River City Church pampers treats group of single mothers

first_imgA group of single moms enjoyed nearly two hours of foot soaking, facials, eyebrow tinting and hand treatments while adults nearby supervised their children. What seemed like the real treat for the group of strangers, though, was meeting each other.“I think it’s just really fun to actually talk to adults and not have to worry about anything,” Rebecca Mayer, of Vancouver, said as she nibbled on a helping of Mighty Bowl.Mayer and other local mothers were selected to take part in a Mother’s Day pampering event Sunday at River City Church, 2400 E. Fourth Plain Blvd. The church received 20 nominations, mostly through Facebook, of single moms in less than a week, and 10 were selected, said Ryan Sidhom, the church’s pastor.The church, which began public services April 21, has roughly 30 regular parishioners to date, Sidhom said. Each Sunday, the church holds a service, volunteer project or family-friendly event on a rotating basis.Since Sunday fell on a volunteer day, the pampering event was a “no-brainer” for Sidhom and his wife, Clarissa Sidhom, who have been planning for months.last_img read more
