If you have little ones, we get you! We have two groups, MOPS and MomsNext, to give you a safe place to chat, relax, and refresh your spirit with other moms who are experiencing the same season of life that you are. After a year spent hunkering down, living smaller, it’s the time for fresh starts and turning ordinary experiences into extraordinary ones. Enthusiasm will replace worry. Friendship will replace loneliness. No longer will we wait to “get back to normal”; instead, we will start making space for the new things God has for us. We will become less guarded and more daring because this is our year to live All For Love.
