The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor… Isaiah 61:1-2a 

Our mission is, "To mature women in Christ through authentic community.” We do this by connecting, nurturing and discipling women in their various life stages and spiritual pathways.

Rooted in the living and written Word, we influence the way women see and respond to Jesus in an environment where they can realize spiritual maturity and fellowship, develop their leadership skills and minister in the local church, their community and the world. Dedicated women are making a significant difference in our world by their commitment to devote their time, talents and resources to further the Kingdom of God. Won't you join us in the adventure?

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

Every other Thursday from 9:30-11:30am (Sept-May)

MOPS is designed to nurture mothers with children from infancy through kindergarten. The mission of our MOPS group (and MOPS International) is to provide moms with an opportunity to gather with other moms who are in the same stage of life, walk alongside each other, support each other and grow together as women. MOPS groups meet in churches throughout the United States, Canada and in 19 other countries. The women who participate are of many ages and backgrounds, but share the same desire... to be the best mothers they can be.

If you'd like additional information, please contact Bridget Vandeventer (Coordinator).
