FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What makes GCS Moms League Different from other mom groups?


GCS Moms league is a group with over 150 moms (some work and some stay home). We have organized playgroups by children’s age, monthly Breakfast Socials (pending COVID restrictions lifted) and specialty events like book club, moms night out, fit club and MANY more. We also select a local charity and funds from our annual Great Gala are donated to that organization.




How do I join?


Click here to fill out our membershpi form with your information and a new screen will open to take your payment. From there you’ll receive an email with information on how to join our private facebook group.




What does the $60 registration fee cover?


The registration fee helps to fund our monthly Breakfast Socials, events and holiday parties plus administrative fees to keep a large group like this organized. For example, the Children’s Christmas party includes our own Santa Claus and private photographer, a balloon making elf, AND a bounce house. All just for our members and their families!




What kind of events are offered through the league?


We offer a large variety of events and we are always adding more as our group grows. Events include monthly Breakfast Socials, Mom Night Out, Couples Night Out, Book Club, Fit Club, Baby Playgroup, Toddler Playgroup, Game Night, Couples Christmas Party, The Great Gala, Children’s Holiday themed parties (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter) and New Member Mingles.




What is the typical age of the kids? Are mine too young/old?


The league has many mothers with children of all ages! From newborn to school age. We offer playgroups based on age and availability.




What is the time commitment? What events required of me?


The only requirement is that you have FUN! But really there are no requirements, come to as many or as few events as your schedule allows. We have members that only attend the monthly meeting or only join in on their weekly playgroups. We also have members that hold a Board position within the league and attend many social events. It is truly up to you!




Can I attend an event before joining?


Absolutely! We’d love to have you attend an event. Email membership@gcsmomsleague.org and we can help you find an event that fits your schedule.




What kind of volunteer opportunities does the league offer?


The league offers many opportunities to volunteer. You can volunteer your time internally by holding a Board or Committee position. Each year we offer several volunteering events within our community and we also host a fundraising Gala event each year. The Gala takes a large amount of planning to pull off, we could always use more help!




What are the Breakfast Socials/General Meetings all about?


Sounds so formal, but it’s not. We host a meeting of the moms, which we like to call Breakfast Socials. Coffee (it’s hot) and breakfast are served and childcare is available. Meetings can include a speaker, a fitness class or socializing, or all of the above! It’s truly a great time to bond with other members over coffee (did I mention it’s hot?) and learn something new. The meetings are from 9:30-11:30 at First United Methodist Church in Colleyville.




Is childcare offered at events?


Childcare is offered (with a reservation) at our monthly Breakfast Socials.




Are there any events for my husband to meet other dads?


YES! We have Couples Night Out as well as Couples Christmas Party AND the Great Gala. These are all great opportunities for the dads to meet! Some playgroups even get together with the dads.




Who do I reach out to if I have questions?


Please reach out to membership@gcsmomsleague.org with any questions. We are happy to help, ask away!

How can I meet more moms with similar hobbies/interests?


This year our membership form includes a hobbies/interests section. Attending our monthly meetings or reaching out to the membership chair is a great way to find out more.




Does your league offer discounts to your members?


Our league does offer some exclusive discounts for members only. For example, several businesses in the area offered members discounts to prepare for the Gala. We also have businesses reach out and offer trial classes to our members.




What is the Great Gala?


The Great Gala is a fundraising, formal event held every spring.

Funds are raised for a charity in our community and each year the event is BIGGER and MORE FUNDS are raised. Last year, we raised $35,000 for The Gatehouse (even after our Great Gala was canceled due to COVID). We raised $41,000 for CASA of Tarrant County the year before. We love raising funds that go right back into our community and truly make a difference.




What is the Summer Camp Expo?


Each spring we host a Summer Camp Expo, bringing together several local businesses that hold summer camps all in one building, making it very convenient for you! And, it is not just for GCSML members. It is open to all our friends and the community at large.
