MOMS in the MIDDLE
September 8th - May 18th, 2018
MOMS in the MIDDLE is open to moms who have at least one school-age child (kindergarten through high school.) We will meet twice monthly, and we encourage you to drop in as often as you can. We will have light refreshments, we'll watch speakers on video from "RightNow Media" and have plenty of visiting and discussion time at our tables with 4-6 other women.
Currently, there are no plans for childcare. However, please indicate on your registration if you would use it if it WERE available.
MOMS in the MIDDLE is a welcoming community for all moms to share experiences, learn from each other, and build friendships. Our mission is to encourage moms in their own growth, both spiritually and socially, equipping them to teach their children and impact their world.
Meetings are second and fourth Fridays of each month: 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., September - May
Registration fee/first semester dues: $15
Second semester dues: $10

E91 MOPS 2017 - 2018 Registration
November 3rd - November 9th, 2017
E91 MOPS meets September to May. Child care is included for children preschool age and younger. We have two different meeting times to choose from. Pick the day that best matches your schedule:
- 1st & 3rd Fridays from 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM
- 2nd & 4th Thursdays from 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM
What is MOPS?
We are a group for any and all moms of kids from pregnancy to kindergarten. We encourage and equip moms of preschoolers through friendships, fellowship, mentoring, speakers and a warm brunch! Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) is an international organization that believes better moms make a better world. MOPS exists to encourage and equip mothers of young children. Check out the MOPS International website at http://www.mops.org/about/about-us/
What can I expect when joining a MOPS group?
MOPS is a community of moms that want the same thing you do - to be the best mom they can be while not losing sight of your own identity as a woman. MOPS is a place for encouragement, advice, fun and fellowship. You will have a table leader to guide the conversation during meetings and to help plan activities outside of MOPS. There is also a mentor mom at each table (older, wiser mom who is passed the little kid phase) to help with questions and provide encouragement. Our tables sit together at meetings and get together for play dates and mom's night outs outside of MOPS meetings.
What is a MOPS Meeting Like?
We start our meetings with a warm brunch that we take turns bringing. We have time to chat and catch-up on life before hearing a speaker on topics relevant to the busy life stage of mothering young kids. After the speaker, we have some time for discussion before heading out to pick-up our kids. E91 MOPS is a place where you can come as you are, get a break from the relentless duties of motherhood and connect with other women!
I've never left my kids before! What is child care like?
All of our child care workers are background checked, trained and LOVE kids. Your children will hear a Bible story, learn Bible songs, have time to play and have a snack. Our child care workers look forward to seeing your kids each meeting!
How much does MOPS cost?
You will pay $32 at registration. This holds your spot and registers you with MOPS International. This is non-refundable since it is paid to MOPS International. Our semester dues of $50 are due in September and January. The semester dues fund our group's expenses such as child care and brunch supplies. Scholarships are available on an as needed basis. Our MOPS group fundraises throughout the year to keep dues affordable for all families. Our biggest fundraiser is our Golf Scramble & Online Auction in May. About half of our budget comes from fundraising! If you would like more information on a scholarship, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask each member of our group to help out in some way throughout the year. We are a big MOPS group serving 128 families and it takes a lot of work to keep our group running smoothly. At registration, each person must select a service area. There is an option to contribute an extra $20 instead of serving. For each service area, you would only serve ONCE. For example, "Meeting Set-up" means you come early to one meeting to help set-up. Here are some ways you can serve:
Meeting Set-Up: Arrive at 8:30 to help set-up the room for our meeting. Duties include: setting tables, brewing coffee, setting up the brunch table, setting up the swap table and cutting casseroles as they arrive.
Meeting Clean-Up: Stay until 12:00 to help clean-up the room after our meeting. Duties include: clearing tables, putting away all MOPS supplies, putting coffee away and washing any dishes that are left behind.
Child Care Helper: Help in child care alongside two trained workers. Hours are 9:15 - 11:45. You can choose to donate your time or be paid $10 per hour worked. You are able to bring kids with you. Friday moms will help with a Thursday meeting. Thursday moms will help with a Friday meeting.
Call Area Business for Donations: You will receive a list of businesses to call and a script to use to ask for donations. Calls should be made in Jan & Feb to maximize the possibility that we will receive a donation.
Help at the Golf Scramble in May 2018: We always need volunteers to help at registration, drive drinks around to the golfers and help with awards. Sign-up for a two hours shift to help make this event a success!
If you are registering for a day that is on a Waitlist, you will not pay anything at registration. As room is available, the MOPS Coordinator will contact you and payment will be made at the first meeting you attend.
Donating to MOPS
Keeping MOPS affordable for all families is very important to us. Please consider helping our group meet our fundraising goals through donating. Donations to MOPS are tax deductible! There are several donation options available through this registration. Please consider helping our group meet our fundraising goals through donating.
You can contact us at email@example.com with any questions or problems with registration. We look forward to seeing you in September!

We all want to make a difference in our world and in the lives of others.

Secret Church : Cults and Counterfeit Gospels
April 20th - April 21st, 2018
You're probably asking what is 'Secret Church'... Secret church is a 6 hour live simulcast by David Platt each year, spurred on after his ministry in Asian house-churches which are forced to gather in secret and sometimes risk their lives. The goal is to remind us (American Christians) of the hunger for God's Word that exists among the world and to remember and pray for those who cannot meet openly while strengthening our own faith as we encounter teaching from His Word. We will be gathering at the Fehl's and listening in together while following along in the teaching packets (a limited number will be purchased, please register for this event by 3/31 in order to guarantee yourself a packet, which will be paid for by E91). Event officially begins at 7pm and is projected to finish at 1am. Wear your comfy clothes and bring snacks to share as this event goes late into the night!
More info on our topic here: The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the twenty-first century.
For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission, followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?” and “How can I recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeits?” Answering these questions will be the aim of Secret Church 18, “Cults and Counterfeit Gospels.”
We will consider the claims of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will also explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including prosperity teaching that is rampant across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this Secret Church not only enabled to discern false gospels, but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and with peoples around the world.
