Pre/Post- Marital Counseling
First choosing the one with whom you will spend the rest of your life in the sacred covenant of marriage is incredibly significant. Now that you have chosen to commit yourselves to one another, we encourage you to align your engagement, your marriage and your home with sound standards. Second, perhaps you are married but the honeymoon has ended and you find it difficult to maintain the joy you once had together. Maybe you need some tools to help you build or rebuild a solid, committed marriage.
This program is for couples before and after they get married. It is designed to help the couple understand the concept of the oneness of two individuals, created not by individual choice but by divine institution. A number of topics are covered in counseling including: The mystery of marriage–the two shall become one; covenant thinking; finances; sex; we just said “I do,” now what do we do we…
We are committed to helping you make your marriage work. Call today and set-up an appointment. There is hope.
Have you ever vowed to absolutely never forgive someone? Some claim that forgiving is a one-time decision rather than a process. Saying I forgive you is all that matters. Although language can symbolize forgiveness, it cannot be a substitute for sincere forgiveness. Forgiveness therapy is designed to help you understand the mental and spiritual process of ceasing to feel resentment, indignation, and/or anger toward another person for a real or perceived offense. Stop holding on to old hurts, forgive, let go and you will be made free.
Grief and Loss Support Group
The grief that follows a major loss is one of the most misunderstood of all human experiences. This group is for people who have experienced the emotional pain of loss such as death, divorce, sickness, unemployment, and many more that are not typically recognized when considering loss. If you need support and understanding – even if you are a significant other of someone who has experienced loss –this is the place for you. Join with us and together we can understand and heal.
Boys to Men
With so many young men attracted to gangs, dropping out of school, fathering children at early ages and missing a father figure in their lives, it is critical that we step in and play a role in helping them avoid harmful situations. Boys to Men is a mentoring program designed to intervene in the lives of boys before the streets capture them. By building up their self esteem, impressing upon them the importance of integrity, being self-aware we hope to help young boys develop into responsible men with promising futures. They will be mentored by men of integrity who have risen above their circumstances and are willing to invest in the lives of our young people. We highly encourage you to get your boys into this program, for their future and our future.
