If you are a regular attendee of Hillside Church and you would like to be married at the church or by a member of the pastoral team, you must complete our pre-marriage counseling requirements. You will work with a trained mentor couple or counselor for six weeks. These sessions are designed to help couples learn the biblical view of marriage in the areas of communication, faith, family, money, sexual intimacy, and more. Completion of the counseling qualifies you for a discounted marriage license fee with the State of Minnesota.
