"Sanctuary" Wednesday morning prayer
Starts: 7:30 am
Ends: May 27, 2015 - 9:30 am

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 28, 2015 - 11:30 am
Description: What is Mom to Mom?
If you are a Mom and you would like a place where you can connect with other Moms and share your story while getting to know theirs, then boy do we have a group for you! Mom to Mom is a group that meets weekly (when Seattle public schools are in session) on Thursday mornings. We are all trying to do our best job as moms while also taking care of ourselves and balancing our other roles/demands. We seek to support each other on this wonderfully challenging journey of motherhood so whether your kids are 2 or 12 you are welcome to drop in at any time.

What will be the focus?
Our focus for the next few months will be on developing and sharing our stories with one another? What has been your journey up to this point? It is important to remember where you have been and to gain perspective on how you are learning and growing. Kara Jones will be leading us in this endeavor.

Give me the deets so I can invite all the Moms I know:
Childcare is available from 9:30-11:30 for ages 0-5 for $4 per child (or $2/hr/child). But there will also be an extra time of informal mingling 15 minutes before and after the meetings while we are setting up and cleaning up so feel free to come early or stay late. We usually have time before the close of meetings to share needs and to pray for each other so please let your mom friends know that they are welcome to join in that prayer time if they'd like some prayer even if they themselves don't feel comfortable praying aloud. Also, you are always welcome to come to just part of any meeting if you are unable or simply don't have the energy to be there for the whole thing. Looking forward to this year's journey together!
