Antioch Area

Spring 2017

Welcome to the Antioch Area Office!
Meet the Antioch Area Kindred Life Ministries group. We are friendly, funny, easy going, and loving. Mostly we are passionate about supporting each other and being the awesome moms and women God created us to be!
Join other teen moms and their children, each Tuesday from 6:00pm-8:00pm, as we grow together and work towards accomplishing our educational, emotional, and practical goals! Belonging to Kindred Life Antioch means you’ll have access to free services which can include counseling, financial support and life education!
Call or text Program Director Kathy Mitsuuchi at 847-338-8587 if you would like to learn about joining us. Let us help support you to finish school, navigate family and community resources and meet some other terrific moms!

Antioch Area News

Volunteer Spotlight – Brenda Latz

Brenda has been volunteering behind the scenes since 2013 organizing & recruiting our meals for us. That’s almost 150 meals that have been delivered to our young families because of her servant heart! It is such a blessing for them to enjoy a home cooked meal after a long day at work or school. It also sets the tone for our Life Education nights and who doesn’t love fellowship around a table with a shared meal? Brenda has handled the scheduling, reminding, special events, and schedule changes for all the Antioch area meals for these past several years. She has humbly served us and is greatly appreciated!

What’s happening:

We’ve had two Life Ed Groups for dads only!  We continue to learn bible stories during our devotional time. This month, through the story of Mary and Martha, our moms see a real life example of how the busyness of life can distract us from spending time with Jesus. 

Along with the Bible, our devotions this semester are from Lysa TerKeursts’ book, Unglued. Lysa is a Christian author and founder of Proverbs 31 ministries, who encourages us to continue to make imperfect progress as we allow Jesus to complete a good work in us.

What’s Coming Up

We will continue to learn how to steward our finances in a godly manner, celebrate our Savior’s resurrection, learn how we can discipline in love like our heavenly Father, appreciate our ministry partners with a special dinner, celebrate Mother’s Day and end our year in May with graduations and a picnic!

There are lots of ways to get involved and volunteer one time at these special evets. Please contact [email protected] for details!

Program Director

Blessings to you from the Antioch location of Kindred Life Ministries! I am Kathy Mitsuuchi and I have been privileged to be the Antioch Program Director here since January of 2006. Besides living for the glory of God, being a wife to my husband and mother to my three almost grown children, I can’t imagine doing anything else but serving the courageous young ladies in this wonderful ministry. Every life is a precious gift from God and I respect these young ladies for choosing life for their unplanned pregnancy. Teenagers are so optimistic and excited about how they can change the world for the better. That is the joy in serving teen moms!

Please contact me if I can help you in any way with questions or referrals to local resources. Likewise, if you are  looking for a place to serve as a volunteer, please contact me at 847-338-8587 or [email protected]
