union Marriage is a union, not simply one of two people making a life commitment to another, but more importantly, it is a couple making a covenant before a holy God who binds the union together. Because our goal at PCPC is not just to perform your wedding ceremony but to guide you into a marriage as God intended it, we encourage you to enroll in either the fall or spring Union course. The class, taught by PCPC pastors, meets each Wednesday night for eight weeks, September 12–October 30, 6:30-8:00 pm, in Oak Lawn West (Special note: This class begins Thursday, September 12, but will meet Wednesday nights subsequently). The course is $60 per couple and covers topics such as The Biblical Meaning of Marriage, Communication, In-Laws, Biblical Roles of Husband and Wife, Money and Stewardship, Conflict Management, and Sex. This course is open to engaged, seriously dating, and newly married couples. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-224-2740.
