Charlena Thompson

My name is Charlena Thompson.  I became a mother at the age of 19 while a freshman in college.  I continued my education and obtained my Bachelor and Master’s Degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.  I was a single mother for 18 years until meeting my husband and getting married in 2018. I enjoy helping others and working with children. I have worked as a substitute teacher and volunteered in Children’s Ministry. I am now hoping to help other single moms face some of the challenges I may have endured. I believe to raise your children to be their best, you need to be the best you can be. This is why I am starting the Single Moms Ministry.

Meet Your Facilitator

Hi, my name is Bonnie and I am mom to two daughters ages 21 and 19.  Ten years ago I joined the single parent group at my church and have benefitted tremendously from the guidance I receive there.  I know the value of a strong support system and that’s why I have a heart for single moms and the difficulties they face. I look forward to moderating this group and meeting you!

Dana McNeill

I’m Dana McNeill, and my story of motherhood and single parenting is quite unique - just like yours. No two people approach this path or travel this journey with the same experience. However, the one thing that we all know is that it takes guts, tenacity, and maturity - as well as lots of grace - to come out better at the end.  I have been remarried now for many years.  John and I share a son and we raised my two girls as if they were ours together.  I’m a very proud Mama of 3 amazing adult children and and MeeMa to 4 handsome grandsons. God has brought more restoration into our broken lives than I can ever share. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your restoration story as well.

Meets 1st and 3rd Saturday

each month

from 4-6pm.
