LILY Moms is a faith-based ministry that supports and builds community among mothers of children from conception through kindergarten. If you are pregnant with your first child or if your last child is beginning his/her kindergarten year, you are a LILY mom and we welcome you!
Fall 2022 | Beginning September 13
This year’s theme is Gather and Grow. At LILY Moms, we aim to gather together women in a similar stage of life and grow together. Grow in community. Grow as mothers. Grow as friends. We are inspired by Hebrews 10:24 “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” That’s what we hope to do at each meeting – to spur one another on in our journey of motherhood, to help one another grow. We hope you will join us and GATHER with other moms of littles and GROW.
LILY Moms follows the school calendar, September through May. We meet two Tuesdays each month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in St. Andrew’s Hall at First Presbyterian Church. Child care is available for moms who have preregistered, or visitors who have checked with a LILY Moms leader to reserve space for their child(ren).
Registration is Open
Annual registration is $60, or you can pay by the semester, $30 per semester. The registration fee covers local dues and child care.
You must register both yourself and your children (two separate registrations). If you would like to register now but are not able to pay in advance or would like to pay at the first meeting, please email LILY Moms. Need-based scholarships are available upon request (email for more information).
Why LILY Moms?
LILY is an acronym for “Life in the Little Years.” It fits us. This season of motherhood is full of messy moments and we are all learning to navigate what it means to raise small children. When we meet, we talk about topics that are related to this stage of our lives. We talk about how to care for our kids. Our homes. And ourselves. We talk about how we can love our husbands well (if we are married—single moms are welcome as well!) We also talk about how friendships look different during this season and how we can make sure that we have vibrant friendships even with spit up stains on our shirts and our eyes stinging from lack of sleep.
LILY Moms is not a Bible study. We will not ask you to bring a Bible or pray out loud. Many of our moms are open to spiritual things, but some are not church goers. That is okay. We welcome you! When we gather, we enjoy brunch. Uninterrupted. We talk to other adults and have a safe place to ask, “How did you get your child to sleep through the night?” Or, “How did you survive having a newborn and toddler?” We talk and connect and learn from others while our children are lovingly cared for down the hall.
LILY Moms. We hope you’ll join us! No one should journey through this season alone.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I attend a different church or don’t come to church? Can I still come?
Yes! You don’t have to attend a church, but there are several different churches represented in our moms who come.
