Merge is our pre-married ministry for engaged and seriously dating couples. The 8-week class is designed to give couples a unique opportunity to learn, seek wisdom, and receive Biblical counsel about marriage in a safe, fun, challenging, and authentic small group environment. Merge is open to the community and is a requirement for any couple wishing to have a minister of First Christian Church officiate their wedding. The next session begins in Feb 2021. If interested, please fill out this form and a Merge mentor will contact you with further information.
