What is Moms Connect?
We are a casual group of mothers who come together to learn from speakers and one another. We support each other through challenges and joys of parenting. Our children range in age from newborns through young school-age children.

When and where does Moms Connect meet?
We meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month between September and May, from 9:30-12:00 noon, in the CE Lounge (located in the nursery hallway). Occasionally we have special activities such as Saturday play-days or evening "Moms' Night Out".

Is there childcare?
We provide childcare in the FPCH Nursery, located on the east end of campus across from the Playground and Mears Family Life Center. The nursery opens at 9:30 and closes at 12:00 noon.

Is there a cost?
There is no cost the first time you come to Moms Connect – just come and enjoy your morning with other moms! To cover our speaker fees and Childcare worker costs we do ask each mother to contribute $55 per semester. If this cost is prohibitive, please discuss your needs with the Moms Connect Coordinators.

Who do I contact if I have more questions?
For more information, please contact the Director of Children's & Family Ministries:
