Sharon, a staff member New Day Pregnancy Care Center, explains how this weekly mentoring program helps moms prepare for the birth of their child and conveys the message of Jesus Christ:
“One morning each week, a group of Loving Moms come together at Christian Life Ministries’ New Day Pregnancy Care Center for support and learning.
From week to week, we focus on a variety of different topics of importance to moms and families, like personal finances and budgeting, positive relationship building or practical skills for living. Whatever the subject, application to God's Word is always made. A devotion is read that pertains to the focus of the week.
“This Loving Moms class also serves as an incentive program for our moms. As they attend classes, they are able to earn "Mom Money" to spend on diapers and wipes, thrift store vouchers or to save for something larger they really need or want (like a crib, portable pack-and-play, etc.).
“But this group gives its members so much more than parenting skills, baby care supplies and supportive new friendships formed with other moms. These women also receive comfort from God’s Word and learning about the hope we have as Christians.
“Our Loving Moms classes are a wonderful way to share God's Word with those who may never have heard about the love of Jesus our Savior. We’ve seen how the moms in turn bring this ‘good news’ home to their families.”
Volunteer teachers for this class are always needed and appreciated.We can supply the topic and the material, or volunteers are invited to present their own material.
