As a church, we are so excited to provide resources for our married (or planning to be married!) couples. Here’s a quick overview of what resources we have to offer:
Married Couple's Weekend
November 10-12th | Mystic, CT
These classes meet every Sunday immediately after the 1st service in Conference Room 5 and are focused on equipping couples to fulfill the vision the Lord has for their lives. You will walk away each week with tools to grow in your marriage and be challenged to grow closer to the Lord and to one another. This is a required class for all those involved in any of the SGT Marriage Ministries.
Pre-Marital Counseling / Getting Married at SGT
When two become one, it should be for a lifetime! Before you take this important step, make sure you know what you’re doing. Our Bible-based, pre-marital classes run for eight weeks and can make all the difference in the years to come. The classes are a combination of video, discussion, and lecture. Each couple will also be given a FOCCUS test to better understand the strengths and challenges of the relationship. Attendance and participation in these classes is required for those desiring to be married by a pastor from the staff of Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle.
Contact Skip and Eileen Hein at 631-862-1532 for more information and details.
At SGT, we provide free couple-to-couple counseling through our NAME CENTER (National Association for Marriage Enhancement). Our trained and certified counselors provide biblical and effective counseling to reassure you that God cares and that He desires to be a central part in your marriage. You will learn principles from God’s Word that will reinforce God’s ideals for husbands and wives.

What is the purpose for your marriage? Does God have something specific in mind for us to do? I know there must be more to marriage than just struggling to make ends meet and striving to be happy! Kingdom Marriage is a 6-week small group marriage ministry. Couples meet in homes using a video/workbook format. Tony Evans’ inspired teaching will give men and women new insights into biblical principles as well as assurance that God has a powerful purpose for each Kingdom Couple.

Relationships and You
This series on the book of James was taught in the Fall of 2022 by Pastor Ted Bichsel. We pray that these audio recordings equip you to have a healthier, more Godly relationship with your spouse.
