Moms Together (Formerly MOPS)

Why not MOPS?  Our leadership determined that the MOPS Organization was not meeting the needs of our moms and it was quite expensive.  We are still dedicated to teach and encourage moms in parenting, fellowship, spiritual growth, and sharing experiences.  You are not “the only one” as it may seem when you are isolated.

All moms are invited – Moms Together welcomes moms from all walks of life, from the time a mom is expecting her first child, throughout the mothering years.  There is no membership fee.

Childcare: Your children will be cared for during the meeting.

Meeting Schedule – Moms Together meets twice monthly from September to May, on the first and third Thursday of each month from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.

First meeting this Fall:  Sept 21, 2017, 9:30am-11:30am

Location:  Presbyterian Church, 15 Main Street, Arkport (next door to Cy’s Shurfine)Moms meet in the Mission Hall (the smaller, stand alone building).  Children are cared for in the basement level of the church.  Enter by the side door, off the driveway.

The curriculum will be Where Moms Connect,  A Year of Encouragement
Each mom will have a book titled  A Mom’s Book of Encouragement.  
A lesson will be studied together at each meeting.  Moms are asked to contribute toward the cost of the book.

Special Guests will speak on topics such as:  Car seats, Cutting children’s hair, Postpartum depression, and other parenting topics.
