Save Your Marriage Before It Starts


SYMBIS is an eight-week class for dating couples considering engagement, engaged couples, and newly-wed couples married less than two years.  You can build your marriage on more than a hope and a prayer.  The SYMBIS and SYMBIS+ Assessments give you a personalized road map to making your marriage everything it was meant to be.
This course is required for couples wanting their wedding officiated by a Community of Faith pastor.

The next SYMBIS course will begin in February 2021.  
Couples are encouraged to register by January.  SYMBIS begins with an online assessment and then meeting with a COF Marriage Mentor couple, to review Assessment results before the first group class.
The cost for assessments is $35/per couple.

Following the couple-to-couple Assessment review, couples attend group classes, led by SYMBIS Facilitators.
Classes meet every other Sunday evening at 6:00.
SYMBIS classes begin Feb.7, 2021. Final class is March 21.

Marriage Mentoring

This is an opportunity for a one-on-one mentorship with another couple. During this time, you will study the His Needs, Her Needs material to learn practical and applicable tools for a healthy marriage.

In the classic bestseller His Needs, Her Needs, Willard F. Harley, Jr., identifies the ten most vital needs of men and women and shows husbands and wives how to satisfy those needs in their spouses. He provides guidance for becoming irresistible to your spouse and for loving more creatively and sensitively, thereby eliminating the problems that often lead to extramarital affairs.
