Marriage is the one gift from God left over from the Garden of Eden. The enemy’s assault against marriage and the family makes it essential for us to saturate our lives with God’s word, to recognize the need for godly fellowship, and to establish our homes upon the Lord Jesus Christ. Our desire is to see your marriage and your family be a refuge for peace in a fallen world. Join with us as we study together and seek God to make our marriages thrive, not just survive; that His peace would rule in our homes; and that the Word of God would be a daily practical influence in our lives!

Trusting Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord sets our destination for eternity…Heaven! This is the most important decision of our life. Ready-to-Wed is a six week course to prepare you for the second most important decision of your life…marriage. As you anticipate that special day, you’ll learn God’s reason and purpose for marriage and how your life as one can be used to glorify Him and to treasure your life together… “until death do you part”. We have three classes that meet during the year: one in January, one in April and one in September. You must register for this 6 session class by filling out the pre-marital forms that are located at the main office of Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia. The next premarital class begins Tuesday April 4th, 2017.

Marriage Essentials I, II & III
Whether you’ve been married just a few years or several decades, these three (6) week session courses are designed to encourage and equip you and your spouse to build your marriage on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Every marriage has areas that need to be strengthened. Using Biblical principles, the Marriage Essential studies will help you and your spouse identify those areas and equip you to build them up.
Marriage Essentials I starts Tuesday April 5th.
Marriage Essentials II starts Tuesday September 6th.
Each class begins at 7:00pm and is held in the CCPhilly library.
Each Marriage Essentials course is independent in itself so you do not have to take them in successive order. Come out and discover God’s beautiful design for your life together as husband and wife!
Aquila & Priscilla – Together for God’s Glory
A six session intensive bible study for committed married couples to mature their marriage in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. We’ll study this couple, Aquila and Priscilla, who were always mentioned together in scripture; what characterized their life, what motivated their life, and how God’s kingdom was affected by their life.
This is a follow-up to the Marriage Essentials 1 and Marriage Essentials 2 courses and is for husbands and wives together. If you desire God to use your marriage for His glory and for the furtherance of His kingdom, and you’re willing and eager to study God’s word and discover what it really means to be “one flesh”, then this course is for you. We will only be accepting 15 couples per course, allowing us to create an environment of intimate study and accountability.
