Virtual Gathering for Mom’s
Wednesdays at 8:30pm beginning July 8th
RAGE AGAINST THE MINIVAN is a heartfelt, subversively funny memoir and a bold personal manifesto that pushes back against the superficial expectations of motherhood — and challenges the idea that there’s a “right” way to raise kids.  This group will read and discuss the memoir.

With hard-won knowledge gained from having four kids in four years, Kristen Howerton navigates the emotional and sometimes messy waters of motherhood, sharing valuable lessons from her journey through infertility, adoption, pregnancy, toddler tantrums, divorce, and the shock and awe of parenting teens. Howerton recounts how she learned to opt out from the pressure to do it all perfectly. As a mom of both white and black children and a licensed therapist, Howerton talks frankly about the thorny issues parents face today, whether it’s finding good mom friends, confronting racism, disciplining other people’s kids, or falling short of that elusive work/life balance. Howerton’s experience–the expectations, the stress, the total lack of control, and yes, the indignities of driving a minivan (which now sits in her driveway littered with crushed Cheetos and the remnants of her self-esteem)–along with her ability to laugh at herself, reminds parents they are not alone on this unpredictable ride.

This is a come as you are gathering.  Put your kids to bed and join us as you are- messy hair, no make up, and snacks if needed.  Contact Kristen Lane, Minister of Discipleship and mom of two, at [email protected] for log-in information.

Women’s Thursday Night Virtual Gathering
8:30 pm beginning July 9th
Join women of all ages and stages of life as we being to read and discuss Brene Brown’s “The Gifts of Imperfection”.

Now more than ever, we all need to cultivate feelings of self-worth, as well as acceptance and love for ourselves. In a world where insults, criticisms, and fears are spread too generously alongside messages of unrealistic beauty, attainment, and expectation, we look for ways to “dig deep” and find truth and gratitude in our lives. A new way forward means we can’t hold on too tightly to our own self-defeating thoughts or the displaced pain in our world. Instead, we can embrace the imperfection. This gathering is led by Kristen Lane, Minister of Discipleship.
