Marriage and Parenting



Marriage is the foundation of a family, and we have ways to pour into that relationship at all stages:
as you prepare, as you are enriched, or if you need repair.


Pre-marriage Counseling

We offer occasional weekend conferences for engaged couples or couples contemplating becoming engaged. Do you want to pursue an extraordinary, visionary marriage? Facilitated through a video series by Dr. Rob Rienow, President of Visionary Family Ministries, this Friday and Saturday conference will encourage and equip you to build a great marriage on Christian principles.

Our counseling practice includes the importance of prayer, dependence on God, a thorough knowledge of the Word of God, and an understanding of ministering to people.

We want to equip parents in raising children holistically and intentionally from a Biblical perspective while adjusting their parenting role as children grow older.

Family Huddles

This 8-week series provides biblical teaching around parenting while fostering community and friendships by plugging parents and families into small groups. The first four weeks we meet in a classroom setting, and the last four weeks we will meet in a small group community.

DivorceCare For Kids

DivorceCare 4 Kids (DC4K) provides kids ages 5-12 with a safe, neutral place to gain an age-appropriate understanding of separation and divorce. For 13 weeks, your children will become involved in a fun, caring group with weekly topics to help your children learn that God's love strengthens them and turn their sadness to hope and their anger to joy.

Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities such as games, crafts, role-playing, discuss times, journaling, video, and Bible teaching. DC4K offers help and encouragement to children and their families (not counseling).
