Moms in Prayer groups in SavannahThe Moms In Prayer (MIP) group in Savannah will kick off on Thursday, 8/22, from 8:45-9:45 am at the Habersham YMCA Youth Building.

This is a time of non-denominational Christian prayer for our children, our schools, the things they face, etc..

You are invited to join.

The regular meeting time after the kick-off will continue to be Thursdays from 8:45-9:45 am at the Habersham YMCA Youth Building when the Savannah Chatham County Public Schools are in session. You can visit any week.

For more info you can contact Stacy Cerone, at scerPM@gmail.com or visit www.momsinprayer.org. The goal is to launch other school-specific groups from this group as the group grows.
To see if your school already has a MIP group meeting, click on the Find A Group link on the MIP home page.  If you work during the week days and are unable to come, Stacy is willing to help you start a working women’s group to meet one Saturday a month or whatever works. It just takes two committed praying women to form a “group.”
