A special welcome from our Mops CoordinatorI am so excited to share with you what our Mothers of Preschoolers is doing this year…Centerpoint MOPS is a great way to get connected to other moms in the nearby community. We get together on Tuesdays weekly, alternating meetings and playgroup. This year we are diving deeper into friendships and taking our theme, “PLUNGE” to a whole new authentic level. Everyone wants to be known and know others, but in the midst of parenting and life, sometimes we feel overwhelmed, invisible and alone. Making grown up friendships is not always easy when we can barely finish a sentence or a meal before our preschooler demands for our attention. Here at Centerpoint, MOPS is providing an atmosphere where you will get to finish your sentence and breakfast, and also refresh your mom connections, develop your family connections, and deepen your faith connectio. This year we will focus on 5 essentials; Self, Marriage & Family, Children, Faith and Practical skills. In Christ,Susannah Hosbein, Centerpoint Mops Coordinator Our purpose is to nurture all mothers of preschoolers by meeting their distinct needs.
