Each meeting provides an opportunity for spiritual and mental renewal as we explore topics that is important and relevant to Christian women and mothers of all ages.  Meetings commence with a group prayer and light refreshments, followed by a speaker or faith-focused discussion/activity, social time and closing prayer.


Speaker topics include marital or parent-child relationships, spirituality and more!
