Our Kick Off Meeting

Thursday, September 9th we had the kick-off meeting at Central Baptist. Great food was served and we all enjoyed meeting with our new evening small groups.

We have small groups for moms of school aged children, stay at home moms, working moms, and moms of special needs children.

The decorations around this years theme of "Momology" were so cute!

Our children also had a great time. Here is a picture of just one of the crafts that are MOPPETS made:

Our morning kick-off meeting will be next Friday on September 24th at 9am. After eating brunch on this day we will have a craft project. To see a list of our other meeting dates please see our Meeting Dates page.

This is a very special and sometimes trying time for moms when they need extra support and encouragement. MOPS is for you, regardless of what adjective you put in front of Mom: stay-at-home, working, single, or married. You can learn more about MOPS International at
