FAMILIES N.O.W. (Nurture-Outreach-Witness) 

Families NOW is a Christian program to assist young parents in, and around our Parents NOW (Nurture-Outreach-Witness) is a Christian program to assist young parents in, and around our community who are dealing with parenthood “now".

On July 27, 2016, Parent's NOW added an older group of Mom's to their ministry for those 26-31 years of age.  They had 9 families at their first meeting! The meeting time is held on the 4th Tuesday night of each month from 5-7:30 PM.


Parents & Families NOW Meeting Dates:

2nd Friday of each month

4th Tuesday of each month 


Choose to attend one meeting a month. 


  •  Dads and kids are welcome to attend too!

  •  Childcare and Evening Meal are provided at NO COST!

  •  No meeting in December    



We're in need of volunteers each month.

If you can cook or hold and play with little ones, God can use you to serve with us here each month.  


Families NOW volunteers offer an encouraging and loving environment that supports young parents (26 to 31 years of age) and gives them tools to become successful parents. Our monthly gatherings provide a safe, caring, and non-judgmental atmosphere where young adults are free to share their ideas and feelings with others. 


Please contact Tara Trent (618) 971-3156 if you would be available to help on Tuesday or Friday night (for Parent's NOW) by preparing food, holding babies or playing with children, visiting with the parents or leading a short class.  Men, women and high school students are encouraged to participate also. 



Be a blessing and be blessed by serving with us once a month.  



We're always in need of diapers, wipes, baby lotions & shampoo, creams, new & gently used children's clothing (infant-size 6), baby formula and NEW car seats.
