Interested in joining Darien MOPS this coming fall? We’d love to have you! Click HERE for the Fall 2011 Registration Form, which includes details on dates, cost, childcare, etc.
The following includes some of the information on the form, and gives you a good idea of what we’re all about:
MOPS International is about celebrating motherhood, meeting needs, making connections, and experiencing God’s love through relationships and resources.
MOPS offers not only childcare for little ones, but “mom-care” for Moms. Once her children are settled, the MOPS mom joins a program tailor-made to meet her needs. She can eat a lovely breakfast (and not have to share it!), and she can engage in adult conversation!
A MOPS morning includes a speaker who will inspire moms in topics relating to womanhood, marriage, child rearing and relationships from abiblical perspective. Discussion follows in small groups, where each mom is free to share her joys and struggles with other moms who truly understand. Finally, an craft or activity time promotes a sense of accomplishment through creative expression.
Meanwhile, the MOPPETS program provides loving, quality childcare for infants through age six. Moms can relax as their little ones are having fun in age-appropriate classrooms of their own. A MOPPETS morning is filled with stories, songs, snack, playtime and lots of love!
MOPS helps mothers recognize that when they take time to meet their needs, they are more effective in meeting the needs of their families.
MOPS meets at St. Paul’s Church, 471 Mansfield Ave. in Darien, every other Wednesday, from 9:15am to 11:30am. Meeting dates for Fall 2011: Sept 7, 21, Oct 5, 19, Nov 2, 16, 30, Dec 14.
