MASTERING MOTHERHOOD is calling all church families!  We are in need of gently used toys and children’s tables/chairs for our childcare program starting Sept. 13. If you have wooden, plastic or easily cleanable toys/furniture for children from birth to age 4, could you donate them to our new ministry? Look for the box in the Wells Area. Questions? Please contact Di Krause by email or at 860.529.1575 x303.

ALSO Are you free Thursday mornings? Please consider helping us whenever possible by bringing in brunch items for mothers attending.

AND — We are in need of volunteer childcare workers—can you help us? We also have several positions open for paid, consistent childcare workers every Thursday from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. If you or someone you know (neighbor, friend, co-worker, etc) is interested and available please let us know ASAP!! 

Please contact  Di Krause by email or at 860.529-1575 x303 if you can bake something, or if you can assist with childcare from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. on any or all Thursday mornings — great opportunities to love on our community!

Mastering Motherhood is a ministry designed to meet the needs of mamas at all stages of motherhood and offers a reprieve from the hectic and demanding world of motherhood through faith, food, fun and friendship.

Every week there is free childcare, an incredible brunch, professional speakers, and parenting- and women-related small group book studies in a judgement free environment. Currently, there are two other Connecticut locations—Madison and Middletown.

At First Church, we are excited about this opportunity to minister to mamas in our local community as well as our church family. Both new and seasoned mothers are welcome. We hope this becomes a highlight of your week as we do life together. Elissa Rader and Ashley Price are serving as co-directors, under the auspices of Family Ministry and Pastor Todd, in partnership with Preschool Director Vickie Anderson. They would love to talk with you about this ministry.

Please consider fellowshipping with us this fall and inviting a friend or neighbor who would benefit from a Christian community of mothers. It could be an easy way to share the love of Christ with a fellow mama, regardless of her religious background or the age of her children.
