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.

MOPS THIS tuesday and Wednesday!

WOW!!! Can you believe it is almost NOVEMBER? That would mean... yes... I am going to say it.... CHRISTMAS IS 59 days away! Where did this year go? Okay, I will stop sending you all into a panic attack... let's focus on the here and now!!

It is time for MOPS !!!!!! Get excited, get pumped, get ready to explore our differing our mothering styles!!! I am so glad we are all different... this world would be SO boring if that weren't the case!!!

Don't forget this TUES./ WEDS. at 9:30 am (6:45 pm for night group) in the MPR!!! Do your best to be on time so you don't miss a single minute!!!

The MOPPETS are going to be making some unique crafts this week , so the team has requested that you bring a 4x6 photo of your toddler (ages 2 and up)!! Any photo will do! I can't wait to see what they have up their sleeve!!!

This month's outreach is helping to "buff" up our chartering ministry's food pantry. As we go into the holiday season, we have a lot of families locally that need a little extra help! So we are bringing in some items that will help our community!!! Last meeting, we started by asking you to bring in a canned food item to help support the MOPPETS in their drive for the food pantry, but since then-- the food pantry has sent out another need! However you can help will bless someone this holiday season for sure!!!

Here is a list of what is needed:

-Peanut Butter & Jelly
-Pancake Mix & Syrup
-Tuna & Tuna Helper
-Spaghetti/Pasta & Jar/Canned Sauce
-Rice & bagged/canned Beans
-Green Beans/Peas & canned Fruits
-Cereal & Oatmeal

-canned foods/soup

Whew... looks like I am going shopping!!!! :o)

Don't forget that tomorrow night... Friday from 4-10 pm is the Real Life Fall Festival at the church. For more information or to register for "ride/game all night" wristbands click HERE!!!!. You will have SO much fun! Come say "HI" at the MOPS game too!! (we will be in the pre-school area!!)

On a quick note! Tis the season to be sicky, fa la la la la la la la la!!! We try VERY hard to keep our MOPPETS area as germ free as possible so your little ones don't take their lessons on sharing too literal and bring home germs to share! That time of the year is here and already running crazy!! Please read over and re-familiarize yourself with our wellness policy HERE! Thanks for helping us all out!!!

We are so excited to see each and every one of you this week!!! Have a great weekend!!!
