Welcome to MOPS - a place to find friendship, community, resources and support for you as a woman and mother so you're not alone.
MOPS stands for "mothers of preschoolers" - but don't let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mom of a child from conception through kindergarten. Whether you're urban, suburban, rural, stay-at-home, working, teen, adoptive, special-needs, single or married, MOPS is for you!
Mops 2012-13 theme is Plunge: Love as if your life depended on it. Speaker emphasis will be on relationships and hope. MOPS communicates a message of hope and creates an atmosphere of supportive relationships that moms need to survive a world of constant change. Taking the plunge in relationships is being authentic and going deeper. In a MOPS group, relationships offer hope to moms, especially as moms go deeper and take risks to create authentic community. All facets of relationships can be strengthened through taking risks, going deeper and showing authentic love – neighborhood, friendships, marriages, extended families, the world around us and ultimately relationship with God. Throughout the 2012-13 Mops will equip moms to be relationally healthy and thriving.
MOMSnext: We believe that Better Moms Make a Better World. This is true during the preschool years and beyond. As mothers enter the school years, new challenges and issues arise, but the need for community and hope remains. For this reason we offer MOMSnext, a ministry to mothers of school-age kids.
This year we will be joining the MOMSnext ministry to our MOPS group. We will share in the community of support for one another, along with sharing the speakers, crafts, and food. There will be tables designated for moms in the MOMSnext group so that the conversations can be tailored to the needs pertaining to school-aged children.
