Welcome to Agape Moms!
We are a family network of mama tribes who are seeking after Jesus as we navigate motherhood together. In our family, you’ll be ENCOURAGED, not in competition, EMPOWERED, not just getting by, and EMBRACED, regardless of your performance.
As we bring everything back to the gospel, it unleashes us to live lives of purpose for God in everyday, messy mom-life. We welcome moms into our tribe who don’t yet know Jesus, we care for each other like family in the highs and lows of life, and we continually experience the gospel bearing fruit in and through us, together on mission for Jesus.
this is the heartbeat of Agape moms
What is an Agape Moms?
We are a safe place for moms to come explore Jesus and how he makes all the difference in the world, maybe for the first time, for the first time in a long time, or for the first time finding a group of believing women who truly love each other with the unconditional agape love of God.
We are also a safe place for you to grow into the fullness of who God created you to be. Agape Moms gives you an environment to live out Christ’s call for each of us to make disciples, as you live on mission in everyday, messy mom-life, while also plugging in your gifts into the Agape Moms tribe, and living out the story God has already written for you.
Our prayer is to be a bridge between formal church gatherings on Sundays, and the daily messy and dark mom world, one where many moms are left alone with the challenge of raising tiny humans. God didn't create us to do life alone, he wired us for community. Plus, we don't know how momin' is possible without a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus, and we've got both covered at Agape Moms!
We mean it when we say "bring your mess,” there's no pretending or performing with us because we've found our answer in Jesus, not in ourselves, and we are kind of obsessed with sharing this news!
We are gospel-centered in everything we do, from the way we gather, the studies we chose, the lens in which we apply Scripture and grow up into Christ. This is good news for those who feel far from God, and those who are striving to please Him everyday- Jesus is the only way we can begin or maintain our relationship with God! In Christ, we can rest in the finished work for us in His death and resurrection. We couldn’t earn it or deserve it, and as we continually embrace God’s unconditional, Agape love for us, it changes us from the inside out.
Jesus is the hope we are all so desperately searching for at every corner of the messy and sometimes dark mom world. Whether we seem pretty put together, or are an open book hotmess, our souls long for what only Jesus can fill. Living in the mom trenches alone is hard enough, but we believe finding a mom-tribe isn't enough, it's all about knowing Jesus and making Him known together. Will you join us?
Agape Moms gathers weekly as moms are invited to “bring your mess.” We enjoy a light breakfast and coffee while we catch-up over the noise of our kids playing. We are family and so we include our kids in our gatherings and normalize interruptions. We are real about our struggles, support and pray for each other, open Christ-centered studies and continually point each other back to Jesus in everything.
We don’t just meet weekly, we do life together! We organize play dates, moms nights outs/in, celebrate new babies, show up for each other when hard times hit and celebrate the milestones too. We are a family and we believe that knowing God’s unconditional Agape Love changes us from the inside out and enables us to extend His Agape love to each other too.
