Natural Family Planning

The Couple to Couple League is a non-profit organization that builds joyful marriages by teaching Natural Family Planning (NFP) couple to couple. NFP is a method for couples to discover a natural way to postpone or achieve pregnancy, proven to be 99% effective in postponing pregnancy, and used with considerable success by couples trying to conceive.

Although the Couple to Couple League is distinctly Catholic, we offers classes to any interested couple. Our Lansing chapter offers live on-site NFP classes in Lansing, Jackson, and Westphalia. These classes meet once a month for three months. The classes teach the Symptom-Thermal method of NFP and are rooted in the principles and practices of Pope St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body.

You can sign up today by going to Click on the register button and type in your zip code. We also offer live online classes or self-paced classes to make NFP easily accessible. If you take an online class, you will be connected with one of our local teaching couples for further support.

Once you take a class with the Couple to Couple League you will start receiving the Family Foundations Magazine. It is a great resource for families. If you have not taken a class, but would like to start receiving this awesome magazine, click here.

Interested in Volunteering?

The Couple to Couple League relies on volunteers to spread the word about natural family planning and how it can enhance and enrich Christian marriage. We are looking for new couples to become promoters and teachers. If you feel the Lord tugging at your heart, please contact us above to join us in this beautiful ministry.

Our Lansing chapter meets quarterly to organize our upcoming Natural Family Planning classes, outreaches, and events. We host an annual summer potluck for families to grow in fellowship with other families that are striving to live the Catholic Church's teachings on marriage and family life. We also order materials for the Chastity Project Display and keep it updated. We coordinate chastity speakers for the parish and the area to help families to grow in the virtue of chastity.

We have a Facebook page through which we can support each other. Contact Nicole Lavagnino above to be added as a member.
