MOPS and MOMSnext are back! MOPS encourages and equips moms of preschoolers (MOPS) and school-age children (MOMSnext) to realize their potential as mothers, women, and leaders, in relationship with Jesus, and in partnership with our church.
Mothers of Preschoolers(MOPs) and MOPs next, is a group of moms of children ages 0-10. We meet twice a month to share in fellowship and discuss topics of all ranges in our walks of life. Free childcare and refreshments are provided (and don’t worry, we aren’t going to follow you to the bathroom and you don’t have to share your food!)
Have you ever gotten to the end of a week, month or year and thought, “How did I get here? Where has the time gone?” It happens in our parenting, friendships, marriage and work- we get caught up in the urgent demands of the day-to-day, and then years go by, and we realize we haven’t been making the small choices that will get us where we actually wanted to be. So this is the year to make some moves.
It’s amazing how one little word can change your life. But too often, our ‘yeses’ are reserved for default decisions we aren’t even intentionally making or the stuff we feel obligated to do. What if we started saying ‘yes’ to the important things? Yes, to parenting on purpose. Yes, to significant challenges and out-of-your-comfort-zone opportunities.
Yes, to your marriage. Invitations to connect with others? Yes, please. Saying yes opens us up to new ways of thinking and helps cultivate a growth mindset.
To clarify, we’re not talking about people-pleasing or over-extending yourself. In fact, it’s the opposite. Developing a ‘yes’ mindset is living intentionally, focused on your goals for yourself and your family. It’s about listening to God’s still, small voice and doing the brave things rather than the easy things.
Saying yes means we will…
Befriend Discomfort – Be Easily Delighted – Be Here Now
This is the year of yes! Yes, to God. Yes, to the thing that gives you butterflies. Yes, to this moment, these people, this life. Get ready to SAY YES.
Once you join, you will be invited to join the PRIVATE MOPS First Prez group where you can post prayer requests, discussion topics, and stay connected with your MOPS and MOMSnext friends.
