In Case You Missed it

Here is what happened today at MOPS:

We started off with a fun ice-breaker game.  Everyone randomly paired up with another mom and got to know each other.  Then, after a few minutes, our Creativity Director asked some questions about the mom you just talked to.  The moms with the most right answers got little prizes for being plunging into a new friendship.

Then, it was time for the devotion by our Coordinator shared a devotion from Proverbs 31 Ministries.  At the end, it challenges us to read one chapter of Proverbs a day for a month.  Are you in for the challenge?

Next was the Mom of the Day drawing and announcements.  The big announcements are:
  • Craft Fair - Saturday, November 3
    • Your discussion group is signed up either to help set up on Friday from 9-12 (childcare provided) or clean up Saturday from 3-5.
    • If possible, please bring some baked goods nicely packaged for selling at the fair.
    • Also, each discussion group is making a basket to raffle off.  Don't forget to bring your item to the next meeting so we can get them ready for the Craft Fair!
  • Snack for MOPPETS - If you haven't brought one already, please bring one to the next meeting.  We are looking for things like animal cookies, pretzels, and crackers/goldfish.
  • Pumpkin Patch Trip - Tuesday, October 23rd
    • Please arrive promptly at 9am, as another group is signed up after us.
    • Please email us if you didn't sign up and plan on going.
After all fo the announcements, it was time for FOOD!  And of course, there was time for talking and chatting while eating.

Then we had a speaker today on teaching our kids about God now in order to prevent them from abandoning the faith when they get older.  Some of the key points were:
  • Be grounded in the Bible and God as parents.
  • Daily teach your child (or children) about God.
  • Make sure God is always the focus - not just the stories in the Bible.
  • Allow your children to see you study the Bible, pray, and focus on God.
After the speaker, we broke into small groups to discuss what we had learned from the speaker as well as share prayer requests before picking up the kids and heading home.

Next meeting is Tuesday, October 15.  Hope to see everyone there!
