Your Big Day is a Big Deal
At Waymaker.Church, your big day is a big deal! Marriage is a picture of the Gospel, the covenant between God and His people. Our God is a covenant God; the Bible is a covenant book; and we are a covenant people. And when the Bible refers to marriage, it’s the same type of relationship we’re told to carry out. Marriage is more than a contract; it is a calling. It is a calling that says, “I’m never leaving, no matter what happens and no matter what you do. Even when you don’t deserve it, I’m not leaving.” That’s the beauty of God’s relationship towards us; He never leaves us.
Here at Waymaker.Church, we are called to be a renewed community for New Testament marriages to form, heal and thrive, so the tide will turn on the family collapse of our times. This is why we hope to partner with you and your future spouse!
What to Expect During Premarital Mentoring
Before you walk down the aisle, you will have five to six sessions with one of our premarital mentor couples at least six months before your wedding date. Premarital counseling is available for you no matter who is officiating your wedding. If you would like a Waymaker.Church pastor to officiate your wedding, you will also meet with your officiant one to two times before you tie the knot! Couples often have their premarital counselor officiate their wedding, so that is also available to you.
The cost for premarital mentoring is $200. The cost for an officiant is $300 plus travel fees if the venue is 25 miles outside of Lynchburg.
This class helps you build core values as a family, navigate finances, and how to communicate effectively. Covenant is an eight-week class that helps engaged and married couples build a foundation that lasts.
