WHAT IS MOPS?
MOPS is a fun supportive group for moms with children ranging from pregnancy through 6th grade. It's a place to make friendships and connect with others in the same stage of life, and receive practical parenting instructions to be the mom we each desire to be. God's desire for us as mothers is to embrace this part of life's journey. We were meant to enjoy this stage in our lives—not be drowned by it. Join us this fall, as we learn together how to flourish while in the trenches of motherhood.
We are introducing something new!! Our ministry to moms is growing with the addition of MOMSNext. MOMSNext is for moms who kids have started school but still need a community of moms for support and encouragement.
TO THE FULL
Are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?* Sometimes we need the reminder that life is meant to be lived to the full. That it is OK to enjoy ourselves, to let our hair down, and to worry less. Because as far as we can tell, this is exactly how God intended for us to live – fully and abundantly. It’s easy to forget what that feels like, though. One day we’re wide-eyed and the possibilities are endless, and then slowly, without even realizing it, we find ourselves dulled by the routines and disappointments that are a part of being human. We slowly start to lose our optimism and zest for life. All that is about to change, because this next year is about the full life. Which means living grateful, joyful and hopeful. It means being led by the Good Shepherd and trusting that everything is working out exactly as it should.
HAVE MORE FUN, remember what it feels like to enjoy ourselves and when life get too hectic. FEAR LESS by choose our faith over fear and scarcity Lastly, FIND OUR PEOPLE being vulnerable and meeting someone new and living a life to the full with people by our side.
But here’s one important thing to remember: this idea of life to the full isn’t about striving for more. It’s not about striving at all. It is about recognizing that life isn’t a bunch of goals to achieve, or people to please; but an invitation to savor, delight and enjoy your life just a little more.If you have ever felt like you aren’t enough, if you have forgotten to have fun or feel like you have lost your spark, then this is the fresh start you have been waiting for.
