Premarital Class – October 1 & 2, 2010

We are getting ready to begin the NewSpring premarital class again.  If you or anyone you know are engaged to be married, or if you are dating and close to getting engaged, we would love for you/them to join us.

The class will be offered as a weekend seminar.  It will be Fri night October 1 and Saturday Morning October 2 at the Anderson Campus. We will start at 6pm on Friday night and go to 9:30 pm.  (the first 2 sessions of the class) Then we will teach the last 3 sessions of the class on Saturday from 8:30 to 1.

During the sessions we will discuss many subjects, including God’s plan and purposes for marriage, marital roles and responsibilities, communication skills and conflict resolution. We will also be discussing many expectations people have for marriage including…how to fight fair, how to meet each others needs, dealing with in-laws, daily life, children, how to grow spiritually together, work expectations, how to deal with money,and wedding and honeymoon expectations

Here is what some couples that have taken the class previously have said about it:

– The premarital class at NewSpring really opened our eyes to some things that we had not even thought to discuss.  Not only did it contribute to our spiritual growth individually and as a couple, it offered practical advice as well. We really enjoyed looking through what we thought were traditional roles of the man and the woman, and comparing our very different answers. We’ve been married for two weeks now and everyone asks if we have had our big fight yet, we just laugh and say no. The premarital class really helped us direct our planning time toward our marriage and not our wedding.

– The NewSpring Premarital Class was something that both my fiance and I were looking forward to, but we had no idea what a huge impact it would make on our relationship. After dating for over 5 years, we were simply ready to get married, and thought that we had talked about all the “important stuff”. The class absolutely revitalized our relationship. My fiance was deeply moved by Jake’s words on being a spiritual leader. I was absolutely inspired by Suzanne’s example to be the helper and friend that my future husband deserves. We thought we had this whole relationship thing figured out, but now, thanks to the class, we have a new hope of how to truly discover God’s plan for our marriage

Anna & Justin

– My fiancee and I found the NewSpring Premarital Classes to be very beneficial. We learned a lot about how to have a strong, godly marriage. Jake and Suzanne were very transparent with us and told us their story. It was inspiring to hear their trials and how they have come through them as a stronger couple. The NewSpring Premarital Classes equipped us with the tools we will use as we grow in our walk with Christ and strive to have a successful marriage.
