Family Ministries At Grace
Throughout the year, a variety of opportunities are offered to help strengthen families, marriages and provide fun ways to connect as families in our community. We do this through classes, events, play-dates, and outings at Camp Ghormley.
Our covenant to God and to our spouse are the two most important relationships we have. Strong marriages glorify God as together we learn through the incredible teaching from Nothing Hidden Ministries called Love After Marriage. Our mission is to glorify God by giving Him our best. We can’t think of a better “best” than helping couples who may be struggling in their marriages or just need a tune up as they learn to walk closer to Jesus as they grow closer together and experience amazing spiritual and emotional breakthrough together.
With marriages in our country struggling, it is more important than ever to be a church who continues to invest in marriages both within and outside our church. We are planning an intensive 18 week marriage class that will be offered in small group settings at Grace of Christ Church this year. A more individual marriage mentoring will also be offered for couples in need of restoration later this year as well.
Peaceful Parenting is a free 8-week class for parents, grandparents, foster parents or anyone who spends time with kids from birth to teenager years. This class is open to the community and taught by Community Health and Parenting expert Mary Pleger. Offered 2 to 3 times a year at Grace of Christ Church, Peaceful Parenting is designed to give parents proven techniques to help them understand their child’s behavior, learn the power of praise, better ways to communicate with any age child and understand more about their individual parenting style. Each class has table captains who pray for and are in community with their table mates each week. This is a court approved class so certificates are awarded upon completion of the class. Child care is offered during class free of charge.
