Building Better Moms (BBM) strives to build a community of mothers, where members meet together in a larger group setting and are connected with a small group of moms with whom they share a table at each BBM meeting. Participating mothers enjoy fellowship, speakers, devotions and group discussion.
St. Peter’s United Methodist Church in Wellington is a Building Better Moms National Partner with United Methodist Church of the Resurrection based in Leawood, Kansas, where the BBM program originated. The Church of the Resurrection partners with churches around the country to make this ministry for moms a success. BBM welcomes mothers in the local communities with children who are early childhood through high school. The BBM calendar follows the school calendar, beginning in September and concluding in April, meeting 12 times a year. There are occasional social events outside the meeting schedule.
BBM meetings will be held from 9:15 to 11:15 a.m. on the following Thursdays during the 2013-14 school year at the church, which is located at12200 W. Forest Hill Blvd. in Wellington: Sept. 12 and 26, 2013; Oct. 10 and 24; Nov. 7 and 21; Jan. 9 and 23, 2014; Feb. 6 and 20; March 6; and April 3. Registration is $35 for the year. Childcare is available for ages 2 and up, on a first-come, first-paid registration basis with limited openings. BBM childcare is $20 per child for the year.
Building Better Moms programs are launching in churches around the country. The theme this year is “Embrace this life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you.” The local BBM group in Wellington is welcoming new members now.
