Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)
9:15 am to 11:45 am
Dear Mom of a Preschooler, Fall 2016
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. The friendships that form in MOPS are genuine, deep, and an important way we support one another through this phase of our lives and hopefully beyond!
We usually start our time together with a bit of socialization over hot coffee and delicious food. We then move into the more “formal” time with a speaker who shares on topics relevant to a mom's life today; such as marriage, parenting, faith, life balance, and much more. After the speaker, we break up into relaxed discussion groups to share experiences and gain perspectives. One of the most valuable aspects of this group is that the moms come from such varied backgrounds which adds spice to the conversations. And although each woman is unique, we all have one common goal, to grow in who we are as woman and mothers.
Your children will be lovingly cared for nearby in MOPPETS while you are at MOPS. MOPPETS is a program that includes age appropriate teaching, singing, 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 September 28 to May at the Presbyterian Church of Old Greenwich. We warmly welcome everyone with children between the ages of 0 to 5/6ish, 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 October and $125 in January. If finances are an issue for you, please give what you can comfortably or speak with one of us about it…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 as soon as possible to: MOPS at PCOG
38 West End Ave.
Old Greenwich, CT 06870
