Marriage Preparation Course and Marriage Course

The Marriage Preparation Course and the Marriage Course

How to build a strong and healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime!  Both the Marriage Preparation Course and the Marriage Course were pioneered in the UK by Nicky and Sila Lee of Holy Trinity Brompton (home of the Alpha course).

On Saturdays over lunch (11:30 am – 2:00 pm) at 426 Houston Street (across from Houston Street ballroom), 4 March through 8 April 2017, we will again run the 5-week-long Marriage Preparation Course (we will not hold a session on 18 March).  Email Justin and Susie Kastner for details (justinkastner@alphausa.org), or call/text us on 785-410-5792 (Justin) or 785-587-7799 (Susie).  Click here for information on how to register.TMPC_logo    

On the Marriage Preparation Course, you will be served lunch, dessert, and coffee in a romantic setting while listening to practical talks that are informative and fun.  There is plenty of time for private (one-on-one; it’s not unlike a date!) discussion, with your fiance (or potential fiance).  Each couple’s privacy is respected as there is no group discussion and no requirement to disclose anything about their relationship to anyone else.  The course is hosted by Trinity Canton’s pastor, the Rev. Dr. Justin Kastner, and his wife Susie.  Topics covered (over 5 weekly sessions, running 4 March – 8 April 2017, with no session on 18 March) include:

  • Communication
  • Commitment
  • Resolving conflict
  • Keeping love alive
  • Shared goals and values

We also periodically offer the 7-session Marriage Course (contact us if you are interested in our next course, dates TBA).  On the Marriage Course, evenings are designed for any married couple wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship.

Topics covered include:

  • Building Strong Foundations
  • The Art of Communication
  • Resolving Conflict
  • The Power of Forgiveness
  • The Impact of Family – Past and Present
  • Sexual intimacy
  • Love in Action

Evening sessions on the Marriage Course include dinner and, like the Marriage Preparation Course, there is plenty of time for private (one-on-one; not unlike a date!) discussion, with your spouse.  Each couple’s privacy is respected as there is no group discussion and no requirement to disclose anything about their relationship to anyone else. The course, while based on Christian principles, is helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.
