Middletown United Methodist Church is beginning a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group with an informal gathering on Friday, December 7th, from 9:00am to 12:00noon. Childcare, as well as our meeting location, will be downstairs in the Adult Wing of the main church building. Hostesses will be available by the front glass entry doors underneath the white tents to greet you and help you find your way.
MOPS is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering and inspiring woman to be the best parents possible. MOPS groups are a special place you may meet like-minded women also passing through this unique stage of life. You will have the opportunity to note only meet new friends, but discover a wealth of helpful hints and smart strategies to deal with the challenges of motherhood.
Typical meetings begin with a breakfast, followed by a speaker presenting information on a topic such as parenting, marriage, nutrition or spiritual growth. Afterwards we multiply into small discussion groups and end with a creative activity or craft.
At this initial gathering, we will learn more about MOPS and determine a convenient day of the month to meet. There is no charge for this December 7th gathering.
