Who says motherhood is all work and no play? Get involved in a Mothers' Support Group (MSG) and enjoy many of the great activities planned for the year. The new season kicks off in September each year, with activities such as Bible studies and dinners out, but new members are welcome to join at any time.
Motherhood is both an exciting and challenging time. Participating in an MSG can provide you with Christian parenting resources and the chance to build community in a small group setting.
The VPC Mothers' Support Group (MSG) is made up of women who have children ranging from infant to college age. Some of the exciting things the VPC Mothers' Support Group has done during the past year include:
- speakers on organization, nutrition, time management, discipline,
- Bible studies,
- book discussions,
- mom's night out,
- happy hours,
- and volunteer activities.
Women do not need to be members of VPC to join. To get involved in a group, please contact Susan Skaggs (Membership) at 703-938-1074 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, we have one MSG for working moms on Wednesday nights.
Below are questions that our Membership person often receives.
How often do you meet?
Monthly. Additional dates are possible for a book group and/or Mom's Night Out.
What do you do at the monthly meeting?
We have a devotional followed by fellowship, a speaker, and then more time to get to know each other and help us with our challenges.
How long is the monthly meeting?
Usually two hours. Child care is available for kids under age 6 in the church nursery. If you have an infant that is less than four months and is quiet during the meeting, you can usually keep the infant with you.
Do you have a playgroup?
Probably not. Ask the leader of your group.
Do I have to wait until Fall to sign up?
No. Members can join any time of year.
How do I sign up?
Complete and submit a sign-up form at the bottom of the page. Someone will be in contact with you soon afterward.
What happens after I sign up?
Your information is given to the co-leaders of the group. Then a co-leader will contact you with meeting information and the member directory for that group.
