Dear Moms,

What mom doesn't need a fresh start? At REFRESH: A Community for Moms, refreshment is what we hope to give you. We want you to "press pause" on your busy days of mothering, and meet with us. Gather with us and find rest, be encouraged, make friends (for yourself and your kids!), be renewed in your faith, be equipped as a godly woman, be supported through the highs and lows of being a mom, and find hope to face each day. We hope that through fellowshipping with other moms, you will be filled to overflowing with Christ's love and power, uplifted and strengthened to persevere in raising the children God has placed in your care.

"Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you have refreshed the hearts of the Lord's people." (Philemon 1:7)

Upcoming Events:

REFRESH Meetings (large group)

We meet the third Thursday of each month, from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m., on "the Deck".
These large group gatherings feature brunch, loving (free!)childcare, guest speakers on relevant topics, prayer and fellowship.

This season, our guest speakers will share wisdom from personal experience and Scripture about how to build moral character into our children's hearts. Proverbs 22:6 advises: "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." We find hope in this verse, that our children will be salt and light in the morally ambiguous culture and times we live in.
