Marriage Mentors Needed

The church has a need for couples who have been married for ten years or more who consider themselves relatively (not perfectly) happy in their marriage relationship and are willing to invest in other couples to navigate the journey in marriage they've already experienced. In some cases, it might mean helping a premarital couple get ready and begin walking through their first several months of marriage. It might also mean walking with a seasoned couple who's encountered significant bumps and bruises along the way and in need of a helping hand and perspective as to how to keep going and growing. Mentors will be provided with the training needed for them to be successful in either of these mentor roles. 

If you are interested in becoming a marriage mentor couple, contact Curtis DuBose at cdubose@mitchellroad.org by May 30!

Local Spotlight:
May is National Foster Care Awareness Month

At a low commitment (4-5 times a year), join our diaper team or our meal train team! These teams will be informed when one of our foster families gets a new placement and asked to provide diapers or a meal.

At a medium commitment (1-2 times a month), become a wraparound family to one of our foster families and support them by coordinating with the diaper team and set up a meal train when your foster family gets a placement. The wraparound family’s goal is to build a community around your foster family by providing emotional support. Also, at the medium commitment, become a respite family! Respite families are licensed to provide respite (long term babysitting) for foster families.

At the highest commitment, become a foster parent and commit to “stand in the gap” for children in need, or consider adding to your family through adoption.

For questions regarding foster care or adoption, email orphancare@mitchellroad.org
