FamilyLife@Grace is a ministry dedicated to restore and empower families to fulfill their God-given purpose.  God has called families to be the salt and light to the world.  Thus, every GRACE FAMILY is called to become a MISSIONAL FAMILY – to be the gospel in our communities.

We seek to fulfill this purpose in 2 ways. First, to restore to wholeness broken marriages, broken families and broken Individuals.  Second, to empower Husbands and wives to love each other deeply, Fathers to take up their spiritual leadership at home, Parents to take up their Godly responsibility to raise Godly kids and Families to be a gospel to their communities. To fulfill this purpose holistically, we are establishing 4 different components in FamilyLife@Grace – Married Life, Parenting Life, Restored Life & Life Resources.

Married Life

MARRIED LIFE seeks to strengthen marriages by building a movement to transform couples from simply being husband and wife, to become lovers for life. We have couples who are interested, not only in enriching their own marriage, but also to help nurture other couples. We call them Marriage Partners. They are trained to help strengthen and enrich marital relationships and to build a strong family.

Parenting Life

PARENTING LIFE seeks to restore parents to fulfill their God-given role by empowering them to be passionate and effective in teaching faith to their children at home. We empower parents through our missional parenting discipleship track and our parents support groups to impart Godly parenting principles and practical skills needed to accomplish their Godly responsibility.

Restored Life

RESTORED LIFE seeks to provide holistic healing to individuals and families. We have both wholeness ministry and clinical counseling to address these deep issues with families, couples and individuals. In the wholeness ministry, we use an integrated approach – “Restoring The Foundations (RTF)” to provide a complete and systematic way to be healed, delivered and set free. In clinical counseling, we have associate counselors in church and full-time counselors at our counseling centre-Reach Counseling@Marymount to provide the needed professional help.

These resources cover a host of topics, from strengthening marriages, managing the home, effective parenting children and Christian living for individuals of all ages.

Marriage Preparation & Discipleship Programme


Synopsis
MPDP is a holistic marriage discipleship programme to prepare young couples as they enter into marriage. It is our desire to set them on the right foot as they start their life journey together. It is a 6 + 6 sessions programme providing couples with biblical and practical principles to build God-centered marriages. Marriage mentors will journey alongside them as they begin their marriage life.

It will be conducted in a small group session in a home setting (one marriage mentor to 2-3 pre-marital couples). The first 6 sessions of 2 hours each will cover topics like God’s intended purpose for marriage, managing conflicts, handling finances and others will be discussed and explored.

The other 6 sessions are couple mentoring sessions. Couples will continue to meet their marriage mentors for couple mentoring after they are married. These mentoring sessions provide a platform for continual discipleship, mentoring and support to newlywed couples.

Pre-Course Assignment

All registered couple is required to complete pre-marital assignment tool online called Couple Checkup. The Couples Checkup celebrates the different areas of strength and identifies the areas to be worked on to strengthen the marital relationship.
