Our Easter Meeting

On Tuesday, we had our "Easter" meeting.  The devotion was on the woman at the well, and how Christ pursued her, just as He pursues us today.  He wants all of us to follow and believe on Him, just as the Samaritan woman learned to do.

After the devotion, we had a few announcements:
  • Moms' Night Out on the fourth Friday of the month.
  • Group Activity/Play Date on the fourth Tuesday of the month.
  • Church library is full of things for MOPS moms, and we are all welcome to check books out from the library.  We can also donate books and videos that we think would be useful to other moms.
  • The steering team complied a list of fun Biblical Easter activities for the family.  It can be found in our Facebook group and here.
  • We are still looking for someone to volunteer to be the fundraising coordinator for next year. 
After that, we had some fun, tasty goodies and some great fellowship.  Then it was time for craft!  We created some cute bird's nest charms for necklaces.  I think we all enjoyed this craft, as it was easy to fix any mistakes!  If you missed it, there are a bunch of tutorials on the web - from videos to step-by-step written directions.  Here are a few pictures of the ones we created:

Our next meeting (4/2) we will have a dentist coming to answer all of the questions we have about caring for our kids' teeth and proper dental care. We hope to see everyone there!

Last Two Meetings - Two AMAZING Guest Speakers!

Our last two meetings we had two amazing speakers.  The first was on February 19.  We had Sarah Beckmand from Salt and Clay Ministries.  Her presentation was on SAFEguarding your marriage.  The big keys are to spend time with your husband and actually engaging in conversation!  Yes, our kids are very important, but our marriage needs time as well. 

Last week (March 5), we had Cory Ledford, and financial consultat, to speak to us on Growing Money-Smart Kids.  He was able to give us ideas for teaching our kids about money, saving, and wise spending from birth through the college years.  It is never to early to start showing and teaching our kids about money, providing them the financial literacy they will need to make wise decisions later in life.

Our next meeting (March 19) we will have a fun craft as well as so ideas for Easter activities to teach your kids the salvation message.

Also, we have a playdate scheduled for March 26 as well as a Moms' Night Out on March 22.  For more information on these, you can email us!
