In this season when we’re aiming to reach more young adults, we want to take advantage of one of our most valuable assets: older, healthy, God-following adults/couples.
The goal of this new program is to pair young married couples with older married couples to give them space to be open and honest about their struggles, give them time to ask candid questions, and provide a listening ear to encourage them through marriage/parenting/career/financial/etc. struggles.
The first step of this program is a one-time event:
- The older couple will cover the cost of a meal at a local restaurant.
- The church will provide childcare reimbursement for the younger couple.
Our hope is that meaningful relationships will form over time, but at this time, there is no long-term commitment for either couple. This is a first step that we hope to develop in various avenues over time as part of the New Day.
If you’re interested in being a mentor couple (for a one-time meal) or being mentored, please sign up below. The First MB staff will pair you with another couple, and a meeting will be scheduled soon after.
