MOPS - Mothers of Preschoolers
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.
We meet the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from September to June
Sometimes we need a wise woman who has been there and done that to bounce ideas off of. That’s why we love our MOPS Mentors, they have sage advice and willing ears.
Real talk is liberating. It frees us from assumptions that we are alone in our struggles. We value taking a risk and sharing your story in order to heal someone else from their isolation.
Really, who needs another tutorial on how to make crepe paper flowers? What we provide is mommy friends who get you, hope-filled insight, and speakers who know we’ve only had three hours of uninterrupted sleep last night so they better keep it interesting.
Create, imagine, and actually finish a project. We occasionally like to have something “pinteresty” (Yes, that is a made up word. Work with me here.) to make at our meetings. We all need a little time to indulge in a creative endeavor.
Look, we all love our kids, but let’s be honest: a little break now and then makes us want to be with them even more. We provide free child care for your kiddos that they will love going back to.
What to Expect at Your First Meeting
Coffee, coffee, coffee!
We begin each meeting with coffee, tea, juice and muffins/coffee cake, and catching up with one another.
Practical Help Need some inspiration? At every meeting there will be a speaker or video that gives practical tools and insight into the specific things that are important to you.
Meet a MOPS Mentor who has been through it all and has great advice and a willing ear.
Time to Chat
We moms need each other. At each meeting there will be time to get to know other moms in an accepting small group atmosphere.
You’ll Get Crafty
We like to try new things and be creative. Many groups incorporate a fun craft time into their meeting agenda.
Our mentors are Cindy VanAllen, Sandy Harrington and Andrea White. For more information, please give the church office a call at 518-725-9611 we look forward to seeing you and your children.
