Single Moms Group - Hope+Elim
This Single Moms Group meets Wednesday evenings at Hope+Elim in Des Moines. The group meets on a weekly basis, September through April*, allowing single moms time to connect with others walking a similar journey and, together, seek what matters most. At each gathering, single moms can expect time to share, listen, laugh, and grow while participating in relevant studies in a healthy, encouraging environment.
Study: In addition to connection time that happens, this group will be going through the study, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzero. While most people ignore emotions and avoid conflict in the name of Christianity, the author has discovered that it is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. This study looks at how to avoid suppressing emotions, embrace healthy conflict, discover and put into practice Biblical frameworks of rhythms and rest, and develop into an emotionally mature adult.
Dinner is provided for moms and their children from 5:00-6:00PM with moms then meeting from 6:20-7:30PM.
Children and youth programming happens during the group meeting time and is provided by Hope+Elim. Nursery is provided for birth through 3 year olds (not potty-trained). Hope+Elim Kids is available for children 3 years old (potty trained) through 4th grade. 5th graders are welcome to take part in Hope+Elim Kids as volunteers. 6th-12th graders can take part in middle and high school youth programming. Information about children and youth programming can be found on the Hope+Elim website: https://www.lutheranchurchofhope.org/hope-elim/youth/.
