April 21 – RACE, Swap, and Testimony


Hey there Starry Eyed Sisters! It’s our last regular meeting of the year, and it’s jam packed with MOPSy goodness! First up, we’ll be decorating shirts for us to wear to the RACE for the Orphans (or any other time, too). You provide the white shirt and MOPS will provide the paint and stencils. We’ll also have our spring swap, so bring in all of those items you’ve been wanting to leave your house, and take some new treasures home! Last, we’ll hear testimonies from some of our mamas about how MOPS has made a difference in their lives. You may have to crack open that tiny pack of tissues that sits on your table.

2017 Banquet Invitation

The MOPS banquet is our last hoorah for the year and will be held Friday, May 5. This is an evening event that requires a ticket to cover the cost of your meal. Many ladies bring their husbands to enjoy the night, and just as many come solo. There will be childcare during the banquet, so this will be a fun night out! Some of the things we have planned are a photo booth, mixer games, and a s’mores station.

But wait, there’s more! During the summer you won’t even have time to miss MOPS, because there’s a Bible study and MOPS play dates to attend! Our summer activities are open to the community, which means we’d love for you to bring a friend. There will be lots of information about summer activities on your table this week, so grab a flyer to stick on your fridge.


  • Our last fundraiser is a Partner’s Pizza Night this Tuesday, April 18, from 4-8:30 PM. Please encourage your friends and family to dine in or pick up and MOPS will receive a percentage of the profits. This fundraiser will help cover our end of year expenses.

  • Brunch is being provided by the Moon Silver and Big Dipper Light Blue tables.

  • Bring a WHITE shirt to paint.

  • Bring your stuff to SWAP!

  • Banquet tickets will be on sale this Friday and are $10 per person.
