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
Spring semester fees are due in January.
We never want financial issues to keep anyone from being a part of MOMS in the MIDDLE, and we do offer scholarships when needed. Please contact Shelley Ailes at ShelleyAiles@gmail.com or 317-345-6894 to receive the scholarship information and application. All requests will be kept confidential.
We are happy that you are interested in joining MOMS in the MIDDLE and look forward to a great year!

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 email@example.com.
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

There are several donation options available through this registration. Please consider helping our group meet our fundraising goals through donating.

Equipping you to make disciples and lead small groups at E91.
Designed to help beginners as well as seasoned experts in helping people take next steps with Jesus.
We all want to make a difference in our world and in the lives of others. And we know that engaging with people about Christ and the gospel, helping them take next steps with Jesus, is an investment in eternity. But what does it look like to start intentionally investing in the lives of others? How do we help people take next steps with Jesus through a small group I lead? Is discipleship something only for those who have a certain level of maturity and training? Multiply 101 is E91’s introduction to making disciples, and is designed to equip you to begin helping people take next steps with Jesus.
While this class includes 6 sessions, only three are completed in a classroom setting.
January 10: (Session 1) January 17: (Session 2) February 21: (Session 6)
Session 3, 4 and 5 are completed online, on your own time. (more info to come)
The next Multiply 101 is starts Wednesday, January 10 from 6:30pm to 7:45pm and will be meeting in the Friendship Room.
