MARRIAGE

Marriage Matters Event

The idea of commitment in a marriage is getting so blurred that it is no surprise over 50% marriages end up in divorce. In a time where we are seeing this kind of crisis in marriage, Crossway is dedicated to coming alongside couples to help them understand the meaning of true commitment in marriage. When we take our marriage vows and say “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health . . . til death do us part” What Does That Really Mean?


Come to Marriage Matters to hear about Real Commitment from our pastors and their wives - Dave & Erin Ripper and Dave & Nancy Smith.

Preparing For Marriage

We strive to prepare couples for lifelong marriages that honor and glorify God. We want to prepare couples for their marriage and we want to provide tools to help enrich marriages also.


Premarital Assessment: Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts Assessment https://www.symbis.com is designed to obtain a clear picture of your personal relationship for life long love. Each person will individually take a 30 minute online survey. This survey generates a combined report that is sent to and reviewed by a trained SYMBIS facilitator couple. The engaged couple will then meet with the facilitator couple to unpack their report together over a 2-3 two-hour session. Cost is $35.00 per couple. To sign up for the assessment, please email, call or text Pastor Abhijeet Lall/ 480-938-3770.


Enrichment

Every marriage benefits from a periodic check-in. Parenting, career, family responsibilities, health, and just life in general, impact the vibrancy of releationship. Over time, couples often lose the ability and desire to talk about their relationship.


Prepare/Enrich is an excellent tool with substantial evidence supporting its reliability and validity of its scores and their uses. Every couples takes the assessment that cost $35.00 and then meets with one of our couples to go over the assessment.  Whether you have been just married or have been marries for 60 years, marriage mentors are ready to facilitate, encourage and guide other couples by sharing personal experience and a biblical perspective on marriage.
