"Making Our Mothering Significant"

MOMS Insidepage 2016
M.O.M.S. is a ministry of encouragement and support to mothers of all ages. We have moms in all stages in life, from moms of infants to mothers of high-schoolers. We meet twice each month during the school year to study God's Word, talk about issues we all face on a daily basis, share advice and experiences, while enjoying a light breakfast together. We end each meeting in prayer for the needs for each mom and her family. Our topics have covered such things as Biblical Discipline, Godly Women throughout History, Realities of Marriage and Ideas on Economizing. This year our theme will be "An Unbroken Circle" and our theme verse will be from III John 1:4, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth"

While we relax, laugh and cry together each meeting, our children are also learning. For homeschooling families we have a time for children ages 6 and up to use the Carroll Christian Library to complete assignments given by their mother. Art lessons are also available one meeting each month to this age group (free of charge). Children ages 3 – 5 enjoy a program where they hear Bible-based stories, have craft time, sing songs and have a snack. Nursery is provided for infants and children ages 2 and under. We have a wonderful group of volunteers who staff our children's program and provide a loving and safe environment.

M.O.M.S. meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month, beginning in September and continuing through May. We enjoy some special events throughout the year: Each January we have our “After Christmas Brunch” where we celebrate Christmas after all the rush is over. In the spring we have our Plant Exchange and finally we finish up each year with our “End of Year Tea” during the last meeting in May.
The new season of M.O.M.S. meetings will begin on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 and will meet here at the Church of the Open Door
in Rooms 417 and 418. Each meeting will begin at 9:30am and run until 11:30am on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month!
