Bethany's Premarital Process
Step 1: Before you are engaged, take the Exploring Engagement class.
Step 2: Once you're engaged, take the Engaged class. While Exploring Engagement is not a prerequisite for the Engaged Class, we highly recommend taking both classes if possible.
Step 3: If you would like to get married at Bethany, book the venue at least six months before your anticipated wedding date. (SeeWeddings at Bethany)
Step 4: Schedule a pastor to officiate your wedding. Pastors will be honored to do your wedding; just ask them directly.
Step 5: Arrange for individual counseling with the pastor performing your wedding.
Step 6: Your Bethany pastor or mentor will ask you to take the PREPARE Inventory.
Step 7: After the wedding, sign up for a Newlywed Community Group for support and community in that all-important first year of marriage.
