(Mothers of Preschoolers)
Picnic on August 15 – 11 am
Becoming a MOPS member allows you to participate in a movement that is helping women all around the world become not only great moms but also leaders in their communities. When moms are well equipped they can support and encourage one another. Being a mom might be the hardest job you’ll ever have but we bet that it’s the best one too! Sometimes you just need a safe space to breathe, get much need encouragement and share some yummy snacks. MOPS Membership provides resources (and lots of fun goodies) that remind you that we are all in this together. To learn more about our fall program, or to register, all are invited to a picnic on August 15 at 11 am. Just bring a light lunch dish to share. Kids welcome too! The fall program begins on September 12 and meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Childcare is provided. MOPS Registration Form 2017

Homeless Outreach Ministry
November 4 Trip to New York City
According to a recent report, over half a million people in the USA live on the streets, in cars, in homeless shelters, or in transitional housing. Of that number, 206,286 are people in families, 358,422 are individuals, and 25% of the entire group are children. 15% are considered chronically homeless. 8% are veterans with 1.4 million veterans at risk of homelessness. One of the greatest ways we can help make a difference is by reaching out to those in need. And the need is great among our homeless. Our Homeless Outreach Ministry is planning quarterly visits to nearby major metropolitan areas as well as within our own county. Our next trip, planned for November 4, will be to New York City.
