Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up;
do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43: 18-19

Are You A Mom With Kids Aged Newborn To Kindergarten?
                                                                                                                        Then You Are Invited To Attend Our MOPS Group.

Why MOPS?
                                                                                                                                    “Better Moms Make a Better World”
                                                                                                                                     Moms often feel tired, overwhelmed, and lonely.  A MOPS group offers opportunity for moms to build friendships with other moms. We spend time getting to know each other through conversation, socializing, conversation, creative activities, conversation and discussions on topics of interest and did we mention conversation?

“Mops exists for every mom – urban, suburban, and rural moms,
stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms – moms with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be!”


 
 
 What Happens At A MOPS Meeting?
                                                                                                        Relaxation – Renewal – Conversation – Friendships – Growth – Creativity - Support - Discussions
 
After dropping the little ones with our dedicated childcare workers, enjoy refreshments and conversation with others also living life’s challenging  moments.  MOPS meetings offer moms support and growth through presentations on motherhood, womanhood and relationships, with a time for creativity through crafts or activities.  Opportunity for spiritual growth is provided through bible-based devotions and personal stories.

Is Church Membership Required To Attend MOPS?
No.  Any mother with children aged birth to kindergarten can attend.

MOPS Is All About You!
Bravery.  Courage.  As mothers we have both, but we’re often afraid to seek them.  Are you living your life or are you at a standstill? With God guiding us our courage strengthens, allowing us to be bold, be strong and be brave in living.  So . . . Spread Your Wings . . . Be You, Bravely!
     
  MOPS is an international organization dedicated to reaching every mom during motherhood’s messiest years.  MOPS International mission statement states that MOPS “exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.”
