Pastor of Care Ministry
Elmbrook's Marriage Care ministry provides the resources you need to build on a solid foundation and plan for the best possible future together.
Elmbrook Church is committed to preserving the institution of marriage as a God-ordained covenant symbolic of God’s love (see Hosea 2:19-20). We are responsible for ministering to couples approaching Christian marriage, and, so, Elmbrook Church has some wedding policies for couples to be married on-site or off-site. Please fill out the required wedding application. You can request a date and pastor to officiate. However, we cannot guarantee availability. Questions? Contact
Before a couple is married at Elmbrook Church, we ask you to complete the 9-week Premarriage Class, which starts each September and January. See below for more information.
Our 9-week Pre-Marriage Class is intended for those planning to be married or exploring the idea of Christian marriage. It is required for those intending to get married at Elmbrook or by an Elmbrook pastor. Couples do not have to be engaged or be regular Elmbrook attenders to participate in the class.
This class is offered in January and September.
Marriage mentors are available for both pre-married couples, as well as couples married 0-5 years. They'll walk with you through a guided assessment that will help you learn relationship skills to strengthen your marriage and tools for navigating the inevitable sticky spots that will arise.
