Moms Together (Formerly MOPS)

Moms Together – We are dedicated to encourage and teach moms, providing time for fellowship, sharing experiences, spiritual growth, and parenting support.  You are not “the only one” as it may seem when you are isolated.  Two “mentor moms” will also attend meetings to support you.

All moms are invited – Moms Together welcomes moms from all walks of life, from the time a mom is expecting her first child, throughout the mothering years.   We also invite those who are fostering children or caring for children under other circumstances.

There is no membership fee.  

Devotions – Each mom will be given a book titled The Songs of Jesus by Tim Keller.
This is a book with a short devotional for each day of the year.  We pray that moms will find time to read at least some of the devotionals.  During our meetings we will discuss anything that stood out to us or inspired us, etc. in the course of our reading.  You share only as you feel comfortable.

Refreshments - Moms take turns providing snacks, savory & sweet.  Beverages are also available.

Childcare: Your children will be cared for during the meeting.  You are welcome to keep your young babies with you if you prefer.
