Who We Are

We are women of all ages who gather from approximately 20 different area communities and churches to be encouraged and inspired.

Sign up sheets are available for participants to bring a baked good or fruit for the women and/or snacks for the children.

MOMS provides programs for children from birth through kindergarten. Our excellent teachers teach a specific curriculum each week to give the children a pre-school experience. This year's curriculum is called Teddy Bear and Others. Leola MOMS has a child protection policy implemented.
