Why do we love our children and families so much??
We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19
Mom2Mom is a ministry that provides a warm, safe, inviting place for mothers to come and learn about Jesus Christ and grow in their relationship with Christ. We encourage moms to share and make friendships in our community and with other moms.
Mom2Mom includes a variety of fun activities such as Bible studies, special speakers, devotionals, music, crafts, conversations, and much more. It's a lot of laughter, learning, sharing, and caring!
Childcare is provided.
We use a security and safety program called "KidCheck." It requires parents to sign up online and register their children. When you drop the kids off you check them in using this program. It helps to make sure we know which kids are attending that morning and who can pick them up when Mom2Mom is done. Register here: https://go.kidcheck.com/signin.aspx?action=register

Here at Maywood we have a variety of ministries to strengthen your walk with God wherever you are at in life. Life Groups are a huge part of our church; they help to connect us closer to God and each other. We have Ministry/Community Life Groups and many different Sunday Morning Groups . If you are just starting out the adult life, our college and career ministry called AXIS may be just for you. There are also ministries specifically for Men and Women.
At Maywood, couples desiring to be married must attend pre-marital counseling. These 6 - 8 sessions are designed to help prepare couples to succeed in their new adventure in life as a married couple that honors God. It is our desire to help you start your marriage well and flourish for a lifetime. At this time we will discuss Biblical Guidelines for Marriage, God's Blueprint for Marriage, and the Steps in the Marriage Process at Maywood Free Church. Please click here to download the pre-marital information packet.
Upon downloading and reviewing this information you will then schedule an appointment with Pastor Gary Kniseley in preparation for your marriage. You will be sent a wedding application that is to be filled out and brought with you for your first appointment. It will be at this meeting that building usage and availability will be discussed.
