MIAMI - New Jerusalem Ministry is offering married couples a unique opportunity to say "I Do" all over again.
Through its "I Do Renew" initiative, NJM will provide couples with preparation courses administered by certified marriage mentors. Couples who complete the courses will take part in a special vow renewal ceremony at the church in the presence of their invited guests.
It's all free, with dinner and childcare included.
In a world where divorce seems to be the norm, we feel charged with doing our part to help married couples renew their commitment to each other and their families," said Daniel and Mayte Cordones.
The couple, who have been married for 18 years, are both pastors at NJM.
I Do Renew will take couples who desire to further invest in their marriage on a journey of rediscovery, where they will find their union is special and deserving of celebration. We are starting off in the Kendall community, because it is where we live and serve," the Cordones' said.
Starting on Friday, Sept. 27th, couples will gather every Friday at 7 PM for the 5-week marriage renewal preparation courses.
The courses will take place at NJM, located at 5400 SW 122nd Avenue in Miami.
The ceremonies will take place Sunday afternoons beginning in November.
