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!

Thirty years ago a group of United Methodist women recognized the need to bring restorative justice to women and children suffering because of incarceration. Guided by scripture and following United Methodist social principles, this group of women, working together with prison officials, developed Ministry to Incarcerated Families and began to nurture and support women at Topeka Correctional Facility.
Currently, almost 900 women are incarcerated there with the average age being 29 – 49 years old; over half are mothers. The ministry began with parenting classes embracing the goal of strengthening family bonds in spite of separation. Today in addition to parenting classes, volunteers fund and attend “Retreats”, an opportunity for mothers and grandmothers to spend the day with their children in a more family-friendly environment, play on a playground, hug, and laugh. At the end of the day, each child leaves with a gift bag filled with items selected just for them and always – a stuffed animal.
Data shows that providing the tools for better family relationships and successful parenting has led to a reduction in recidivism rates, thereby reducing the typical continued incarceration cycles. Women at Church of the Resurrection now have opportunities to serve with and donate to the Ministry to Incarcerated Families:
