Sarah and Jen
PS If you are new to our ministry, click here for general info and registration details.
Ashley is busy partnering interested mamas for a semester-long commitment to check in and pray for one another's intentions. This is open to all registered moms, even those who cannot regularly attend meetings. We hope that it will serve to strengthen bonds, allow you to connect with new friends, and grow in your prayer life.
All registrations for prayer partners should be done by Friday, October 7 by emailing Ashley or signing up at a meeting. If you missed this semester, don't worry! We'll partner again in January!
Prayer partners along with our current roster will go out to all registered members the week of October 10.
Prayer, Pumpkins and Pie
Thursday, Oct. 20th, 7pm
10350 Glaser Way
Please join us for a fun evening of crafts and fellowship! We'll have a brief prayer/devotion, a fun fall-themed prayer pumpkin craft and a dessert bar! You'll leave with some fun home decor and a new prayer activity to share with your children!
There are NO regular MOMS meetings scheduled for October 20 because of HSE Fall Break, so this will be the only gathering that week.
We'll each pitch in a dessert or treat to share, and also gather some craft supplies to decorate our pumpkins. Be on the lookout for an online signup for what to bring.
Can't wait to celebrate Fall with all of you! Let us know if you can make it so we can plan accordingly.
Meals on Wheels
even take your kids along. It's an easy, rewarding, charitable way to
help out our community. Kelly A. coordinates our monthly
volunteer commitment and would be happy to train anyone who missed our
initial training with Meals on Wheels. Just let Kelly know or comment
on the Volunteer Spot if you would like to help!! We are still in
need of drivers for upcoming dates!

A child care co-op is available at our morning meetings to make our ministry accessible to moms with young children at home. There is no childcare available at the evening meetings at this time, however, babies under 1 are welcome to come to the evening meeting with mom. If you would like to bring your children to our morning meetings, see information here.

What to Expect at a MOMS meeting
Our ministry is open to women with children of ALL ages. We have veteran mamas and brand new moms, and so much to share and learn from one another as we grow in faith!
Meetings start with an opening prayer and introductions, followed by a discussion on various topics related to our motherhood and our faith. Our time together wraps up with prayer intentions and a closing prayer. Attendance is not required every week to be a part of MOMs – just come when you are able.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions before you attend your first meeting!
