Imagine…a place that meets you right where you’re at as a mom, a woman and a friend.
Building Better Moms (BBM) strives to build a community of moms who learn, grow and serve together. BBM members meet together in a larger group setting, but are connected with a small group of moms who share a table at each BBM meeting throughout the year. The BBM calendar follows the school calendar year, beginning in September and concluding in May. The schedule is set to align as much as possible with area school and holiday schedules. BBM meetings run about two hours in length and each group meets approximately twice a month to enjoy food and fellowship, speakers and group discussion. All groups also participate in mission projects supported by The Church of the Resurrection and occasional social events outside of the meeting schedule.
Imagine… you’re here!

Stillness of Winter Reading Plan:
Wise Women of the Bible
Some days, a life of faith comes so easily. Other days, faithful living feels like it’s at the bottom of the “to-do” list. If these words describe your reality, then you’ve got a lot in common with folks in Scripture. It turns out that God uses humans, frail and flawed as we are, to do holy work. Join us as we look at some wise (and flawed) women from Scripture whose courage, strength, and, yes, wisdom changed the world. As we study and talk together, you just might find that you bear a striking resemblance to them. (Note: While you are welcome to attend all four weeks, these sessions are designed to be standalone, so that you can attend the ones that fit your schedule.)
Thursdays, January 12 - February 2 | In person 9:30am B206 & Online 7pm Zoom
