Calvary Church values healthy marriages and families. Married couples have an opportunity for marriage enrichment through various events, and couples who have the need for counseling can be connected with a network of marriage and family counselors.


Christian couples are at risk for divorce just as much as non-Christian couples. Pre-marital counseling is a great first step for couples wanting to get married and stay married! Calvary Church offers many tools to start you off right in your marriage—individual counsel with a pastor, connection with a mentor couple, a weekend seminar with experts in a variety of fields, and other direction that can be tailored just to you and your spouse-to-be.

Hot topics covered in pre-marital counseling include:

  • Understanding your family of origin
  • The Biblical understanding of marriage
  • Communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Finances
  • Sexual intimacy
  • Roles in marriage
  • Legal issues
  • Expectations going into marriage


Marriage Matters

Relationships are hard work, and every couple needs a tune-up now and then. Whether you’ve been dating someone for a while, or have been married for years, you’ll find this workshop beneficial. Instructors will include Ben Tyvoll, Sid Veenstra, and other experts on conflict resolution, your family of origin, and faith backgrounds. The goal of Marriage Matters is to support you and help you enrich your relationship, because your marriage matters.

You’re ready to set the date. Congratulations! If you’re a member or regular attender and you’ve decided not to get married in a barn or at a golf course, there are a variety of indoor facilities available for you between Calvary Church’s two campuses—Roseville and White Bear. If getting married in the great outdoors or at another venue, one of our pastors can officiate, once you’ve completed our pre-marriage counseling sessions.
