WHY DO THE MARRIAGE PREPARATION COURSE?

 

READY FOR MARRIAGE?

How do we know we are right for each other? What happens if we are not compatible? Is it normal to have doubts? Do we have a realistic view of married life?

When we are contemplating marriage, these may well be some of the questions that we are asking ourselves. Such questions must be faced honestly.

 

In the 'Marriage Preparation' course there are seven sessions which are designed to reveal whether we have the foundation upon which to build a strong marriage. These sessions will show if we are right for each other but also if we are ready for marriage.

 

Marriage must be based on more than infatuation. Feelings of 'in loveness' will not sustain a marriage for a lifetime. Infatuation wears off but a marriage based on solid and realistic foundations will last a lifetime.

OUR CHURCH MENTORING SCHEME

The mentoring scheme is targeted initially at children and teenagers 9-19 years old.
THERE ARE MANY REASONS FOR THE SCHEME

  1. A lot of our young people cope with negative influences we could only have imagined a few decades ago.
  2. So many children in church live in difficult family and school environments (sometimes this is just the perception of the child though) and really want an adult to talk to in confidence.
  3. Some are caught up in habits that would surprise parents e.g. self-harm, gambling and internet pornography
  4. With the older children there is the pressure to conform to what is happening in society in terms of relationships, moral choices etc. Media, friends etc. are very powerful influences that need to be combatted by positive mentoring
  5. Too many children battle with low self-esteem and doubt their ability to excel.
  6. There are now several choices in terms of careers and our children are bewildered. Schools help but usually don’t give the advice a parent or Christian mentor would give.
  7. The children in church have themselves ASKED FOR a mentoring program.
