Moms in the Making exists to support and encourage women on their journey to becoming a mom by sharing the hope and truth of God’s Word. One way we accomplish this mission is by hosting support groups, which meet twice a month.
Our Moms in the Making groups are for married women who, in partnership with their husband, are looking to expand their family. Whether you are taking a natural approach or pursuing treatments, adoption, foster care or a different route, you are welcome. All groups for our Fall 2023 semester will start in July and will go through December.
Our heart is to have a Moms in the Making group in every city, but since we don’t yet, we offer virtual groups for those women who don’t yet have any local support. Our virtual groups follow a similar format and cover the same curriculum as our local in-person groups.
You can learn more about each group as well as register below. If you have any questions about why there is a cost to register, you can visit our FAQ’s here.
We kindly ask that if you have an in-person group within 30 miles of you, you get plugged in locally as our heart is for in-person interaction, and spots are limited for our virtual groups.
Do you have a miracle baby at home? We encourage you to join one of our four Moms Made support groups so you can connect with other women who are also in the season of motherhood.
