Couples and Parents Ministry

Family Min2 We believe that the Bible teaches 4 areas of government Family, Church, Civil and Self government. All four institutions have great effect on our personal mission as Christians to influence our world. The Family government plays the greatest role in helping children live successfully in the other 3 areas. It has been said that maintaining a thriving family in this day and age is a difficult chore. family 2We believe that the church can be of value to the family structure by offering support in many places like the Voyage Childrens Ministry and Reach Youth Ministry for your children. Path Counseling is available to assist you when you need a friend or need help figuring out something deeper. Life Transitions can be of benefit as we all manage the never ending environment of home-life, a death in the family or even a birth. All of these things can change our lives dramatically. Our Children, Youth and Singles programming are available with tools to assist a family as they manage life and all that gets thrown at us. coupleWe believe Christianity is an offensive stance rather than a defensive one. A healthy vibrant faith expressed in a home not only prevents challenging life choices and consequences for couples, parents, and children but helps to foster a strong relationship between them. A Christianity Today article noted: - 53% of Very Happy Couples agree with the statement, "God is at the center of our marriage" (compared to 7% of Struggling Couples). - 30% of Struggling Couples disagree with the statement, "God is at the center of our marriage." Our varied areas of youth and teen programming is important to all of us. We have also found our Nav Group relationships provide healthy environments for couples and parents to exchange information and find support in times of need. Friendships built in Nav Groups can be similar to the "neighbors down the road" of days gone by to lend a helping hand from family to family. If you have a specific question in the area of couples and parents feel free to contact us with your question(s). Find out what other people in your same situation have been through.
