Premarital Preparation

We recommend a premarital class for every engaged couple at River Valley Church. The engaged couple will meet weekly with a marriage mentor couple for six weeks. The fee for our premarital class is $75 per couple. Completion of this class qualifies you for a discounted marriage license fee with the State of Minnesota.

Completing this class is required if you desire to be married at a River Valley Church location or by any member of our pastoral team. Our heart is to position every engaged couple for a God-honoring, life-long marriage. To be married by a River Valley Pastor, it is required for the couple to be living separately and abstaining from physical intimacy.

We ask that you start this class at least three months before your wedding date to ensure adequate time to complete the class. To begin the process, please fill out the form below.

Marriage is defined by River Valley Church as a covenant between one man and one woman. In order to be married at River Valley Church or by a River Valley pastor, the couple pursuing a marriage ceremony must be one man and one woman.
