The vision of RAISE is to be a source of spiritual and emotional nourishment for mothers. Our desire is to provide a relaxing and joyful community where moms can build relationships with other moms in the same season of mothering, a place where moms can catch a glimpse of the Jesus that we love and an environment that will also challenge and nurture growth in each individual’s walk with Christ. We believe that we were created in the image of Christ and our purpose is to show others that they too were formed in His likeness. This ministry will provide the opportunity for us all to become and think more like Christ.
1. To provide an environment where mothers of children of all ages can gather to grow in love for Jesus and leave each week refreshed and encouraged in their walk.
2. To foster a spirit of mentoring where wisdom pertaining to family life, child rearing, homemaking and other issues related to women can be passed from generation to generation. (Titus 2:4)
3. To provide a reliable, loving and spirit-filled child care ministry that embraces the vision statement so that moms can be nurtured and strengthened and in turn be empowered to give back to the church and their families.
4. To be a source of prayer for one another, especially during times of struggle.
