Women's Discipleship

"Spiritual Moms"

Need a little spiritual nurturing? Sign up to be mentored by a spiritual mom. Spiritual moms are women from Emmanuel who are spiritually mature, empty nesters, and who love to meet with women one-on-one. This is not a life-coaching program, but rather is designed for those who need nurturing in order to grow in their Christian faith. Click below to apply to be mentored and Frieda Ruch will contact you. (If you are interested in being the mentor, click here to apply!)
