Mom life

Mom Life 2017-2018

September 22nd - May 18th, 2018


Mom Life is a unique ministry designed specifically for moms of children from birth through 3rd grade. Its mission is to help mothers connect with mothers while learning life-changing truths from God’s Word.

One meeting is a large group setting where we will hear from other women on topics relevant to our lives. The other meeting is a small group setting where we will be given the time and opportunity to build relationships with Jesus and other women as we lean on one another for support and personal spiritual growth.

Sometimes, you just need a word of encouragement or wisdom from someone who has been there. That is the role of our Mentor Moms who will be your small group leaders. They will be your guide throughout the year. and hopefully a lifetime!

Each meeting your child will learn and have fun too! Grace Kids Care will be loving on your child while you have some much needed mommy time. Your children learn biblical principles through age-appropriate lessons, crafts, songs, and games. We strive to engage children in fun, interactive activities that will help them understand how the Bible applies to their lives. Our team is trained and background checked for safety.

Mom Life meets at Grace Bible Church on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from 9:15a to 11:30a beginning September 22nd. Cost is $35 per semester and is due at registration.
