12 Habits that Lead to Divorce and How to Avoid Them

This is a series that we took some time to really dig into in our Couple’s Class this past season. Click the links below to view either an abbreviated 2-min devotional summary of the study, or an in-depth 20-30 min teaching on each of the 12 habits.

Expanded Teaching


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:

Couples Class

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.
2021 Pre-Covenant Class Start Dates: January 8th, 2021 (Winter) and September 10th, 2021 (Fall)
Contact Skip and Eileen Hein (631-862-1532) for more information and details.

Couple-To-Couple Counseling

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.

Married For Life

Married for Life is a twelve-week course that can change your marriage forever. This course provides a Biblical teaching of life-giving principles that make a marriage last, no matter what season of life you are in. This small group ministry that meets in homes has produced thousands of couples now living as one, with purpose and God given Power!
