Square One Spring 2023 Session
April 5, 10:00 am - May 17 - 12:00 pm | Preschool Building Room 301
There’s a first time for everything! Navigate motherhood with other first-time moms.
At Square One, our mission is to provide biblical encouragement and support to first-time new moms with infants (0-5 months). You’ll connect not only with other new mothers, but also with authentic, seasoned women who can mentor you as you begin the journey of motherhood. Bring your baby to our seven sessions, and we’ll discuss key areas relating to your new role as mom, from wisdom, identity, stewardship, and marriage to family relationships and personal growth.
We will begin the 7-week series on July 6, and conclude on August 17, 2022. The class runs Wednesday mornings, 10am-12pm. Bring your baby with you and connect with others also starting the journey of being a mom!

Frequently Asked Questions
When did Square One start?
Square One began in the fall of 2005 at Watermark Church in Dallas, Texas with 11 new moms and 6 mentor moms.
What’s the meaning behind the name?
When a woman becomes a mother for the first time, often it feels like all of life needs to be reconfigured. Being a new mom is like starting over from Square One.
Why is Square One only for the first baby during the first five months?
Square One is designed to support women as they first become mothers. We want our discussions to be relevant and helpful for mothers in the earliest stages of parenting; by the second six months, new patterns of life with a baby have developed, and their concerns are different. Additionally, as babies become more distracting and mobile, it becomes more difficult for mothers to participate in discussions.
Do mothers bring their baby? Is it ok to attend before the baby has had shots?
Yes, mothers bring and keep their baby with them. Women often attend before their baby has had shots. If the baby born pre-term, is at-risk, or mom has been cautioned by her pediatrician, moms may want to arrange for her infant to remain home with a caregiver and attend Square One by herself.
Who are the small group leaders?
Leaders are experienced mothers who have a heart for women going through this stage of life. They typically have children over the age of two. They specifically prioritize listening over giving advice.
If a participant’s baby becomes fussy, a Square One Team Member might offer to help so that the mom can continue listening and discussing the topic. Team members are experienced moms, have background checks, and will always be in a public place while they are holding the infant.
Registration is not yet open for our spring 2023 session. After the winter 2023 session begins, registration will open for the spring 2023 session.
