SINGLE PARENT MINISTRY

We want single parents to know that God's love includes them and their children. This ministry provides basic necessities such as food, cleaning supplies, and toiletries on a monthly basis. It also provides coupons for car maintenance up to three times a year. Single parents who desire this kind of care will need to pick up a registration form from the church; and submit/mail the completed form to the church office.

MARRIAGE MENTORING

We believe that marriage is a holy institution created by God and set apart to be the highest representation of human relationship. Our marriage mentoring is designed to draw you closer to each other as a couple, as well as connect you to another couple that has done life together longer.  We use 12 Conversations guide by Dr. Edward A. Gray. Mentoring meetings are informal and relaxed; and meet once a month, if possible. Our marriage mentoring is NOT counseling, taking sides, fixing couples or revealing all your secrets. Our marriage counseling IS a supportive friendship, with couples sharing their stories about the blessings, realities, and challenges of marriage in a relaxed setting.
