Meeting Review: Our First Meeting!

Thanks to all the moms who joined us at our first MOPS meeting of the new year. We hope you had a fun morning connecting with the other moms. Thanks to the Steering Committee and our Mentor Moms for providing the brunch!

At the meeting, Mentor Mom Melene led the group in a 9-11 remembrance and shared a devotion about the mother of Moses. Then, everyone joined in a heartfelt farewell to Tiffany H., who is leaving us as the MOPS Coordinator. Tiffany will be greatly missed, but she leaves a lasting legacy here at MOPS. Our new MOPS Coordinator is Elena E.

The members of each discussion group spent some time getting to know each other by answering fun questions about themselves. And, isn’t this sweet? Laura welcomed the members of her Glamorous Gold table with a Mom’s Survival Kit.

Christin, our Creative Activities leader, invited the moms to make a Bird’s Nest Necklace with beads representing their children.  This craft was a huge hit. Click here to see complete instructions.

We hope you all got a copy of the MOPS newsletter and one of our magnets with the meeting dates for the year. If you didn’t, be sure to pick one up at the next meeting.

Our next meeting is on September 25. The topic is “A Beautiful Mess: Handling Your Emotions.” Sara M.’s Gorgeous Greens and Stefanie’s Beauteous Blues have brunch/cleanup duty.  Please RSVP on our private Facebook event. See you there!
