Dogwood Mom2Mom is a wonderful place where young moms gather each Thursday and receive love, support and mentoring from moms who are a little older and farther down the road of life.
From early September until the end of April, Mom2Mom meets in the Quest (Children’s Building) at Dogwood Church each Thursday morning from 9:30 – 11:30. We begin with a full breakfast each week, encouraging moms to visit around the tables, followed by a teaching time for the large group. Teaching is provided by M2M leaders, guest speakers and excellent DVD materials. The subjects covered all relate to how moms can become their best and find joy and contentment with themselves and as wives and mothers. Subjects covered include understanding the impact of birth order and personality types in the family, teaching children discipline and self-control, handling sibling rivalry, raising godly children in an ungodly culture, marriage and family issues, and many more.
M2M is not a Bible study but is a true mentoring ministry – doing life together and helping each other along the way. However, everything we do and teach is based on Biblical truth and it is our greatest joy when we can help moms come to know Jesus personally and/or grow in relationship with Him.
After teaching time each week, we have an hour in small group time, where a mentor-mom facilitates discussion on the subject of the day and leads the moms in her group to help and encourage each other. Small groups are formed according to the ages of children and ages of moms, in hopes that they are with others facing similar stages of life and challenges.
While Thursday morning participation is the heartbeat of M2M, other activities are a part of M2M each year. Bunco parties, lunches together, one-on-one visits, Barn party and Christmas get-togethers are just a few of the other opportunities that are a part of M2M.
At each year’s end we ask moms to evaluate the year and tell us what we can do better in the future. Their input helps determine plans for the following year. We consistently find two reasons women join M2M – they are looking to find good friends and they want help in becoming a good mom. Our goal is to help meet these needs in the best ways possible every year!
