Full Life

grow, heal, learn & enrich

We desire everyone to experience the full life Jesus invites us into. Our full life ministries meet people where they are at in order to grow, heal, learn and enrich their life. These ministries express our values and strategies while offering connection through special interests, life needs, and seasonal opportunities.

Emotional Resilience

Living with the Fruit of the Spirit is a journey that many others before you have taken and can testify that it works. The principles that you will learn in our program will help you live in a way you have never lived before. ER is not a self help program, a positive thinking technique or a quick fix. Emotional resilience is learned through weekly group meetings, exercises, mentoring and a deep and nurturing devotional life. Over time, you will see significant and lasting change in the way you react to life, relate to others and regulate your emotions. It becomes a way of life.

Starting Tuesday, October 20th at 7:00PM, we will be restarting Emotional Resilience – live!!!

We will practice healthy social distancing in the completely sanitized Chapel. Come learn how you can bounce back from painful emotions and live in emotional freedom. Classes are lively, fun and full of fellowship—a safe, friendly environment where you can be yourself. Taught by the program author, pastoral counselor and Recovery Coach, Ronald Ovitt

 

Food Drive

Like everyone else, the MVC Food Drive is adapting to a new format during this season of change. If you regularly participate in supporting the food drive through your donations, please understand that we cannot take donated food during the Covid-19 days. Instead, the best way to continue your participation is by donating to the MVC Food Drive fund.

Our Food Drive team is coordinating with those in need to shop and deliver their groceries so that everyone can remain safe.

If you, or someone you know in the MVC body, is in need of assistance from the food drive please complete the attached form. The Food Drive committee will coordinate the rest.

Financial Peace

What would you do if you were totally free of debt? What would be different if you could stop living paycheck-to- paycheck? How could building a solid strategy for saving or emergencies change your future?
Maybe you made a money-related goal this year. Maybe you heard about Financial Peace or Dave Ramsey on the radio. Maybe you’re at a major life change or even crisis. No matter your current situation, the class will give you practical steps you can begin taking right away. MVC is currently not offering a FPU Class.

Prayer Team

The intentionality of a fervent prayer life is key to knowing God on a deeper, more intimate level. On Sunday morning we invite you into an intentional prayer opportunity either before the service with Pastor Pat and others or during the service with Elders and Deacons. Before the Service – A group of brothers and sisters join Pastor Pat for a short time of prayer each Sunday morning. You are encouraged to bring your prayer life to a new level with this intentional step for the body at Moraine.
The most difficult moments in our lives often come after the loss of a loved one. At Moraine Valley we know that the value of authentic community can be so helpful through this difficult season.Grief Share is a caring group of people who will walk alongside you as a partner on your road to healing. Grief Share meets weekly for thirteen consecutive weeks. Each Grief Share session has three distinct elements: a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery, support group discussion, and a workbook for personal study and reflection. Grief Share meets Friday nights from 7PM-PM in room 121

DivorceCare is a biblically-based, Christ-centered, 13-week DVD-based ministry program.  It offers a safe place to help people who are experiencing separation and divorce find help for the hurts, hope for the future and to experience God’s healing power. Many issues will be addressed, such as: facing your anger, loneliness, financial survival, kid care, and forgiveness—to name just a few. Whether you’ve been separated only one day or divorced for 20+ years, this is a great place to start your healing.

You will hear from nationally recognized Christian experts in the field of divorce and recovery. You will receive a guidebook to be used while viewing the video presentations; and you will be connected to a small group for discussion time following the video. We currently do not have a Divorce Care program being offered at this time.
