[September 04, 2012]
ATLANTA -- If you are the
mother of a child from birth through kindergarten, Mothers of Preschoolers,
or MOPS, is the group for you. It's a place for moms to connect with other
moms of preschool-aged children. It's a place to experience mothering
support, personal growth and spiritual hope while meeting new friends.
The group will have its first
meeting on Sept. 5 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Atlanta Christian
Church. Meetings will be on the first and third Wednesday of each
month from September through May.
MOPS encourages moms to value
mothering, whether they are working or stay-at-home moms. The group
helps to equip each participant as a mother, woman and leader to be
the best mom possible.
A typical meeting will involve
mothers dropping off their children in the nursery, where they will
be cared for by volunteers. Then the mothers will be free to enjoy
time with the other moms. The meeting will start with refreshments
and conversation. Then there will be a speaker, presentation or
demonstration on a variety of topics. There will also be a craft
project, just for fun, while the moms get to know each other. The
meeting will conclude with small group time, when the moms are
divided into smaller groups for discussion time to get to know one

Simply put, MOPS is a safe place where
moms can go and know that they are not alone in their mothering
journey. MOPS provides resources and even mentor moms (moms who have
"been there and done that") to help along the way.
