Ministry of Motherhood (MOMs)

Moms and kids have a special bond. In the midst of sippy cups and bottles, we are constantly dealing with thirst. We need to be refreshed daily in our role as a nurturer. We gain strength through Christ's living waters as we gather together. Ministry of Motherhood (MOMs) is a group designed for mothers of children school-aged and younger. We meet every Thursday morning from 9:30 - 11:15 am. This group is a wonderful way to meet other moms, share common experiences, participate in service to others, attend group discussions and enjoy activities with your child.

Discussion

On the second and fourth Thursday of the month, MOMs is discussion-oriented. There is free childcare provided in the Nursery with a very qualified staff if you choose to use it. Some moms choose to keep younger babies with them during discussion and this is fine as well. It is a chance to share the challenges and victories of motherhood with other parents. We seek inspiration from each other through discussion, prayer and insight from group leaders, as we navigate the path of parenthood. We are a group committed to raising children in Christ’s love and care.

Sprout School: Mommy & Me Class

On the Thursdays that MOMs is NOT held (1st, 3rd and 5th Thursdays of the month), parents with infants through preschool age are welcome to come join the fun in a parent/child class! We will start with some open play, then move on to bible stories, crafts, songs and snacks. It will be a Sunday School-like class to share with your child at whatever level they are able. The class will meet from 9:30-11:15 am and is free. 

Girls' Night Out

Once a month, leave the kids at home with Dad and head out for a refreshing evening with the girls. We meet at local restaurants around 8:00 pm (or whenever you can get away) for dinner, drinks, dessert, or simply a cup of coffee. We all need an evening out once in a while!

Mission Projects

We do several Mission Projects throughout the year. There is childcare provided on these days if needed. We are planning on putting together gift baskets for new moms in the church, attending the WinGS Christmas Tea, making Valentine cards for church members in need of some love, and making pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer which brightens spirits of hospitalized children.
