About M-LIFE :: The Program

About Our Group

M-LIFE meetings are held the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. at Community Reformed Church, 10376 Felch Street in Zeeland, and runs October through May. Women of all ages and backgrounds are invited to join us—the only requirement is that you are the mother of a child age 0-kindergarten. Childcare is provided so that our moms can have a well-deserved break & come away feeling refreshed.

Each time we meet, we begin with breakfast together and then we either spend time working on a craft as a large group, or we have a speaker on a topic relevant to moms. Over the course of the year, each table takes a turn at providing breakfast for the group.


Meetings run from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. and children may be dropped off beginning at 9:15 a.m. Breakfast begins at 9:15 a.m. and the meeting starts promptly at 9:30 a.m.

Please note that if Zeeland Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather, M-LIFE will be canceled.


While you are enjoying a morning of relaxation and rejuvenation, your children are being cared for in a parallel program. Our childrens program is designed specifically to care for the needs of infants, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners. Each morning is filled with stories, songs, crafts, playtime, and a snack. We have loving teachers and volunteers in each room to care for your children.


We want to make our M-LIFE meetings affordable and do not want anyone to be excluded due to financial reasons. If you decide our M-LIFE group is right for you and your children, there is a suggested donation of $5 per meeting to help cover the cost of childcare, speakers, crafts, and refreshments. No one keeps track of when or what you donate—if you find value in our meetings, we invite you to give as you are able.

If you have questions, or would like to register, please contact Community Reformed Church M-LIFE Coordinator Trisha Zeerip via e-mail at communitymops@gmail.com or Nakisha De Jong @ 772-4907.
