    Birds On A Wire presents:
    Mom's Night Out with Karen Stubbs

    Friday, March 2, 2018

    Friday, March 2, 2018

    Grace Presbyterian Church | Worship Center

    5:45 – 6:20 p.m. – VIP Gathering with Karen (with paid VIP admission ticket)
    6:30 p.m. – Doors Open
    7:00 p.m. – Moms’ Night Out event begins


    Moms constantly give of themselves—planning meals, cooking, washing, cleaning, scheduling, carpooling. As moms, we desire to love and nurture our children, but if we’re honest, we don’t always feel encouraged or equipped to do all that comes with the job.

    Imagine pressing pause and spending a night being refueled, equipped, and empowered alongside other moms! Birds on a Wire designed the Moms Night Out for that very purpose—to inspire moms in every stage of life with truths needed to soar and not to grow weary as we navigate motherhood.
