Marriage & Family

GETTING MARRIED?

At Solid Ground we view marriage as a covenantal relationship and our aim is to give you a Biblical perspective on marriage. 


We would love to journey with you, so why not sign up for our Marriage Preparation Journey?


Graeme and Belinda Lennox are absolute legends, and they are currently overseeing our Marriage Preparation Journey at Solid Ground Church. Some of our other leadership couples might also be involved. 
Graeme and Belinda planted Solid Ground Church many years ago in their living room. They have over 40 years of experience in preparing couples for marriage and in marriage counselling.  


Our Marriage Preparation Journey consist of 6 sessions and then a possible 7’th session if you would like one of our pastors to be involved on your wedding day.


Marriage Preparation is a gift and to give you a foretaste of what you can expect, have a sneak peak at what you will cover in these sessions.


Session 1: What is love & marriage? 
A biblical meaning of love & marriage.


Session 2: Who am I and who are you?
Part 1 - Love languages, similarities & differences, strengths & weaknesses.


Session 3: Who am I and who are you?
Part 2 - Dealing with your relational past.


Session 4: How do we do?
A biblical view of roles, communication & conflict resolution.


Session 5: What do we want?
Expectations, making life choices together, values & vision/dream for your marriage. 


Session 6: Hot Topics (Sex, finance, in-laws & other family matters)

Session 7: The wedding ceremony plan.

We would strongly encourage you to give us and yourselves ample time to complete this journey without being pressurised by a wedding date.


If you would like one of our pastors to be involved on your wedding day, please know that we require that the marriage preparation journey must be completed, before we consider the process of officiating a wedding.


Kindly consider being generous towards the couple that is giving up their own personal time to equip you for marriage.
If there are travelling and accommodation costs involved for our leadership couple to assist you on your wedding day, we do ask you to please cover those expenses for the pastor/leader involved.

MARRIAGE COUNSELLING

Most of us find ourselves in some difficult seasons in a marriage.  Well done for reaching out!

We would love to pray with you and encourage you along your journey.

We have many experienced leaders that can share and advice accordingly.

Although we are not professional psychologists, we have seen fruit by being instruments in the hands of God and by allowing Him to lead us in helping couples along the journey.

BABY DEDICATIONS

At Solid Ground we love to celebrate this special moment.

Baby Dedication dates for 2022:

  • 15 May

  • 14 August

  • 13 November

How we view Baby Dedication at Solid Ground Church?

You, as parent/s are dedicating your child unto the Lord. At Solid Ground the dedication moment is just as much about the parents as it is about the child.

By dedicating your child, you display a desire to raise your child in the way he/she should go. (Prov. 22:6)

Like the saying says: “It takes a village to raise a child.” We as your Solid Ground Family would love to come alongside you on this journey.

We as leaders love to make this moment special by praying for your baby/child on the day.  Together we then trust that God will do a work by His Spirit to lead this child and to bring them to the point where they believe unto the Lord Jesus Christ and what He has done for them, personally. We stand in prayer with you as parents and pray a blessing over your child.

You are most welcome to invite as many friends and family as possible, to this special moment. We would love to host all of you for a special tea after the service where we host our Baby dedication parents and family and friends.

If you would like to dedicate your baby/child on a Sunday morning. Please give us your details by filling in this form.

If you have any questions regarding dedication and baptism, please attend one of our Gospel and Baptism classes that takes place once a month or do not hesitate to contact us by calling our pastoral staff at 013-2431969/70.
