Family Ministries

The mission of the NNEC Family Ministries is to strengthen the marriages and families within our conference and to help our families “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18, NKJV)

We seek to do this through several avenues:

  • Sabbath morning sermons at our churches
  • Family Ministries weekends
  • Marriage enrichment seminars
  • etc. (Help us find more!)

If you would like to schedule a Sabbath morning sermon or a weekend event for this year, please contact us right away, as our calendar is quickly filling up.

We are here to serve you and look forward to working together!

Upcoming Events

We want to see you at these events!

Experience Summer Camp with the whole family! Swim, canoe, wakeboard, rock climb, disc golf, plus more. We are confident your family will enjoy the adventure!

Words of Encouragement

“Look at how good and pleasing it is when families live together as one!” (Psalm 133:1, CEB)

“Every Christian family should illustrate to the world the power and excellence of Christian influences.” (The Review and Herald, October 9, 1900)

“The home in which the members are kindly, courteous Christians exerts a far-reaching influence for good. Other families mark the results attained by such a home and follow the example set, in their turn guarding their homes against evil influences. Angels of heaven often visit the home in which the will of God bears sway. Under the power of divine grace such a home becomes a place of refreshing to worn, weary pilgrims. Self is kept from asserting itself. Right habits are formed. There is a careful recognition of the rights of others. The faith that works by love and purifies the soul stands at the helm, presiding over the entire household.” (The Signs of the Times, February 17, 1904)
