Welcome to Minis & Me at Lancaster Alliance Church!
We invite all mothers either expecting a baby or mothers of young children (age birth through Kindergarten) to join us at Minis and Me!
Our members come from all different backgrounds, but this phase of life brings similiar needs and a common shared desire - to be the best mothers we can be for the little ones God has given us. We know that He values motherhood and that mothers of preschoolers need a village to hold them up and surround them.
What to Expect:
- Meet 2 Tuesday mornings a month from 9:15am-11:15am
- Share a yummy breakfast together
- Hear from guest speakers, curated videos, and mentor moms
- Participate in creative activities (crafts)
- Build relationships with other moms
- Dive into what God's word says about motherhood
- Enjoy some "Me Time" while our children have fun in our age-specific "Minis" program
- Small group & large group "activities" aka opportunities to talk and get to know each other
You will also receive support from a wonderful community of moms and mentor mamas in our Facebook group, which is open to registered members.
Throughout the year, we will spend time learning and discussing together what it looks like to "Consider It Joy." Our passage of scripture that we will focus on for the year is found in James 1.
"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4
Whether it's through hardships, losses, victories, or blessings, true joy is only and always found in Christ. He wants to do a life transforming work in our lives as mothers, and invites us to follow, fellowship and rest in Him to experience abundant life with Him.
