During each meeting, a different speaker will present on a topic related to motherhood so that you are equipped to navigate all the new adventures in parenting. You will be placed in a small group where you can build a community of moms in your similar phase of life, and you will be led by a mentor who will guide discussion and support you through the challenges you face throughout the week!
Preschool & Elementary School
Leader: Shela-Lyn Boxberger
In this class, you will receive practical teaching tips and tools to implement in your home with your preschool and elementary-aged children. You will be placed in a small group of moms, led by a mentor, where you will build community through discussion and application. Each class will have a different program which will include Q & A panels with experts in parenting, counseling and education, and presentations from moms with older children who will share their experiences and wisdom gained from challenging issues in their lives. You will leave each week with helpful tools, “how-to” suggestions, laughter, encouragement, and new friends!
Preteens & Teens
Leader: Gail Schuknecht
Feeling unsure about your role as the mother of a teen/preteen? The use of technology, sex and dating, family rhythms and communication, education, faith…if any of these topics are raising stress levels in your home and uncertainty in your heart, we have a safe space for you to listen, question, and be heard, seen, and encouraged. You will be placed in a small group with a mentor to lead discussions and provide guidance throughout the year. Our format will include various expert presenters on relevant topics, a time for sharing information, discussion, questions, and togetherness.
Special Needs Parenting
Leader: Carolyn Meyers
Has your parenting been unexpectedly interrupted by special needs? Have you entered a new way of life that you never saw coming? You are not alone. Join a delightful group of moms who are walking a similar journey. Dive into hope as we read through Unbroken Faith and other resources to encourage and uplift you in your daily walk with God.

Grace Based Woman
Teachers: Amy Cavness & Sonia Cleverly
More than ever before, the world needs a counter-culture woman. A woman who seeks God’s wisdom for her marriage and parenting and for the intentional role she plays in her home. A woman who firmly roots her very identity in Him. The Grace Based Woman class is a place for moms of any age and stage to gain insight and encouragement into God’s call to a counter-culture life that aligns our heart to His, transforms our family, and reflects Him to the world. Join us!
Spiritual Disciplines for Moms
Teacher: Jessica Neill
Do you desire to dig deep into your relationship with the Lord in new ways? This year, we will be spending time learning about different spiritual disciplines and applying them to our lives. We will also look at how to creatively share the same disciplines with our children, building a foundation for their own walk with the Lord! We invite you to join us for a season of spiritual growth!
Coping Skills for Moms
Teacher: Gina Yanovitch
If you are struggling with a life issue, learning some valuable coping skills can be the answer! We invite you to this new MORE for Moms class led by licensed professional counselor Gina Yanovitch, who has put together a set of skills that will help moms cope with life, relationships, and understanding ourselves. Together, we will learn such skills as radical acceptance, getting over resentments, self-awareness, active listening, and many more. And the best part is, every one of these skills can be found in Scripture, so we can be confident they work! Come and learn and remember the promise of Proverbs 4:23 – “Above all else guard your heart for everything you do flows from it.” (This is a lecture-based class, no small groups)
In View of God’s Mercies by Courtney Doctor
Leaders: Nancy Pearce & Tracee Williams
In this Bible study on the book of Romans, Courtney Doctor will walk you through Paul’s powerful letter to see the glorious grace and transforming work of the gospel. You’ll be overwhelmed with the good news of God’s merciful rescue as you better understand the depth of your need. This life-changing message provides not only hope for eternity, but purpose, joy, and peace for today. And as the good news of the gospel of grace unfolds through Romans, it will compel you to proclaim God’s glorious salvation to all. This study will have light homework.
Alpha for Moms
Leader: Taffee Brunell
Do you ever ponder life’s big questions? What is my purpose? What happens when I die? Why is there suffering? How can I find peace in my day to day? Are you skeptical or curious about your faith? Do you have major doubts about faith? We begin to explore these big questions, together! Alpha for Moms is a place where you can come to be with other moms who are experiencing the ups and downs of motherhood. We gather as a community and have a series of conversations about life, spirituality, and faith in a fun, non-judgmental, and safe environment. If you want to talk about the real issues of life as a mother, a wife, and a woman as a whole with new friends, this might be for you.

Leaders: Jolie Monea
Join us as we study Galatians 5:22-23. Each week we will study a different Fruit of the Spirit while we engage with the scriptures through art journaling and creative response. Come study scripture and learn new ways to connect with God’s Word creatively.
