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.

February Recap

We had a great month of February with the MOMS! Our retreat was a restful and beautiful day with Betsy and Portland sharing their spiritual gifts and wisdom with us. Thank you to all who attended and we look forward to doing it again soon! Morning MOMS enjoyed some special guest facilitators and speakers who brought lovely new thoughts and wisdom to the group. In the evening, we continued our discussion of choosing love, practicing gratitude and also enjoyed some meditative coloring.

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!
