Eastmont hosted the Mother’s Day MinistryEvent on Friday, May 6th. Sixteen ladies and their ten children from Friendship Mission participated in the evening’s activities.Friendship Mission is a ministry inMontgomery serving the homeless. The ladies in attendance are all residents ofFriendship Mission’s homeless shelter for women and children. The stories of these ladies are as varied as their backgrounds, but the one thing they all have in common is a need to experience hope and the love of Jesus. While Ty Logan led a childcare crew, the ladies enjoyed a dinner, a word of encouragement, and a craft. The message they heard was based on three truths from scripture:
- They are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-16)
- Their weakness is meant to be their strength (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
- They were created on purpose and for His purpose (Genesis 1:26-28; 1 Peter 3:18)
The craft project involved a Scripture coloring page. There were several verses from which they could choose. One lady chose “The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid.” (Psalm 118:6) She shared that she is often afraid, and she wants to be reminded that she is not alone. It was during the craft time when the ladies became more comfortable with those of us from Eastmont, allowing opportunities for gospel conversations.
A special thank you to all those who made this event possible!

Several ladies asked about transportation to church on Sunday mornings. We are looking for couples who would be willing to serve on a rotation to drive a church bus to transport ladies and kids to Eastmont for LifeGroups and worship. If you are interested in serving in this way, please contact Karen in the church office.
