Frequently asked Questions
WHY SHOULD I JOIN MOM2MOM?
Mom2Mom was created for ALL moms in any stage of motherhood-pregnancy and newborns to high school and beyond. We offer the mothers of our community the opportunity for adult fellowship and friendship in an open and supportive environment. We typically meet twice a month on Friday mornings to listen to speakers share on various topics pertaining to parenting, personal development, and health/wellness to name a few, as well as the offerings of local organizations and even some crafts! And let’s be honest, motherhood is hard and sometimes we need a little break too- we schedule a monthly Mom’s Night Out event for just this reason! So what are you waiting for?! Complete the registration and come join us!!
IS MOM2MOM JUST FOR STAY-AT-HOME-MOMS?
Although our Friday morning meetings are most convenient for moms with flexible schedules, if you have kids, Mom2Mom is for you. In addition to our bi-monthly meetings, Mom2Mom hosts Moms' Nights Out, Couples’ Nights Out, and Family events that are open to all. And even if you aren’t able to make the morning meetings, we would still love to have you at ANY event that does work with your schedule!
WHAT ARE THE MEETINGS LIKE?
A typical meeting begins around 9:00 am and everyone gathers for announcements followed by a short ice-breaker activity. Between 9:15 and 9:30, our speaker or activity begins and wraps up around 10:45. We end meetings with a topic-related devotional and group prayer. Out of respect to our childcare workers, we ask that you collect your children no later than 11:00.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Mom2Mom is a non-profit organization, so while we don't collect a mandatory fee as your presence is much more important than your monetary contribution. If you ARE able to donate, your generosity is greatly appreciated as Mom2Mom runs solely on donations and there are costs associated with childcare, speakers, and activities.
I'M NEW TO THE GROUP AND AM NERVOUS ABOUT COMING ALONE. HOW CAN I FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE?
We've all been the “newbie” at one point or another, and it's daunting! Mom2Mom strives to make all moms feel welcome, whether they're coming to their first meeting or their 20th. Our leadership team and Mom2Mom regulars do their best to reach out to our new moms. In an effort to help facilitate conversations (and hopefully many friendships!), Friday morning meetings will include ice-breaker activities when time permits. And don’t hesitate to bring a fellow mom friend along with you!
I WAS OFFENDED BY A MOM2MOM TOPIC/SPEAKER. WHAT DO I DO?
We are all human and recognize this may happen from time to time. Mom2Mom strives to select speaker/topic choices that will build and enhance our confidence and knowledge as parents. While Mom2Mom does choose the topics, the opinions and experiences shared are those of the speaker’s ALONE. If you do have a concern to voice, please feel free to reach out to the director or any leadership team member so that a meeting can be scheduled to discuss your concerns.
HOW CAN I GET MORE INVOLVED?
Mom2Mom is always on the lookout for moms who are willing to donate their time and talents! Mom2Mom can't run without a dedicated leadership team, and we recognize the importance of fresh ideas and continual growth and development. Please contact our director if you are interested in a volunteering with Mom2Mom.
