Marriage & Family

Colossians 3:18-21

Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.

Pre-Marriage

If you are wishing to be married at the Desert Vineyard or by one of our pastors you must complete the pre-marriage process. For more information on this process, contact Pastor Audra or download the brochure HERE
