Dear Women of Faith Community Bible Church,
First of all, let me state that this letter is for ALL women in our body- so if you begin to read and think it’s not for you, keep reading!
I am so thrilled to tell you that FCBC is launching a group for moms of young children that will be starting after the new year. This email is to invite you to an informational meeting that will be held Tuesday evening, November 14th, at 6pm at the church. Childcare will be provided so that those with younger kids can attend.
The plan right now is to have a get together one morning a month where moms with kids 5 and under come and relax in a safe and comfortable environment where childcare is provided. Moms will have the opportunity to “tank-up” their social, emotional, and spiritual wells, which are so often running on empty at this stage of motherhood. My hope is that through this group the moms of Faith would share real community with one another. As we are fortified, I hope we will be able to reach out to moms in the places where we “do life”- and invite them to encounter an authentic community that places Christ in the center of all that we do.
Women in our body who are not mothers of young kids have the opportunity to make a big difference in this ministry!
First of all, we will have guest speakers who will come and share with the group on a one-time basis. I would love to have some ladies volunteer to speak on topics close to their heart- from parenting advice to cake decorating or your personal testimony-. I know we have many skills in our body, and I want you to come share your knowledge or hobby with our group!
I am also looking for some experienced mothers who could come to monthly meetings and be a Table Group Leader-someone who facilitates discussion and leads a smaller group of moms in prayer - this again could be on an occasional basis or every month.
Additionally, I am hoping to have between 1-3 Lead Children’s Teachers that would commit to being at each monthly meeting and would be paid to offer consistent care and a warm welcome to the children who come. I am also looking for women who would be willing to volunteer on a one-time or occasional basis to help with caring for children.
Finally, I am looking for some moms of young kids who are willing to be involved in the minutiae of this mom’s group. There are four positions that I am hoping to fill- Publicity, Caring, Secretary, Treasurer.
If you are unable to attend the meeting on November 14th, but are interested in sharing your thoughts or hearing more, I am including my contact information below and I hope you will get in touch with me. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I hope to see you on the 14th!
In service to Christ,
