Adam and I found that there were not many resources to help guide Christian singles on how to court to be married, so they went to the world for help finding a husband or wife. We’ve created a step-by-step guide for Christian courting. This guide helps Christian singles have confidence in who God created them to be, their value, knowing their intentions for courting, creating their expectations for a husband or wife, building boundaries for emotional strength and ending a courtship. By using these guides you will have a Godly foundation to court to be marriage.

Wings For L.I.F.E. – Life-skills Imparted to Families through Education, is an empowerment program that provides life-skills, education, training, and support for family members/caregivers of prisoners (returning citizens) and at-risk youth. Some of the educational topics that are addressed include single parenting, finances – how to stretch a dollar, discipline, acceptance issues, prison visits, feeding a family, substance abuse and signs, reintegration and reunification issues, legal issues, public defenders, work/job issues, holidays, and anything else of interest to the group. Search Institute’s® 40 Developmental Assets® are incorporated into the training. 

In our society where children are all at risk in one way or another, children whose parent(s) are in prison face even more challenges.

Everyone is welcome at our FREE meetings. There is a Pre-K and After-dinner Tutoring Program for the children.

If you’d like to know more about Wings we are offering a Volunteer Training session on Jan. 30, Monday night, from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at 2015 Wyoming Blvd NE Suite J. Please RSVP so we have enough chairs. THANKS!
