Our MOPS group is a dynamic, inviting environment where moms can come just as they are to build friendships, be encouraged, and gain practical parenting strategies. All while their children are lovingly cared for in the MOPPETS program.

December 2 Recap

Merry Christmas MOPS Moms!
We had a fanastic Christmas Brunch. The food was yummy and the conversations lively! Your gift to me of singing Christmas carols was a fun highlight for me...even though I did have to convince a few that we were having fun! The mug exchange was a hit! I am so proud of you girls...over 40 moms and not one of you forgot your mug! That's impressive! It was amazing to me to see how many of you already have your Christmas tree/lights up by December go girls!

Jodi Vermaas shared an awesome message about Christ's birth, His fulfilling of the prophecy's and that He alone can help us find peace in the midst of our day to day lives. By taking a closer look at who Jesus is, our lives can be changed...forever! Jodi's friend, Jenn, shared a heartfelt song of "Mary Did You Know?"

We closed out the meeting "In the spirit of giving....":
- Giving to Teen MOPS - over $300 was collected in our piggy banks/spare change containers.
- MOPS at Real Life giving each attendee an ornament from the tree.
- Giving the gift of Free Time to SHOP, WRAP, or NAP for our next meeting on December 16th. See the evite invitation for complete details.

Merry Christmas and may you remember the True Reason for this holiday season!
