Connecting with our Neighbors

When Danae Lay moved here to Texas from Virginia with her husband, Craig, and three kids, she went from having a consistent, solid community to feeling alone and unsure how to connect with other moms in this new place. 

When she started coming to Argyle UMC, she met another mom, Megan Reynolds, and together, they realized that they were seeking deeper connection with moms in our community. They faithfully answered God’s call to partner and form a group for moms—not knowing what the outcome would be. 

This summer, Danae and Megan started Argyle M.O.M.s (Moms on Monday); after their first meeting, Danae said “much to our surprise, there were 20+ moms who were also searching for connection and fellowship right here in our community”—they were not alone. 

Now that the group has been meeting consistently every week, Danae said that “the last couple of months have been wonderful and fulfilling for [her]” and that she “loves that [their] group openly shares the joys and struggles of motherhood” and that they “have been supporting each other since day one.” 

Currently, the Argyle M.O.M.s group is gathering every Monday to study, getting together during the week for Mom’s Nights Out, and planning a Back to School Party to celebrate their new friendships and invite more moms who may be searching for a deeper connection with God in community. If this is you, engage with this welcoming group by liking them on Facebook—just search for Argyle UMC M.O.M.s.
