It’s That Time Again!!!

As summer comes to a close, a new season of MOPS begins!! Mark your calendars for Thursday,September 12 from 9:30-11:30.  This years theme is….

Beautiful_Mess_Logo_small  Moms live in messes. The toys, crumbs, and spit-up are their natural surroundings. Moms often feel like a mess. They are exhausted, under-showered, and hormonal. Their past and present circumstances and decisions can leave them feeling inadequate for God’s love and purposes.  A Beautiful Mess — reminds moms that beauty can come out of their difficult spots. The grime of mothering young children brings the beauty of motherhood. The bruises of life can bring God’s redemption. Embrace Your Story — reminds moms that their past, present and future can be used for good. God knows where each of us has been, where we are today and has set in motion where we are headed.

Looking forward to spending time with you all again! Can’t wait to meet some new friends as well and celebrate our beautiful messes together!

 

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Eph 2:10
