First-Time Mom and Baby Group

First-time mothers are invited to bring their babies to a casual sharing group of fellowship, prayer, and Bible study. The dads will join the group for the fourth night, May 27, for a show-and-tell of their new babies and to meet the other first-time dads.

We will share our birth stories, tips on sleep schedules, eating, and general health issues. You will make new church friends for both you and your baby. Other topics are "Finding Time for Me,” “Finding Time for the Marriage,” basic child development stages, practical resources, and activities in town.

Afterwards, the moms form a playgroup for those who would like to participate. These self-led groups can meet where you choose—at the church, in a home or park.

The group will be limited to 12 new mothers. Scholarships are available. You can pay by check on the first night or go online at http://www.hpumc.org/parenting
