E91 MOPS 2018 - 2019 Registration
September 7th - September 13th, 2018
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. 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. As a ministry, we want to serve one another well. *NEW this year, and on that note, we are requiring each mom to serve ONCE per year in MOPS Kids on either Thursday or Friday. An online Sign-up Genius will be emailed as we approach the beginning of the MOPS Year, and spots will be filled by first come, first serve. This will give our benefit our group in really great ways; 1) it will give us flexibility in fundraising (since childcare is our biggest cost), 2) it will help us ensure our required numbers for childcare workers to maintain ratios, 3) it will give you the opportunity to see what happens in the classrooms. (And, NO, you will not be required to help in your child(s) class(es). Also, *NEW this year, each mom must also select a MOPS Team to serve on, see details below. There is an option to contribute an extra $20 instead of serving on a Team. For each Team, you would would work together with the dedicated Steering Team Leader for details.
Here are the Team options, with brief examples of what duties may entail.
**Hospitality Team: Arrive early to help set-up the room for our meeting; setting tables, brewing coffee, setting up the brunch table, setting up the swap table and cutting casseroles as they arrive. Stay late to help clean-up the room after our meeting; clearing tables, putting away all MOPS supplies, putting coffee away and washing any dishes that are left behind. Be a connection at Playdates and/or MNOs. Help prepare any crafts for creative activities.
**Fundraising Team: Setup, tear down, decorate at Fundraising Events. Call Area Business for Donations; you will receive a list of businesses to call and a script to use to ask for donations. Work with team to setup, execute, deliver Silent Auction items.
**Prayer & Care Team: Help setup and put away MOPS Swap items. Meet and pray with other moms who are on this team. Help gather gifts for new moms, pregnancies, babies, etc. Help deliver gift baskets to moms in need.
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.
