Mommy and Us

Open to everyone, though they must be aware that the group will be discussing spiritual matters in a biblical perspective. We believe that encouragement comes in various forms - emotional, physical and spiritual.

No statement of faith is required.
No fee.

For now all form of contact is via e-mail or phone. Please tell us a little about your group and its mission: We seek to encourage moms with more than one child. At this point, we're targeting moms with children at or under age six. Through bible study and then fellowship time we should find encouragement and support in raising our kids. After the brief bible study, I hope all moms could mingle and find ways to help one another in teaching each other's kids. I strongly believe it takes a community to raise a child and so the setting is set in that tone. I believe that God is three in one (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and take from that the importance of not being alone in the mission of raising kids that are smart both in intellect and moral character.
