Mom to Mom

There’s no such thing as “just” a mom. Despite the routine tasks and mundane to-do lists, motherhood is anything but insignificant. God has designed motherhood as part of His greater plan to draw people to Himself--instilling in all women, where called to traditional mothering or not, with an eternal pupose in nurturing others. This is a group for mom's of children from babies all the way to high schoolers.

First Thursday of each month starting October 4th from 6:15 - 8:15 p.m. Cost $20. Childcare is available for a minimal cost. Contact Lee at or 661-332-2678 or sign up under the awning.
