Matthew 19:4-6

Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus replied. “They record that from the beginning ‘God made them male and female.’” And he said, “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.”

Pre Marital Counseling

We celebrate your decision to get married, and would love to journey with you through this an exciting time of life. As you prepare for marriage, there are important preparation conversations that you can and should have to set yourselves up for success. CCF would be honored to serve as a resource for your pre-marital counseling and to cheer you on as you make this covenant to each other.


We want to do everything we can to prepare couples for a godly marriage. For weddings officiated by a CCF team member, pre-marital counseling is required. Timely planning well in advance of your wedding date will help us do that with you. However, you may also book our facility simply for a wedding ceremony, utilizing other resources to prepare and officiate the ceremony.

FAQ about Marriage, Sexuality, and Singleness:

We believe in the historically Christian view of marriage and sexual expression that is Scripturally defined as a one-flesh covenant union between two sexually different persons (male and female) from different families (Gen. 1-2; Mt. 19:4-5; Mk. 10:6-9). Our denominational polity prohibits us from hosting or officiating weddings that do not align with this definition.

While we believe that all sexual relationships and expressions outside of marriage are sinful, we express this belief through being a people of deep compassion, love, grace, and truth. We, therefore, lovingly extend hospitality and kindness in all possible ways, and we welcome all to worship with us.

We also believe that God does not value marriage more than singleness. We hold the belief that all people are made in God’s image and that we are called to love and treat each person equally regardless of their marital status. We seek to be a community that embraces each person wherever they may be in their relationships and equips them to follow Jesus wholeheartedly, whether that be in marriage or in singleness.  (Gen. 1:26-27; 1 Cor. 7; Eph. 5-6).
