J.A.M.– Just Among Moms

by Leila Griggs

Just Among MomsAs a mom, I’m always looking to network, meet and just chat with other moms. What a blessing when this can happen in a Christ-centered, nurturing, welcoming environment. JAM is a play date/ bible study for moms of children under the age of 5. We create a safe place to talk about what it means to be a mother and how scripture influences our daily life. Our children socialize while the moms chat about the ups and downs, the surprises and joys, and the love we have for our children through Christ. We meet at various locations meant for children one Saturday a month. It’s wonderful to make mommy relationships like this, but it’s even better to have and build a relationship with God Himself. His encouragement is what speaks directly to our soul.


Take a Holiday Breather

By Nancy Alley, Women’s Ministry

This is the time of year when women start to get nervous. The sense of being behind in almost every aspect of life pervades as we consider menus, relatives, Christmas cards, expectations, gifts to be bought, entertaining, bills to be paid and everything else. It is easy to get caught up in the anxiety of the season and I think it is an especially female affliction.Holly & Ivy

With that in mind, I suggest you consider starting your Christmas season with the Holly and Ivy Christmas brunch…it offers a time set aside to simply bask in the beauty of a festive setting, the joy of fellowship and the opportunity to hear a message that grounds us in the real meaning of Christmas. Oh, and we sing Christmas carols, too. If you are already starting to feel a little breathless (and even if you’re not) reach out and invite a friend and bring her to the Holly and Ivy Brunch at the Berkshire Country Club on Saturday December 5th from 9:00 to 11:00 AM. You will be glad you did. So will we!
