Moms Uplifting Moms (MUMS)
MUMS (Moms Uplifting Moms) is a ministry of Immanuel Baptist Richmond that seeks to encourage and equip mothers of preschoolers with support and friendship during the joyful and challenging years of raising babies. Come and enjoy breakfast, connection, and inspiring speakers, while your little ones enjoy age-specific special programs with singing, Bible stories, crafts, and games.
MUMS exists to glorify God by engaging, encouraging, and equipping mothers of preschoolers with the hope of the Gospel.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works. Hebrews 10:24
Why the switch from MOPS to MUMS?
In the spring of 2018, our Steering Team spent hours in discussion and prayer reviewing the new theme as well as the material and articles from MOPS over the last few years. While the statement of faith on the MOPS website has not changed, much of the rest of the material coming from MOPS International has changed. Our mission for our group at Immanuel is to encourage and uplift moms by pointing them to the hope of the Gospel. Sadly, it seems to us that the Gospel has been increasingly obscured in what we see coming from MOPS. It is the hope of Christ in us that will change how we mother. We find that hope missing, hidden, or obscured in what we have seen in the last few years. Because of this, we have made the painful decision to not continue our partnership with MOPS International. We view our mission to shepherd and encourage you as a mom very seriously, and we cannot continue to partner with an organization that seems to be struggling to define and defend truth.
