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 “Designed With A Purpose” and our theme verse will be from Proverbs 24:3-4 "Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: 4 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.".
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.
