Moms Groups

Moms Groups

Moms Groups are really the heart of the Beacon Moms community – an opportunity to build true friendships with other women who understand the craziness of life as a mom. We laugh, cry, pray, ponder, and support one another through all the ups and downs of motherhood. We set aside time in our busy lives to take a deep breath and take care of our spirits. We would love to have you join us!

Each group is a small community where mothers get to know each other in a real way while talking about parenting and life and God. Groups meet every two weeks, with a Fall Session running from mid September to mid December, and a Winter Session running from mid January through mid May. We even offer free, loving childcare for many of our group times!
