MOPS

The Mother of All Mom Meet-Ups

What is MOPS?

If you are a first time mom or a “seasoned” mom, we want to extend a very warm welcome to you. Our hope is that you will find encouragement, support, relevant teaching, and opportunities to develop relationships with other women who are in your same season of life.  We are confident that as you become more involved in our group, you will be better equipped to face the challenges that motherhood has to offer. We've all been placed in this time and place in history as the tribe of women who are raising the world. We know we mother better together, so ALL moms are welcome at MOPS. From the time you get pregnant our doors are open. MOPS is a non-denominational Christian organization.  You do not need to be a churchgoer or from a specific denomination to join MOPS.  We welcome women from all faith or non-faith backgrounds and beliefs. The vision of MOPS is to see no mom alone – because better moms make a better world.

Join us at CPAK MOPS!

WHAT TO EXPECT:  A typical MOPS meeting includes practical teaching through speakers, demonstrations and videos.  Occasionally there might be a craft or activity, but most important, you'll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of motherhood.   Due to Covid 19 restrictions we are currently unable to meet as a large group as we have in the past, with childcare, brunch, and live speakers.  So, this year we are introducing “Mini-MOPS” small groups where you will receive the same great content we would cover in a large group format but delivered in a small group, and a shortened timeframe.  After registering you will receive an email with a link to a short survey where you can indicate when you want to meet (morning, afternoon, or evening) and if you prefer to meet in-person or virtually.  Based on your preferences you will be placed in a small group.  

WHEN: All small groups will meet on the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays Time TBD by you, morning (10-11 am), afternoon (1:30-2:30 pm), or evening (7-8 pm)

WHERE: In-person and virtual options available.  Register to choose the time and venue that best meets your availability.

CHILDCARE: With the current restrictions and school situation we are not able to offer childcare for the in-person meetings as we have in the past.  We do encourage you to meet without children for the 1 -1.5 hour time to get the most out of your time together.   If you have no other childcare options, please reach out to us to help! We don’t want any mom to feel excluded because of lack of resources.

2020-2021 THEME SUMMARY
This year, we want to tell you two things that will change your life if you believe them. First, you are fearfully and wonderfully made. "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14 Second, because you are fearfully and wonderfully made, you have work to do; meaningful work that was built into your DNA before you were born. Work that you were made for. Sometimes, we believe that our motherhood is a constraint that limits what we can do in this life. We want to remind you that motherhood isn’t a constraint – it’s a catalyst. In fact, God appointed a woman named Deborah to be a judge over the nation of Israel. She was a leader, warrior and prophetess who ultimately helped an entire nation rediscover its identity and destiny as the people of God. And she declared that she accomplished it because she AROSE AS A MOTHER. The villagers ceased in Israel; they ceased to be until I arose; I, Deborah, arose as a mother in Israel. Judges 5:7 (ESV) Before God appointed Deborah, the inhabitants of Israel were distressed and had no fight left in them. Does this sound familiar? Is it possible that through this MOPS community of ours, each of us could reignite a sense of strength, joy and courage back into ourselves, our homes and our culture? 
This is the year we arise as mothers to awaken a weary and sleeping world. The year to accept and believe that God will fulfill his promises to you, and to embrace your motherhood as a catalyst to his plans and promises for you. Here are the three things we will do to remind ourselves of who God made us to be:
BE STRONG: Arise as a mother. This is your year to get strong physically and mentally. To own the body you’ve been given and build muscle and stamina so you can do all the things that God is calling you to do; important things like chase your kids around the backyard, carry groceries for your elderly neighbor, or even build a mud house for a family in Rwanda. To embrace your own body’s abilities and build it up – whatever your physical ability may be. It also means being strong mentally. Sometimes our thought life needs a little tightening up. It might mean seeing a therapist who can give you tools for dealing with anxiety, or maybe developing mental stamina so you can endure the daily toddler meltdowns. Often we wait for all the right details to come into place before we act, but maybe this is the year God is saying, “Stop waiting and get to it.” Body and mind – this is the year we embrace the self that God gave us.
DO YOUR WORK: Doing your work happens in big and small, but  always significant ways. It’s about persevering through the daily grind of essential but mundane tasks; and it’s also about making brave choices to do new things. Doing your work looks different for each of us, but everyone’s work will require some grit and courage. Maybe it’s choosing forgiveness, healing from past trauma, or making amends to those you’ve hurt. Maybe it’s sharing the secret you’ve been carrying for years, or unlearning harmful patterns of behavior. And when it comes to mothering … God gave those kids to you, Mama! You’ve been appointed and no one else can mother them like you. You are made of brave spirit. You’ll figure it out because you always have, and you have God and your MOPS sisters by your side.
CHASE JOY: Actively seeking out joy is how we fight discouragement and fear. It’s how we fight our tendency to complain, accuse or be offended. Joy is a decision, a really brave one, about how you will respond to life in all its circumstances. Joy is the most magnetic and contagious force in the universe, the type that people around you can’t help but notice – especially those looking up toward their mom. It is a gladness that’s not just reserved for happy moments, but particularly during the hardest days that come your way. Joy is the deep knowing that you were made for more than anxiety, depression and fear. This is your year to reclaim joy and share it with others
