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.

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 and 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.
Are you struggling with who you are? Are you caught up in pornography? Have you been sexually abused and mistreated? This program is devoted to sexual healing, wholeness, and to transforming the life of an individual.
