Couples Connect Schedule

Couples Connect Open Support Group

May 20, 2024 | 6-8 p.m. at Midwood Baptist Church in Charlotte
The goal of this unique group will be to wrestle as a couple through the hard spiritual questions that arise in the midst of loss and trials. Each session we have a different characteristic of God to consider. We will provide a place that is safe to question, doubt and seek answers around your faith in God. This group is open to couples or individuals who have walked through pregnancy loss, infant loss or infertility – in the distant or recent past. No registration or RSVP necessary.

Show Honor

We acknowledge your grief, and want you to feel seen, known and surrounded. If you have lost a child, we will say their name. We design environments where conversation about them is normal. If you are longing for a child that has never come, we will make room for you to voice your disappointments and your dreams. We will bring in the community so that no one is walking alone. We acknowledge your loss, we honor your family, and we want others to know how to do the same. Click below to see a few ways we hold up this piece of our mission.

We envision being surrounded by a community of believers who supports the rebuilding of a family following a pregnancy loss or infertility discovery. 

Provide Help

We know that nothing will mend the heartbreak and disappointment you are facing on the heels of loss – whether through loss of a child or a recent discovery of infertility. The road ahead is long, and the obstacles are great. We also know that the medical bills arriving in your mailbox are yet another unwelcome reality of your grief journey – one that can add stress and marital tension. We can help. Parents can apply for one of our Medical Bill Relief Grants, which will help offset related medical expenses, so you can get back to the hard work of healing.

Name a grant in memory of a child

Our grants are named in memory of a child or in honor of a family who has walked through a loss. When a grant recipient receives the acceptance letter, we will share the name and story of the child the grant was named for. Naming a grant for your child or as a gift to another family requires a one-time donation of $2,000+ or a monthly donation of $200/mo+.

Stay in touch

Restore Hope

Our ultimate goal with Out of the Ashes Foundation is to help restore hope in each grieving parent and couple who comes through our ministry. We believe that ultimate healing will come only from a renewed and deepened relationship with our Creator. He is the living water that does not run dry. He restores. He refreshes. He redeems. And it is from this hope that long-term healing can make a home in a broken heart.

Connect to a Local Church

If you are looking for a church home, we’ve listed a couple here that have invested – with finances, resources and time – into this specific community. They each have a heart for service, connection and a growing understanding of the Word of God in the hearts of their people.
