Announcing Mom's Morning Retreat!
Hi Everybody,
I am very pleased to announce a new program coming to Grace this fall -- Mom's Morning Retreat.  This program is made possible by a Grace Outreach Grant, and will be led by Bev Gaines.  It will take place at Grace on the 1st and 3rd Thursday mornings of the month, and is open to mothers throughout our local community.


Mom's Morning Retreat is an inter-faith support program for mothers on Bainbridge Island and the surrounding community.  This group recognizes that motherhood is a time of joy and challenge.  They believe that there are benefits when mothers have a regular opportunity to be nurtured and fed, to reflect and share.  I have been working throughout the summer with a dedicated group of planners and am thrilled to be a part of this program. 


The first meeting is Thursday, November 4, at 9:30 AM.  Mom's Morning Retreat will meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, from 9:30 - 11:00am, at Grace Episcopal Church.  Meetings are open to mothers with children of all ages.  I am especially pleased to be supporting programming for the children which will include stories, art, music and snack.  This year's theme is "The Gift of Life:  Finding Joy Where You Are."  We are thrilled to have Bev Gaines as our mentor to lead our guided discussions.  


We're offering a special sneak preview of Mom's Morning Retreat on Wednesday, October 13, at 7:00 PM, at Grace.  Come learn about us and meet other moms.  Childcare and a selection of desserts will be provided.
