DAVIDSON—A growing number of mothers and their young children are gathering at a local church each week for coffee, conversation and playtime.
Chantelle Taylor, organizer of the Optimist Moms and Tots and More Group, said an average of six to 12 moms are meeting on Tuesday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon at New Life Pentecostal Church.
“We’ve grown quite a bit,” she said, adding that fathers, expec
tant mothers, those whose kids have started school already, and those without children are also invited to come.
“The group’s open to anybody who wants to come,” said Taylor.
Each gathering usually starts with chatting and coffee. The mothers are encouraged to share about their week so far and about parenting issues and concerns.
“Everybody’s all ecstatic over that right now,” she said.
Taylor said she has a list of about 20 members who receive updates on the group each week through text messages or phone calls. Ladies interested in taking part can contact her at 567-8203.oot.
The group has grown since moving to the Pentecostal church. In addition to the mothers attending, an average of 15 to 20 children also come along each week.
