Pre-Marriage Classes for seriously dating & engaged couples
Topics for the 3 week pre marriage class include (but are not limited to): marriage, sex, finances, communication, parents/parents in law. Each session includes a discussion on the current cultural view compared with teaching on the Biblical view of each topic. Stay tuned for our upcoming Fall dates!
It is the practice of Northview Pastors to officiate at weddings of couples who share the same Christian faith commitment, and who are Official Members of our church. (Have gone through the membership class and interview process.) If this is not your situation or beliefs, and you would like to discuss this further, please contact the church.
If you would like to have one of the Northview Pastors officiate at your wedding please fill out the Wedding Officiator Request as soon as possible to allow enough time to process your request before your wedding date. Please note that we will attempt to accommodate your request to the best of our abilities. However we cannot guarantee that a Pastor will be available on a specific date. Certain dates such as long weekends in the summer and over holiday periods (i.e. Christmas, New Years) will be particularly difficult.
In order to be married by a Northview Pastor, engaged couples must complete a Northview pre-marriage course or pre-marriage counselling with a Christian counsellor (upon approval), and be a member of Northview Church.
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”.

Please contact Diana Dyck, Care Administrative Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org Our Pastors will not be able to confirm their role until he or she has an initial meeting with the couple. In the qualifying session, you should expect the Pastor to ask you about your Christian faith and the nature of your relationship.
