Premarital Counseling Program

Center for Hope also offers Premarital Counseling services for couples who are considering marriage and newly married couples (two years or less) that have never attended a premarital counseling program.

Our premarital counseling service is designed to provide teaching and guidance that helps couples to build a strong foundation in their marriage before it starts. Our goal is to empower couples with the tools to have a lasting and loving relationship. For more information about our Premarital Counseling services click here, or contact Retta Smith at 309-827-2009.

The Wedding

Your wedding is a significant time in your life. Marriage is the birth of a new family through the union of two individuals. Careful planning will ensure that your wedding is meaningful to you, your family and friends.

To begin the reservation process:

  • Leave your name and desired wedding date with the church receptionist. You should receive a call within 48 hours informing you that your requested date is being reviewed.
  • You will be notified via telephone as soon as possible as to whether or not your date has been approved.  If so, an application will be provided.
  • If your application is approved, a signed contract and deposit/fees are due in the Church Office within 7 business days of the date of your approved application. If a signed contract and deposit/fees are not received within 7 business days of the date of your approved application, your wedding date may be subject to cancellation. Checks, MasterCard and Visa are accepted.
  • If your application is approved and fees are received in a timely manner, a confirmation letter will be mailed outlining the details of your wedding.
  • The Senior Pastor or his designee usually performs all weddings.  Requests for other officiants must be approved by the Senior Pastor.
