Caroline Whitmore is busy organizing a MOPS group ( Mother's Of Pre-Schoolers).  This will be a group geared toward mom's of younger kids, but any mom is welcome!

MOPS is an international organization comprised of individual groups of mother's.  Their website ( sums up their mission this way:  "a place to find friendship, community, resources and support for you as a woman and mother so you're not alone. Moms have found community through MOPS for almost 40 years - we're your mothering authority. MOPS holds and shares the collected wisdom of mothers and experts (usually one and the same!)"

This will give you an idea of the MOPS groups ministry values:

  • Dignity: The dignity of each human life and of each individual mother of preschoolers, no matter where she has been, what she has done or how she is choosing to live her life today, embracing both believers and nonbelievers and all ethnic and socioeconomic groups.
  • Women: The equipping of women to become all that God has designed them to be.
  • Mothering: The value of mothering for its contribution to individuals, children, society at large, future generations and eternity.
  • Relationships: Relationships including the male/female marital relationship, the parent/child relationship, and the ultimate fulfillment of all needs through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Lifestyle Evangelism: Lifestyle evangelism as expressed through Christ-like relationships in an environment for growth and spiritual development as faith shared through actions and words.
  • Leadership Development: The equipping of women to gain confidence in their leadership skills and guide others through lifestyle evangelism.
SO - be looking for the announcement of the official first meeting sometime in October.  I'll keep you updated!
