MOPS

       
Mothers of Preschoolers

MOPS is an international Christian organization with fresh, relevant, insights to Motherhood. Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time.

If you are expecting or have an infant, toddler or preschooler: Try our MOPS group. Each session we will offer childcare, so you can get a chance to connect with moms, face to face, while your kids are safe and making friends, too. The MOPS group at CUMC provides real, authentic relationships for Mothers of Preschoolers. Ultimately, we hope to point moms to their true lifeline, Jesus!   For some, the MOPS resources online as well as the videos and devotions shared at meetings are a new encounter with Jesus.  Come join us!

THEME:

In order to live life to the full this year, let’s:

Have More Fun

Fun is often the first thing to go when life gets hectic because it seems frivolous and extravagant. This year we are going to remember that we can still have fun even when life is hard. We are going to let the laundry wait and build a fort with our kids. We’ll stop waiting until everything on our to-do list is finished until we have fun, and do one thing a month just because it makes us happy. This is our year to remember what it feels like to enjoy ourselves.

Fear Less

No more fearing what people might think or say. No more letting fear paralyze us or concern about the future rob us of the present. At any given moment, there is courage inside of each of us that may be lying dormant. This year we’ll bring it to life. We’ll change our ways of thinking, calm our anxiety, and surrender our need to control. This is the year of faith over fear, and abundance over scarcity.

Find Our People

This year we’ll meet our neighbors, learn the name of the cashier at the grocery store, and invite our MOPS table over for dinner. We need our people, and they need us. Maybe it means asking someone we respect to be our mentor, or perhaps it means marching in a parade, throwing candy and inviting other moms to MOPS. Finding our people takes some vulnerability, but it will also mean being known, belonging, and helping others feel the same. Life to the full happens best with people by our side.

Here’s to a year of living the full life. Full of fun, joy, refreshment, trust and rejuvenation.
