“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of the when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise.” Deuteronomy 6:5-7
PURPOSE: Mommy and Me is a Biblically centered group providing opportunities for young moms and their preschool children to grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
DESCRIPTION: Mommy and Me provides mentoring and encouragement to the young moms of Tri-City Bible Church as they connect with other moms of preschoolers to give Bible based, Christ centered instruction for their children, under the direction Karolyn Cooper (Lead), Lynnie Kooker and Madonna Griesemer. This group will provide weekly opportunity for moms to meet together with their preschool children. Moms will lead their children in learning hymns and Bible stories, making a craft and learning basic preschool tasks, all based on the particular Bible theme for the week.
DAY: Mommy & Me will begin Friday, October 13, 2017 and meet the first 3 weeks of each month through May 18, 2018. We'll break for the Christmas holiday after our December 15th meeting and resume on January 5, 2018.
TIME: Meetings will be from 10AM to 12noon in the Ministry Room at Tri-City Bible Church.
ELIGIBILITY: This group is open to moms who are members or approved regular attenders of Tri-City Bible Church. Children ages 0-4 years may participate.
COST: There will be a $20 per family fee to cover the costs of materials. Please pay cash or check payable to "Tri-City Bible Church" to Masako Takagi. Scholarships are available and confidential. Please state your need on the registration form.
