About MOMS

The Ministry of Mothers Sharing (MOMS) is a ministry for mothers at Holy Spirit to share their faith stories, experiences and traditions with other moms. Our Vision is to be a faith-filled ministry supporting and serving one another and our community with love, friendship, compassion, and laughter on our journey of motherhood.

All Saint's Day Gathering

The first Fall Festival to celebrate All Saint's day on November 1st was a huge success, and Sarah and Michelle would like to thank everyone who participated and helped make the event possible! We're already excited for our next gathering of families this winter. Good times were had by all, thank you Outreach Committee!

October Recap

We had a great month of October with the MOMS! Our devotions centered around saying yes and no to the many demands on our time and energy. We are working towards saying "yes" more to the people closest to us (especially our children) and saying "yes" to God, while saying "no" to some of the other demands on our time and energy that might detract from our relationship with God and our families. If you want to catch up with one of our recent devotions, here is a link!

If you want to read more about this topic, The Grace of Yes by Lisa Hendey is a great resource.

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 hspmoms@gmail.com if you have any questions before you attend your first meeting!
