May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We invite you to Moms Connected, a program for mothers of tweens and teens. We serve as a ministry to encourage, support and build connections with other women also in the stage of teen-age parenting.
Our Moms Connected morning includes informal social time, breakfast, an informative speaker and discussion groups. Join us for a relaxing morning and insightful wisdom on guiding your teen during this important stage of parenting!

When Your Kids Make Decisions You Don’t Agree With
Our kids are sure to make decisions we don’t agree with. While many are preference issues, some are moral issues, and a few may be legal. We must be ready to answer the question, “How will I respond when my child makes a choice I don’t agree with?”. Brenda Garrison will share what she learned in her own journey parenting her oldest daughter when faced with that question. We will take a look at how to respond to our teens’ decisions as the heavenly Father responds to us and build a bond that lasts a lifetime by developing a relationship that is open, honest, and loving despite the choices our teens may make. Brenda Garrison is an author and speaker who shares the truth of God’s word with women. Brenda has written four books including Love No Matter What: When Your Kids Make Decisions You Don’t Agree With and Queen Mom: Restoring Order in Your Home. Brenda and her husband, Gene, are the parents of three young adult daughters and live near Metamora, IL. She is currently pursing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Ministry Leadership with a concentration in Women’s Ministry at Moody Bible Institute.
Dates & Times: Thursday, March 27, 9:15 A.M. – 11:15 A.M.
Childcare: Childcare is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. To secure a spot we request the child be pre-registered one week in advance.
*Our childcare programs utilize an electronic check-in system that insures the security of the children in our care. Pre-registering your child will allow the process to go quickly. Each parent checks their children into the computer system and receives a one-time security badge. This security ID number is specific to your family and only good for the current program morning. Parents will need to present this ID number to the childcare workers in order to check children out at the end of the morning. All of our childcare workers are fully trained in childcare procedures and background checked.
Cost: Payable at the door: $6 for Mom only, $4 for the first child, $2 for each additional child.
Location: All programs will be held at First Baptist Church of Geneva’s West Campus – 3435 Keslinger Road, Geneva (the northeast corner of Peck and Keslinger).
Moms Connected Book Club starts February 7, 2014
