MUMS stands for Moms Uplifting Moms in the preschool years. We are Moms with kids from pregnancy through kindergarten age who want to encourage, nurture, and refresh one another, making our mothering substantial. MUMS is a resource for information on mommy-hood and a wonderful network for building relationships with other moms.

Immanuel Bible Church's MUMS meets once a month. We do not have childcare during our meetings; we love our kids, but this is a moms-only night (nursing infants are welcome, though). We have good desserts, great speakers, and quality time for round-table discussion in small groups. We have a wide range of ages, backgrounds, lifestyles, and children, but we all share a desire to be the best mothers we can be. Our speakers and our mentors are top-notch women who recognize how important the years from pregnancy through kindergarten are for kids and their moms. We also have special activities throughout the year, both for moms and for their young ones, helping build relationships with one another.

At a time when it is normal to feel tired, overwhelmed, and underappreciated, MUMS is a place where we can come together with other moms for friendship, support and encouragement! We hope you join us this year!

Meetings are held in Rooms A209-211 at Immanuel Bible Church, 7:30-9pm.

Meeting Dates

This Year's Theme: 

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
--Philippians 4:4-7

This upcoming year in MUMS we will be walking through what biblical joy in motherhood can look like. Philippians 4:4-7 offers a helpful framework for joy in the Lord through these years with our littles.  

As we spend time in Philippians and scripture each month, we will see how mothering’s twists and turns give us an opportunity to discover how knowing Jesus personally can change how we respond in challenging times and how we steward as mothers. The result of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is JOY. Always!
