Premarital/Marriage Mentorship

Whether you are preparing for marriage or have been married for some time, we can help you build a strong foundation. After taking an online inventory, couples are paired with a mentor couple who will help them process through their strengths and their growth areas as a couple. Topics like communication, conflict resolution, financial management, marriage expectations, couple and family maps, and more are talked through. For more information about either our Pre-Marital Marriage Mentorship or our Marriage Mentorship contact Pastor Tami Lundgren at 815-501-3939.

Healthy Marriages

We encourage ALL couples at Colonial to go through re|engage at least once. Whether you rate your marriage a 2 or a 10 or you have been married for 2, 10 or more years, re|engage is a safe place to reconnect. Re|engage brings couples together to learn about God’s design for marriage and apply biblical principles for building a healthy relationship.
