Pre-marital Counseling

Cafe 127
"We feel Cafe' 127 gave us a head start on marriage.  It was great having a mentor couple available and taking an active interest in us and our first year of being a married couple. We identified of and discussed things that will impact our marriage in advance of their happening.  Getting help and resources at the café for planning our wedding made it one of the most awesome days of our lives!”

Café 127

Café 127 is an informal coffee house setting where soon-to-be-married couples can get their spiritual training for marriage and make connections with other couples on that same journey.

Café 127 is the initial environment we use to prepare couples getting married through the ministry of Community Christian Church. We give a certificate of premarital counseling at the end of the six consecutive cafes. This certificate, or one similar from a counselor, is the only prerequisite for getting married at CCC.

 

Café 127 will be open…

Sundays 6:00-8:00pm when the Cafe is in session.   Cafes are scheduled up to twice a year once 6 to 10 couples sign up (in Fall and again in Spring). Call to inquiry about the next potential date.

Dinner is provided

Cost is $140 per couple for all six dinners/sessions.
