LILY Moms is a faith-based ministry that meets at Kiokee Baptist Church that supports and builds community among mothers of children from conception through kindergarten.
If you are pregnant with your first child or if your last child is beginning his/her kindergarten year, you are a LILY mom and we welcome you!
Our LILY Moms group meets in Kiokee’s Small Fellowship Hall two Tuesdays each month from 10am to 12pm from September until May. Childcare is available for moms who have preregistered, or visitors who have checked with a LILY Moms leader to reserve space for their child(ren).
Registration forms are available online here. The annual cost is $40 and covers local dues. Childcare is included in that fee and no extra money is required to come. Need-based scholarships are available upon request. Dues can be paid at our first meeting on September 12th via cash, check (made payable to Kiokee Baptist Church with “LILY Moms dues” in the subject line), or card via Square.
Why LILY Moms?
LILY is an acronym for “Life in the Little Years.” It fits us. This season of motherhood is full of messy moments and we are all learning to navigate what it means to raise small children. When we meet, we talk about topics that are related to this stage of our lives. We talk about how to care for our kids. Our homes. And ourselves. We talk about how we can love our husbands well (if we are married… single moms are welcome as well!) We also talk about how friendships look different during this season and how we can make sure that we have vibrant friendships even with spit-up stains on our shirts and our eyes stinging from lack of sleep.
LILY Moms is not a Bible study. We will not ask you to bring a Bible or pray out loud. Many of our moms are open to spiritual things, but are not church goers. That is okay. We welcome you! When we gather, we enjoy brunch. Uninterrupted. We talk to other adults and have a safe place to ask, “How did you get your child to sleep through the night?” Or, “How did you survive having a newborn and toddler?” We talk and connect and learn from others while our children are lovingly cared for down the hall.
LILY Moms. We hope you’ll join us! No one should journey through this season alone.
