MOMS Ministry

MOMS (Mothers Offering Mothers Support) is a ministry of First Presbyterian Church for all mothers of children of all ages. Gather with other mothers for support, encouragement, Bible study, fellowship, and friendship. For working moms, stay-at-home-moms, and all moms in between! Come as your schedule allows; no need to attend every meeting or the entire meeting — let MOMS fit your busy life.   

MOMS FALL SCHEDULE

MOMS is relaunching with a small group model that fits your schedule! Join a group of fellow moms to share conversation about the joys and challenges of this season of life (or life in this moment). Each of us is busy with the day-to-day tasks, but we feel it is important for us to share life together and form relationships with one another. The small group model will help us offer more opportunities for MOMS to participate at different times of the day and locations that are convenient to you. To find out more, complete this form or reach out to Ann Nielsen or Robyn Michalove to connect with a group!

small group devotions: hospitality

These devotions/discussion guides are for your MOMS Small Group to use when you meet. The goal of the small groups is to allow for deeper connections through our shared experience of motherhood, growing in our faith, and support and care for one another. If you want a way to structure your time, you can use this as a guide. We imagine that this may take as little as 10-15 minutes or your entire time to go through this guide. We imagine this as a devotion that can center everyone, and we also recognize that moms also need time and space for conversation about their lives.

What is a Small Group?

The early church began with groups of people who worshipped together as a community of faith in large group settings (temple courts) and then gathered in small groups (house to house) for more teaching, fellowship, and service. Our hope is that this MOMS small group format will allow for deeper connections through our shared experiences of motherhood, growing in our faith, and support and care of each other.

Why Small Groups?

Each of us is busy with the day-to-day tasks, but we feel it is important for us to share life together and form relationships with one another. The small group model will help us offer more opportunities for MOMS to participate at different times of the day and locations that are convenient to you.

How Will These Small Groups Work?

  • Each small group commits to meet weekly 6 times within an 8-week session. There will be 3 sessions throughout the year.
  • Our focus this year is on Christian spiritual practices: hospitality, living in community and joy.
  • Geography and schedule will inform the creation of the small groups.
  • Once small groups are formed, each group will determine their meeting location and time.
  • We will host large group gatherings every 8 weeks where all MOMS small groups will have the opportunity to gather for things like: cooking, yoga, painting.
  • They are open groups, up to 10 people in a group.
