Pre-Marriage Course

PRE-MARRIAGE COURSE

PMC equips couples before their marriage with a realistic perception of marriage as they walk through the course with the PMC facilitator/mentor. It also provides a platform for couples to highlight to the PMC facilitator/mentor potential issues which may arise in their marriage and thereby seek appropriate advice to cope with the issues should they be faced with the problem. PMC therefore strives to serve as a prelude to an enriching, fulfilling and growing marriage.

The Course
Conducted in small groups of not more than 10 couples per group, PMC spans 6/7, 3-hour sessions. During the course, each couple will meet up with the PMC facilitator, an Inner Healing and Deliverance minister for at least 1 session each before their final interview with the Family Life Pastor.

Topics covered during the PMC are as follows:
Foundations of Christian Marriage
Prepare/Enrich Assessment 
Roles, Responsibilities and Decision Making
Communications and Conflict
Managing Finances
Sex in Marriage
Spiritual Life and In-Laws

Couples who would like to be married by COOS are advised to commence on their wedding arrangements only after they receive the letter informing them that they have successfully completed their PMC. 

Starting from 2015, COOS members who have completed their PMC with us will be paired up with a marriage mentor couple from the Family Life Ministry to walk them through the first year of their marriage.

Where to sign up?
Each couple who intends to marry, is required to submit PMC application here.
