The Meeting of the Moms is now “REAL Moms” (REAL stands for Renewed, Encouraged, Accepted & Loved). We realize motherhood doesn’t get easier. It changes from season to season and gets richer as we learn to rely on Jesus in the everyday. REAL Moms is here to encourage, equip and support all moms to not just survive motherhood, but to thrive in it, in whatever season you find yourself in. Starting June 20, we will be meeting weekly at local parks over the summer. Follow @gckidventure and @gcauthenticgrace on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date on events and gatherings.
