Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)
9:15 am to 11:45 am
Dear Mom of a Preschooler,
Thank you for your interest in MOPS!
MOPS is a non-denominational international Christian organization dedicated to meeting the particular needs of mothers of young children. The goal of MOPS is to nurture all mothers of preschoolers by reaching out with encouragement and support and also by offering leadership opportunities.
At a MOPS meeting, you will be welcomed by a cup of hot coffee, delicious food and the knowing smiles of other mothers of preschoolers. Then, sit back and enjoy while a speaker shares on topics relevant to your life as a mom such as marriage, child rearing and the home. Next, you will have the opportunity to network with other moms as you break into small groups for discussion. And finally, take home a craft that you actually had time to complete!
Your children will be lovingly cared for nearby in MOPPETS while you are at MOPS. MOPPETS is a program that includes age-appropriate teaching, story time, crafts and play. The policies and registration forms for MOPPETS are attached. Please be sure to fill out a MOPPETS registration form for each child that will be coming to MOPPETS. (We will happily provide you with additional forms if you require more.)
MOPS will meet on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from October 2014 to May 2015, with an optional Bible Study the 2nd Wednesday of the month according to Greenwich Schools Calendar at the Presbyterian Church of Old Greenwich. We warmly welcome everyone with children between the ages of 0 to 5, including children in Kindergarten. We do however ask that you sign up for MOPS only if you are committed to attending the majority of the meetings, as there is as a tremendous amount of planning and preparation put into each meeting.
To cover the cost of supplies, MOPS participation fees, refreshments, etc. we do need to collect dues. There is a registration fee of $250. You may pay $125 in September and $125 in January. If the payment schedule is a problem for you, please give what you can comfortably give…we want you more than your money!
As space is limited, please return the MOPS and MOPPETS registration forms and a check with your dues to:
MOPS at PCOG
