marriage

From the very beginning, God demonstrates His value of marriage and family. We affirm God’s honor of marriage and family and desire to help you find God’s purpose for your relationship. Because these relationships are a part of God’s design, we have tools that will help you navigate your relationships. Whether you are thinking about getting married, building your marriage and family, or walking through a difficult place, there is a plan just for you.

premarital counseling

What is the premarital process?

  1. Contact us at info@ucityfamilychurch.com or (314) 329-8390 and let us know about your upcoming marriage.
  2. We use a curriculum called Prepare-Enrich, which is an online relationship assessment that helps to discover the strength and growth areas in your relationship.   We will send you a link to fill out the assessment and after you each complete it, we will set a date for the first session.  Prepare-Enrich charges a $35 administrative fee per couple. You can pay them directly via credit card or debit card when you log into the link. 
  3. You will meet with a member of our Pastoral Care Team to review the results of your assessment and to discuss the growth and strength areas in your relationship. 
  4. You will set a date and arrange for one of the licensed ministers in our congregation to officiate your wedding. 

Do we have to be members of U-City Family Church to go through the premarital process or have a U-City Family pastor officiate our wedding?

No. You do not have to be a member of U-City Family to go through our premarital process or to have one of our pastors officiate your wedding.

weddings

Can I hold my wedding at U-City Family Church?

We do not currently have the facilities to host weddings.


What are the guidelines for a U-City Family Church pastor to officiate our wedding?

If you are interested in having a U-City Family pastor officiate your wedding, premarital counseling is required prior to the wedding. If the premarital counseling is completed outside of U-City Family, counseling must be scripture-based, and we will need documentation of completion. This documentation should include the curriculum studied, a minimum of 6 hours completed and who facilitated your process on a form from your premarital counselors directly emailed to info@ucityfamilychurch.com. In addition, we recommend a minimum of a $300 honorarium for a pastor who officiates your wedding and should be given on the day of the wedding.

marriage restoration

Whatever issues you are facing, you want to work through them and come out of them stronger than ever.  We know and understand marital challenges. Our goal is to help you reclaim, heal, and build the marriage God intended for you. Great marriages are possible, and we would like to show you practical ways to restore and heal your marriage.


Who can I speak with if my marriage is in need of help?

Email us at info@ucityfamilychurch.com or call (314) 329-8390 and a member of our Pastoral Care Team will reach out to you.


Does U-City Family Church provide counseling?

We do not provide any form of mental health or professional counseling services.  We partner with Crossroads Counseling and Avenues Counseling.  You may call them directly or email us at info@ucityfamilychurch.com and we will recommend you to a professional counselor.
