Welcome to the Oakwood Marriage Ministry
We are excited that you are interested in seeking God's best for your marriage. Whether you are about to get married, need a tune-up, or the wheels are coming off we have some tools to help. Please see below for classes and events we are offering at Oakwood. If you are not finding what you are looking for, feel free to email and I will help you find the right tools. One thing I can promise: there is a TON of HOPE when Jesus is involved, and He cares deeply about you and your spouse.
Preparing for Marriage
Oakwood is excited to offer Fall and Winter classes for couples who are engaged and preparing for marriage. We want you to enter your marriage confident and Christ centered. Our desire is you would complete the Fall and Winter class before you say I Do.
In September 2022 we will offer a two-tract approach.
Ready or Knot
The first tract will be for couples that have never been married. They will go through Ready or Knot by Scott Kedersha.
God designed marriage to be a permanent commitment this side of glory, which is a lot of pressure when you think about it. Can you know for sure if they’re “the One”? In these twelve sessions, Scott Kedersha surfaces twelve crucial questions every couple should consider prior to exchanging vows. Drawing from his experience counseling more than 5,000 premarital couples, Scott will walk through everything from finances and in-laws to sex and friendship.
Book cost $25 per couple
Ready or Knot Class Date:
Fall 2022: September 18 at 11:00a
Registration is now closed
The second tract Marrying Again will be led by Steve and Celia Peace for couples who have been previously married, this class will help couples navigate the obstacles from previous marriages.
Marrying again, whether as the result of the death of a spouse or the divorce of a spouse, is, more often than ever, followed by a second marriage. Therefore, pre-marital counseling for couples who choose to marry again is vitally important. In seven sessions “Marrying Again” will address topics that need to be carefully considered before a second marriage.
Marrying Again Date:
Fall 2022: September 11 at 9:30a
Maintaining the Marriage
At Oakwood we participate in the re|engage marriage enrichment program. Marriages in any condition can benefit, whether you are struggling to get along, your marriage is broken, or you simply want to grow closer together as a couple. re|engage examines God’s design for marriage and how couples can grow together in true Biblical oneness.
Guardrails Class for Couples
Ever wonder what it would be like to have guardrails in areas of your life? Your friendships. Your finances. Your marriage. Maybe your greatest regret could have been avoided if you had established guardrails. In this 5 week study, Andy Stanley challenges us to stop flirting with disaster and establish some personal guardrails. Cost is $20 a couple for materials.
