a deeper understanding of marriage by encouraging you to explore each other’s faith, history, personal convictions, future expectations, and responsibilities. We believe Jesus, not your feelings, hopes and dreams, fuels a strong, healthy, life-giving marriage!
