HAPPY BIRTHDAY to these MOPS moms celebrating birthdays this month:
To celebrate, each of these moms will get a FREE Chicken Sandwich from Chick-Fil-A of Edinburgh Commons! Please like them on Facebook, if you aren’t already a fan, to thank them for supporting MOPS of Bethel Baptist Church.
Also, KIDS EAT FREE every Tuesday night this month for “Kids Night” at Chick-Fil-A of Edinburgh Commons. Visit this location between 6:00-7:30 PM for crafts, play time, and a free kids meal with each adult combo purchased. Tell them MOPS of Bethel Baptist Church sent you!
Thanks to the Official Sponsor of our MOPS Birthday Announcements:

Registration for our new year of MOPS is open now.
The annual registration fee for MOPS International is $23.95. Make your check payable to “MOPS.”
We never want the cost to stop a mom from attending MOPS. Scholarships are available for moms in need. If you cannot afford to register, please speak privately to a Mentor Mom (Melene, Donna, or Dot) or our Finance Coordinator Sara E.
Registration fees are vital to MOPS International’s mission to ensure that no mom is alone. When you pay your registration fee, MOPS International uses that money to support groups all over the world, especially moms in low-income areas and teenage mothers in Teen MOPS groups.
The registration fee is different from the dues you pay when you attend a MOPS meeting. Our dues are paid at our regular meetings to cover a portion of our expenses, like childcare.
We are required to register our members in order to maintain our charter with MOPS International. All moms who attend our group should be registered, even if they receive a scholarship. This includes all Steering Committee members, Mentor Moms, and MOMSnext members, too.
After you register, you’ll receive a welcome package in the mail from MOPS International. This year’s package includes a cute MOPS tote bag, a sing-along DVD featuring the cuddly character BOZ, and coupons.
You’ll also receive your first issue of MomSense magazine. Flip through and find some encouragement in the pages. Plus, you’ll receive an inspirational e-mail each week from MOPS International.
