WHAT IS MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, but we are open to all mothers of children from birth through kindergarten. You do not have to be a “church-goer” or from a specific denomination to join us. MOPS is a place where moms come to be encouraged and supported by other moms who are in the very same season of life…And best of all, to make some great friends! Visit www.mops.org to learn more about MOPS.
If you are interested in joining our group or if you’d like to try out a meeting, please email Debbie Ficzeri.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST MEETING
Care for your kids. We call it MOPPETS, and it is an excellent program staffed by trained teachers who will nurture your kids in a preschool-like environment.
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.
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…especially since it is hard to find time to do these things at home!
Personal mentoring. Meet a Mentor Mom who has been through it all and has great advice and a willing ear.
Learn to lead. MOPS groups are organized and run by mothers of preschoolers. Gain leadership skills through the training and experience provided by MOPS.
YOU SAY YOUR WORK SCHEDULE DOESN’T WORK WITH OUR MOPS SCHEDULE??
We’d love to have you join us for MOMMUNITY dinners for working moms! If you’d like to meet monthly with other moms for a tasty meal (cooked by someone else), table talk and time to build new friendships, please contact Pastor Britta at gro.cphsnull@attirb. Childcare will be available if needed.
