MIA is a group for moms to come to for community, rest, encouragement and Biblical mentorship. It is open to all moms, but the majority of our members are moms of babies, preschool and elementary aged kids. We meet two Monday mornings a month and childcare is provided. We hope you will join us! Email email@example.com for more information.

Is there childcare?
Childcare is provided for babies six weeks through preschool age children. When you register, we ask that you indicate how many children you plan to need childcare for. In August, we will do official childcare registration because we know preschool plans often change over the summer. Then, before each meeting, we will send out a link to register for that meeting so that we can have accurate staffing. Of course, we understand that sickness and unforeseen circumstances will arise, but we try to do our best to plan for each meeting.
How much are dues?
Registration fees are $50 per semester to cover various meeting expenses, speakers and a t-shirt for each member. We will send out a spring registration link in late fall.
Are we assigned to a specific table for the year?
Yes, you will be assigned a table before the first meeting, but don’t worry! You will be able to request a friend to sit with if you’d like. This will help facilitate conversation, deepen relationships and build trust with a small group of moms. Tables will be led, in partnership, by a mentor mom and a member of our MIA Leadership team. Mentor moms are slightly more seasoned moms who have a bit more experience and wisdom to share. These moms have been called to serve our ministry and pour into our members. They will lead conversation, provide mentorship and prayerfully lead our members at each meeting.
What will a typical meeting look like?
Most meetings will consist of breakfast, hearing from a speaker and discussion with your table. We are working hard on a fabulous line up of speakers for the 2021-2022 year! We will hear from a variety of speakers ranging from Biblical teaching and encouragement and raising Godly children to various topics of interest to moms such as health, marriage, parenting, child growth and development, developing traditions, etc.
Can I bring my baby with me to the meetings?
Yes! Babies may begin going to the nursery once they are six weeks old. Until then, you are welcome to bring them with you to the meeting. We do encourage new moms to begin leaving babies in the nursery around 4 months old.
What if I must miss a meeting?
No problem! We hope you can attend most meetings, but if you have to miss, please just let your Table Leader and/or Mentor Mom know so that we know everything is okay with you.
Are there other events besides the Monday morning meetings?
Yes! We try to host a play date once a month and several Moms Nights Out over the course of the year. We do hope that you join us for any and all events that you are able to attend! Keep an eye on the FB page and our IG account for updates. We also plan to send an email after each meeting with important dates and announcements.
