Moms Together

  • WFC Lenexa

Start Date | Wednesday, January 18 through May 3
Meeting Times | 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 9:15-11:15am

Moms Together is a group for moms of all walks of life, in all stages, of all ages, to join in community with one another. We want to support, encourage and empower moms to grow in order to be better for our families and for ourselves. 
 
Each meeting will include eating an uninterrupted hot breakfast, time to catch up and unwind with other moms, listening to an encouraging message about topics from everyday life, and a discussion with a small group of women about how those things are relevant in your life.
 
We want every mom to come as they are, whether in sweatpants or a prom dress, and know that there are other women who are currently in your walk of life or have been there and can help walk you through. We hope that you will come and enjoy building friendships with other moms just like you! 

Cost- $65/semester w/ childcare*
