What is true moms?

TRUE Moms (Time to Refresh, Uplift, and Empower Moms) is for moms with young children who want to connect with new friends, enjoy inspiring conversations, discuss relevant topics -- and take a break from the daily routine.

TRUE Moms strives to serve the mother of young children in her pursuit of faith, fellowship, and support in her journey of motherhood. We do this in three key ways. We REFRESH her by offering a respite from the demands of motherhood. We do this by offering quality childcare, providing an inviting setting, and surrounding her in the comfort of friendship. We UPLIFT by offering words of encouragement, whether in scripture or devotion. We know it's difficult for moms to find time for Bible study, prayer, and reflection. We offer inspiring words and the quiet time to reflect. We also encourage moms to explore the scripture or words of devotion with her table. We EMPOWER moms by providing programming that will send her away with usable, practical knowledge and ideas. We will provide related resources whenever possible to help moms further explore a topic.

Our gatherings feature guest speakers on a variety of topics, plus service projects, discussions, and time for reflection. Childcare is provided. TRUE Moms welcomes all mothers of all faith backgrounds.

Join us this fall as we launch this new opportunity for moms in the johnson county area. we'll be waiting for you!
