MOPS - Mothers of Preschoolers
2nd & 4th Tuesdays | 9:15 - 11:30am | Great Room | Register
MOPS is for mothers of children from infancy through six years old. Our goal in MOPS is to equip you to handle the joys and challenges of life as a mom. MOPS is a great place for mothers find friendship and acceptance, develop mothering skills, and promote spiritual growth. The women are of many ages and backgrounds, but share the same desire—to be the best mothers they can be. Child care is available during each meeting. Children are lovingly cared for in age-appropriate classes with games, crafts, songs, Bible stories and a snack.
This year's theme is "We are the Starry Eyed," based on Jeremiah 33:2-3, "Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it…call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Starry Eyed means looking for the light even when darkness is enveloping. It is an opportunity to hope recklessly and to witness God’s presence guidance things seen and unseen, comfortable and uncomfortable. We hope that this year with MOPS is going to stand out as the year we decide to live fully and choose to see the light.
Crossroads MOPS welcomes women from throughout the community. You do not need to be a member of Crossroads Fellowship to join Crossroads MOPS. There is a $24.95 MOPS International fee, plus an additional $60 fee to cover child care, craft and other expenses due at the first meeting of each semester. Visit our Crossroads MOPS blog and find out what we're up to locally! Also visit the MOPS International web site for more information about the organization.
Your Kids Are Growing, and We Are Too!
We are officially launching a blend of MOPS and MOMSnext at Crossroads. This new extension of MOPS is for all mothers of school-age kids to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help and spiritual hope.
This MOMSnext small group will meet at Crossroads Fellowship on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays with MOPS. The MOMSnext group will have brunch and crafts with our MOPS group. Many speakers and topics will still be relevant to this group; but there will also be opportunities for separate discussions unique to moms with older children. This Group will enjoy mom's nights out, lunch or coffee dates, and time for children to socialize together!
