"Sanctuary" Wednesday morning prayer
Starts: 7:30 am
Ends: May 4, 2016 - 9:30 am
Location: Sanctuary
Description: "Sanctuary" Wednesday morning prayer - Rather than having a guided prayer meeting, we will be opening up the sanctuary of the church from 7:30 -9:30 am every Wednesday for people to come freely and spend time with God in quiet prayer. The sanctuary will be set up to foster that sense of quiet and solitude, and you are invited to come spend as much or as little time as you would like. Contact: Pastor Mark Nsimbi

Mom to Mom
Starts: 9:30 am
Ends: May 4, 2016 - 11:30 am
Description: This year's theme for Mom to Mom is Counting Blessings, Collecting Memories. Motherhood is an incredible season of life with so many remarkable things happening all the time. The hardest thing about it is we have little to no energy or time to reflect and collect. This year we will spend a little time at the beginning of each meeting writing down a special memory or something that was life-giving that week. We will share these with each other, and we will hang onto these so that we can look back at them later.

Also, we have decided that this year we will try to make time for all the things we love about Mom to Mom by having a monthly rotation. In any given month we will try to have one meeting devoted to each of the following:

- Our own personal growth (spiritual, relational, emotional, etc.)

- Creative and fun expression (usually a craft of some sort, but if Judy leads it it might be a game day)

- Our growth as parents

- An extended time of sharing and praying

We will rotate leadership so you can choose whether or not you'd like to lead a craft day, or a sharing time or if you are reading/learning something you'd like to share that would speak to our personal growth or our growth as parents. If you are looking for a good book to read, Arlene had some great resources.
