Marriage & Families
Marriage & Families
There are several components that make up NMC’s comprehensive approach to caring for the hurting, wounded, and discouraged.
Our pastors are available to pray with NMC individuals and their family during any surgeries and/or hospital stays. We have also implemented a lay team for follow-up care after surgeries and/or hospital stays. There is also a weekly sheet for care concerns that can be found in the worship folder and a comprehensive list of care concerns at the Ministry Center.
Our Grief Share program is available in the fall for those who have lost family members and want a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. This program meets on Tuesday nights in the Fireside Room when in session.
Our Divorce Care program comes alongside those individuals who are experiencing the devastation and pain of divorce or separation. This program typically meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm.
Marriage & Family Ministry
Our goal in the area of marriage and family is to provide a variety of options, resources, and tools throughout the course of a year to help educate and motivate individuals, couples, and families.
We offer Premarital Counseling for any NMC couple who are planning on getting married. This year-round course generally takes place the first Sunday of every month in the Fireside Room from 4-6 pm. A comprehensive list of topics is covered including communication, conflict resolution, finances, sexual intimacy, and spiritual oneness. The cost for premarital training is $75 and can be paid at the Ministry Center or church office. Any questions about this program can be directed to Staci Keter.
We also offer a variety of crisis counseling options including the NMC pastors and a comprehensive list of Christian counselors and psychologists.
A great resource for marriage and/or parenting enrichment can be found on Wednesday evenings in the adult programming arena. The various options for these can be found at the Ministry Center.
Other marriage enrichment options can be found throughout the year in the form of workshops, one-day marriage events, and marriage retreats. Marriage mentoring is available on a one-on-one basis. Please contact the Church Office to find out more.
